Hunting District Restrictions, Closures & Reopenings
The hunting of all mountain lions in Montana hunting districts 530 and 590, in portions of Fergus, Golden Valley, Musselshell, Petroleum, Big Horn and Yellowstone counties, closed at one-half hour after sunset on Friday, October 28, 2011.
The closure notice for the hunt came shortly after Fish, Wildlife & Parks officials received word that the pre-established fall harvest quota for the districts combined had been met.
These hunting districts will reopen for the hunting of all mountain lions for the winter season beginning Dec. 1, 2011.
