Of the nine mountain lions harvested, six are females, according to the informational hotline of the state Department of Game, Fish & Parks.

The season will end March 31, or sooner if 25 female mountain lions or 40 total lions are killed.

Hunters must report their kills within 24 hours at 394-2391, or call state radio at night and on weekends at 393-8121.

    I don’t hunt, haven’t in years. If I still did, I would have one rule of thumb.

    If you’re hunting predators, particularity near the top of the food chain, you probably shouldn’t be.

    One man’s humble option.
