Folks, I have run this topic and poll issue on another forum and decided to bring it here as well. After reading about the outcome of the 2007 Hunt Proposals recently adopted by the AZG&F Commission, I have to ponder the decisions made with regard to the Mt. Lions. I've gleaned from various posts from those who attended the latest public input meetings, that it appears the Commission adopted a 3-month hunt restriction on Mt. Lions. I believe most us are aware of the season closure for Bobcats and why that rule was inacted. Was the same thought process for bobcats the decisive reason for the restrictions placed on our lions? Perhaps. I tend to think the latest rule proposal adoptions concerning lions are nothing more than appeasement to the relentless pressure levied by the Anti's. I'm wondering how many folks here think the decision was made using sound biology science, or if folks feel it was merely a sacrifical lamb to appease the Anti's? Many hunters claim that "if we give them an inch - they'll take a mile." Have we ultimately paved the first step by enabling the Anti's to erode our hunting rights and privilege's in general, or have we simply caved-in to the pressure of poor kitty by using sound biological management?
