This news release was archived on Saturday, November 27, 2004

The hunting of all mountain lions in northwestern Montana hunting district 130, which includes portions of Lake and Missoula counties, will close at one-half hour after sunset on Thursday, October 28, 2004.

The order halting the Fall Hunting Season Without Dogs came shortly after Fish, Wildlife & Parks officials received word that the pre-established harvest quota for lions in this district had been met.  This district will re-open for the hunting of all mountain lions for the Winter Season beginning December 1, 2004.
