Hunting District Restrictions, Closures & Reopenings
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.
