​2024-2025 Information​

2024 Major Changes:​​

No April Season

Since 2014, an April 1-30 lion hunting season has been​​ used as a management tool in units that meet certain criteria. April season unit status is reviewed annually and recommendations are presented and approved by the Wildlife Commission each January. April seasons were closed statewide for 2024. There are no units with an open April 1-30, 2024 season. 

Electronic Calls Removed as Legal Method of Take

Electronic calls are now prohibited for use in the taking of mountain lion in all GMUs.

Game Management Unit (GMU) Changes

GMU 43 was split to create a new GMU 431. There are boundary modifications for some GMUs.

See the Lion Regulations brochure for details on all changes and more. ​
