Mountain lion hunting in two southwest Montana districts has closed until December.
Mountain lion hunting closed in hunting districts 318 and 350, in portions of Jefferson and Silver Bow counties, closed at one half hour after sunset on Sunday, Oct.31, according to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks. These areas will reopen for all mountain lion hunting for the winter season beginning Dec. 1.
The closure notice for the hunt came shortly after Fish, Wildlife & Parks officials received word that the pre-established harvest quota for the districts combined had been met.
