Mountain Lion Change to Reg
« on: November 01, 2018, 11:27:06 AM »

MOUNTAIN LION SPECIAL REGULATION:

• Hunters are responsible for calling 1-877-438-0447 before hunting to determine if any mountain lion management zones are closed.

• The harvest threshold for each zone is a total harvest threshold. The percent of adult females in the annual harvest by management zone will be one of several factors monitored to determine if harvest thresholds should be adjusted. If the 3-year average adult female harvest comprises greater than 25% of the total harvest for a management zone, the harvest threshold may be reduced for that management zone. The 3-year average will be evaluated annually. Additionally, the proportion of all females in the harvest, total management zone harvest, and trend in annual population estimates will be monitored and used to guide harvest thresholds.
