    That was in last year's too, but not the year before. I think the whole daylong shooting hours business for predators was introduced part way through the year in 2011.

    As for taking more than one lion per year, that has been around for years. As far back as I have old regs for, the following has been in there:

    "In units with a multiple bag limit, hunters may take one (1) mountain lion per day until the multiple bag limit is reached. Once the multiple bag limit has been reached, the season will remain open and revert to calendar year bag limit of one (1) mountain lion. Mountain lions taken under the one (1) per day multiple bag limit do not apply towards the calendar year bag limit until the multiple bag limit is reached."

    So in certain units, a person could conceivably take more than 3 lions. I would suggest studying the regs very carefully before taking any lions. The rules are a bit convoluted, and it would be easy to make a mistake.

    But heck, I too am still waiting for my first lion...

  5. Thanks RK. I was always under the impression that lions were one per year. No telling where I got that idea. :rolleyes:
     
  6. I think at some point they allowed more then one in specific units, kind of depredation for the sheep. But dont remember all the above.
     
  7. And shotgun shooting shot is allowed now.
