G&F: Hunt Area 19 now closed

Mountain lion Hunt Area 19 closed at 8:40 p.m. on March 16, 2013. The area closed because the harvest limit of 20 mountain lions was reached.

Hunt Area 19 is roughly the northern half of the Big Horn Basin: south of the Wyoming-Montana state line, east of Yellowstone National Park, west of the Big Horn River, and north of the South Fork of Dry Creek including lands contained within the South Fork and North Fork of the Shoshone River drainages.

The hunt area will reopen for the fall season on Sept. 1, 2013.
