Idaho's mountain lion hunting season is ten months long and hunters can purchase multiple tags in a single year. In 2014 alone, 464 lions were harvested in Idaho. In some regions, electronic calls can be used to aid in the success of the hunt. Nonresidents hunting deer or elk in Idaho, can apply those tags to mountain lion takes. Additionally, Idaho's lax hound hunting regulations produce high annual mountain lion takes. There is no limit on the number of hound hunting permits residents may receive and hounds may lawfully harass, attack and even kill mountain lions during open season.
