Calling cougar??
« on: November 16, 2016, 09:37:58 PM »
Never thought about trying it, then going through reviews of a new e caller I bought, read one of a guy calling one in. I figure calling one would be my best chance at actually tagging one someday.

Anyone actually calling em? Any tips to get started? I'd be going at it 100℅ blind, only seen 2 cougar in my life, both by blue wood, 10-12 years ago.

A few years back I went to a seminar put on by Steve. It was fantastic. He has called in lots of cougar. The main thing he said, dont bother cold calling. Drive the roads after fresh snow to cut tracks, or get a hot tip on a recent sighting. Good Luck.

Thanks for the tip, I have an idea of where a couple hang out in the blues. I'll probably wait till snow is on the ground and go see what I can work up

Bare in mind, you become the hunted.   I watched one fail an attempt on a deer.   I was trying to find him again for photography purposes.   I called and called using one of Bearmanrics calls.   Next thing I know I had a cougar at about 6 feet ready to pounce.   No idea how they got there.   Silent killer!


also not sure how many I have called in and never have seen, only to find their tracks upon exiting the scene.

Don't shoot the one standing behind the no trespassing sign.  "It's a trap!"
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Everything is still open until end of day December 31st.  As of January 1st a bunch of units will be closing because they have met their quota.  Check the website again January 1st and you will not see open next to all of those GMU's.

Yeah, I received this email yesterday stating that most of these will be closed starting January 1st. I have seen 2 Cougar kills, walked into a Cougar and have heard about a few more in our area. I have a hard time believing WDFW's population estimates. 121 should stay open.  :bash:

 Dear Cougar Hunter:

Starting January 1, 2017, Game Management Units (GMUs) within cougar hunt areas that have reached or exceeded harvest guidelines will be closed for hunting through the remainder of the season. Those areas still open will be monitored weekly through April 30. The closed GMUs include:

    Region 1: 105, 108, 111, 117, 121, 145, 149, 154, 157, 162, 163, 166, 175, 178,
    Region 2: No GMU closures
    Region 3: 352, 356, 360, 364, 368
    Region 4: No GMU closures
    Region 5: 574, 578
    Region 6: 667

Additional GMUs may close before the cougar late season ends on April 30 if these areas meet or exceed the harvest guideline. Hunters can check WDFW's website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/cougar/ or call the cougar hunting hotline at 1-866-364-4868 to learn which areas of the state remain open.
In a civilized and cultivated country, wild animals only continue to exist at all when preserved by sportsmen.

Here is a recent Email from WDFW:


Dear Cougar Hunter:
Starting January 1, 2017, Game Management Units (GMUs) within cougar hunt areas that have reached or exceeded harvest guidelines will be closed for hunting through the remainder of the season. Those areas still open will be monitored weekly through April 30. The closed GMUs include:
   Region 1: 105, 108, 111, 117, 121, 145, 149, 154, 157, 162, 163, 166, 175, 178,
   Region 2: No GMU closures
   Region 3: 352, 356, 360, 364, 368
   Region 4: No GMU closures
   Region 5: 574, 578
   Region 6: 667
Additional GMUs may close before the cougar late season ends on April 30 if these areas meet or exceed the harvest guideline. Hunters can check WDFW's website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/hunting/cougar/ or call the cougar hunting hotline at 1-866-364-4868 to learn which areas of the state remain open.
It is the responsibility of each cougar hunter to verify if the late cougar hunting season is open or closed in the GMUs with a harvest guideline. The website and hotline will be updated weekly beginning January 1. Check area openings and closures before setting out on your hunting trip to ensure you are in compliance with current harvest guideline laws.
All cougars killed by licensed hunters during early and late cougar hunting seasons, as well as those seasons authorized under WAC 232-12-243, shall be counted toward the harvest guideline.
As a reminder, a 2017 cougar license is required to hunt cougar in April 2017. Those who wish to hunt cougar during the month of April will need to purchase a 2017 license and tag.
If you harvest a cougar, you must report the kill over the cougar hotline within 72 hours of harvest. Kills must be sealed by WDFW within five days (unfrozen) of harvest. Contact a WDFW office to schedule a sealing.
Sincerely,
Wildlife Program
WDFW

Worst part is their harvest guidelines come from a study done at wsu which recommended 12% of the population harvested to keep below carry capacity. If you go off wdfw's estimated population then most areas quotas are 4% of estimated pop. :bash:

Crazy part is that when you could run hounds the quota for 105 was 20 total with no more 7 females . I think that's what I remember. Now the quota is 2 of any combination. Those numbers  (20) were reached every year.

So how can there be less now nobody is pestering them.

I always thought the NE/SE closures were kinda questionable.... Now I own property in NE and I hunt deer every year in SE... now I KNOW the early closures there are completely lame brained!!! Plain and simple. No reason whatsoever to close off these regions for Lions. There are WAY more there than anywhere else in the state. It's just an ongoing attempt to manage hunters out of the loop. Status quo for WDFW.

Cougar season is open year 'round here in Arizona. I've seen 2 so far in 4 months, one being yesterday 1/2 mile from my house, crossing the road right next to the freeway.
I could care less about what anybody says..............
