This time last year it seemed there were numerous areas closed.  Did the quotas get increased or not as many killed this year so far?  I havent checked.

Good News!

The DFW Cougar Hunt Area Zone Closure Hotline gonna get busy all the cats I've seen taken on the  Facebook Group "Washington State Cougar Sightings"

If you are not already on that Fb group its well worth joining.

People can post photo's and GMU's. All comments are turned off by the Moderator.

It's a weird group. Hunters post successful hunt photo's and non hunters post locations of where they got the video and time and date of the cougars on their posts.

Happy Cougar Hunting!

Not an expert or anything ,
Unless a whole bunch got shot in the past 5 days.

Early season -only 5 days to report your kill
Late season- only 72 hours or 3 day to report your kill.

That's gonna suck if some GMU close ,cause people didn't report there kills on time.
Oh well it says open now.
