Mountain Lion Hunting Seasons
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 Wardens (PDF)) 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.
