The hunting of all male mountain lions in northcentral Montana hunting districts 400, 401, 403, 406, 415, and 441, which includes portions of Toole, Pondera, Liberty, Chouteau, Glacier and Teton counties, will close at one-half hour after sunset on Friday, October 4, 2013.
The above listed hunting districts will also re-open immediately for the taking of 1 female mountain lion due to a data entry error.
The closure notice for the hunt came shortly after Fish, Wildlife & Parks officials received word that the pre-established harvest sub-quota for the districts combined had been met.
These hunting district(s) will re-open for the hunting of all mountain lions for the winter season beginning December 1, 2013.
