The hunting of male mountain lions in western Montana hunting districts 290, 291 and the western half of 292, in portions of Powell, Granite and Missoula counties, will close at one-half hour after sunset on Saturday, Dec. 7, 2002.

The order halting the hunt came shortly after Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks officials received word that the pre-established harvest sub-quota for the districts combined had been met.
