ODFW: Cougar hunting closed in much of state


The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said Tuesday that cougar hunting is now closed through Dec. 31 in Zone A (Coast/North Cascades), which includes the entire Oregon Coast and much of northwest Oregon (see Zone Status and map).

Total mortality in the Zone has reached the quota of 180, a number which includes all cougars killed by hunters or due to damage and public safety issues, officials said.

While hunting is now closed, landowners experiencing damage or public safety issues may continue to take cougars in Zone A.

Cougar hunting in Zone A will reopen on Jan. 1, 2019.
