Mountain Lion are found throughout the reservation in all habitat types. Population and distribution appears to be primarily related to the availability of food. Life expectancy is about 12 years. Mountain lions first breed at 2 1/2 years for females and about 4 years for males with a gestation of 2 months.

The Recreation and Wildlife Commission requires all successful lion hunters to report their harvest to the Department. This data is compiled annually, at the end of each calendar year. Electronic calls are illegal.

Non-Members are allowed to use their own dogs (up to 6 dogs) to hunt mountain lions. The dogs can be used for themselves, their spouse, and children ages 10 years of age to 17 years old. (No other individuals)
