The hunting of all mountain lions in southwestern Montana hunting district 311, which includes portions of Madison, Gallatin, Jefferson and Broadwater counties, will close at one-half hour after sunset on Friday, October 26, 2012.
The order halting the hunt came shortly after Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks officials received word that the pre-established harvest quota for lions in the district had been met.
This hunting district will re-open for the hunting of all mountain lion for the winter season beginning December 1, 2012.
