This Online Electronic Licensing System provides for the sale of most licenses, permits and stamps. Your purchase is not complete until you have paid for the selected products by credit card and have received a receipt. Once the purchase is complete, you may return at any time to make another purchase. All sales are final.
The season typically runs from September through March, although some hunt areas run longer. There is no limit to the number of licenses sold, but a hunter can only harvest one mountain lion during any calendar year. However, since the season overlaps calendar years, hunters need to remember to purchase a new license each year.
Hunter harvest within individual hunt areas is regulated through a mortality limit. If the limit is reached, the season closes. It is the hunter's responsibility to determine if an area is still open prior to hunting by calling the mountain lion area mortality quota hotline at (800) 264-1280.
Once a mountain lion is harvested, the license holder must present the unfrozen pelt and skull within 72 hours to a local warden or biologist or at any of the WGFD offices during normal business hours for registration and the collection of two premolar teeth.
