(Jackson, Wyo.) – Mountain lion hunters take note: Hunt Area 29 closed Friday, January 24, because the annual mortality quota of six lions was reached.

Hunt Area 29 is south of Jackson and generally includes the Hoback River drainage with the southern Gros Ventre mountains and northern Wyoming Range. It also includes the Snake River Range south to the Snake River Canyon.

This hunt area will not reopen until next season. Mountain lion hunters are reminded to check the status of their hunt area by calling (800) 264-1280.
