I buy a Mountain Lion tag every year. I buy it usually in June because it would be good for one year. The Regs. has changed the Season Dates. Some Units are from Sept 1 2007 until May 31 2008. Archery-Only also changed some of the Dates as well. So check the Regulations to be sure what Units can be hunted with Date changes. Now for me, I buy a LoinTag for just in case.... I never saw a Lion out there yet and I don't make it a point to hunt them. I guess it's more of a wish and a support thing. Does any one make it thier regular hunt at lest once a year? .
