Mountain Lion Hunting Seasons
For requirements on hunter orange, legal means of taking, public lands, shooting hours, carcass disposal, more than one method of take in the field, tracking with dogs, field tagging and checking requirements, see Big Game Regulations.
There is no season on mountain lions. However, mountain lions can be taken year-round when committing or about to commit depredation on any domesticated animal or when deemed an immediate safety hazard.
Individuals who kill a mountain lion must immediately call a game warden (see Game Warden Directory in Appendix) or other Department employee.
The carcass (including hide) must be presented to a Department employee within 24 hours for biological data collection, which may include the removal of a tooth.
