mt. lions are a warm fuzzy for the velcor wearing save the planet group not reconizing they are a very efficient predator.
A long time ago, talking to a arizona game & fish officer about california and it's policy of lions. Ariz does get visits from california game and fish guys, seminars, and so on. It was the common concensus between the calif guys and arizona guys it was only a matter of time when lions started munching fluffy the poodle and people, which is happening from time to time here and there. Not to long ago a young lion was treed at a golf course in prescott, darted, then killed. A huge outcry from california transplants about killing the poor kitty.
Now a few years ago i attended a arizona game and fish meeting where they were discussing lions. Much changed these days from the old days on how you can take them. BUT i still can get a tag for about 14bucks which is good for a year which allows me to pop a kitty. But i am not allowed to shoot a kitty with cubs or a lactating female. Asked az game and fish about this on how you can tell she is lactating at 100yards. He laughed and said 'HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED IN ARIZONA?" He said carry a shovel and if an error was made, the worms got to eat too.
We have had a number of incidents in recent years within arizona between humans and the big cats. I am pretty sure there are several big toms living in the city limits of prescott. But the response would be different here if confronted by one. Excepting if you were a transplant from another area.
I remember coming accross a guy up near williams a couple of years ago in his cute little helmet, pants etc riding a mt bike in prime lion country. Told him he ought to rethink that, he looked kind of like a slow moving deer. Don't think he understood, and he was unarmed.

I know it must be hell on you having to watch a place you know and love go to the devil because of outside forces you have no control over whipping up on the good folks.

I hope you all can change it but I don't think the odds are good in your favor.


I have went to california since the 50's, and it was a wonderful place. Not so much any more. Those urban populations centers control the state. In the outlying areas it's God's country, filled with a lot of nice folks. That are always under the gun from the wingnuts in the big cities. I tell people it is a combination of too much dope for too many years, and floride in the water.

California looks at all of us who live here as her subjects and believes that what ever is illegal here is illegal for us to do anywhere, sort of the way the Fed feels about you earning money outside America or using drugs. O maybe it isnt only CA.

"Mountain lion hunting in California was first banned by Gov. Ronald Reagan in 1972 in five-year increments."


Interesting factoid!

Anybody know what the population of lions in Cali was in 1972?

It's not like it's not a VERY clear warning.


Anyone can call

Contact Gov. Brown 916-445-2841 and tell him you support Commissioner Richards.

Contact the California Fish & Game Commission 916-653-4899 and support Commissioner Richards.



I just called the governor of CA, the CA Fish and Game Commission, my state senator, and my state assemblymen, and gave them my support of Dan Richards legally hunting mt lion in Id. If they were democrats, which all were except my assemblyman, they got a real earfull of my disgust with them.

This uproar really pissed me off....badly.

I love where I live and the hunting and fishing that I'm so fortunate to have at my doorstep.

When I read those comments, and they are in every major newspaper in this state, my blood just boils.
I could truly throw in the goddamn towel right now, this whole debacle just makes me sick to my stomach.
I'm getting a serious desire to dump this place ASAP., only it ain't that easy.
I'll have enough time on the books in August to retire.
My wife is just so attached to family here that I'm not sure I could convince her to leave.
One of my best friends moved to Western Montana a few years ago and urges me to go.
He is a hunting & trapping fool that most here couldn't compete with, so he tells me that even though I'm a Californian I'd fit in too.
I apologize to all those that have been right about this place all along.
I'll be trying to cling to my roots until the time is right.

You are a bunch of good folks and I hope I can be welcome as a neighbor some day.





Stand and fight, leaving does nothing as they will be everywhere eventually, and frankly already are, just in different numbers.
