No license for Mountain lions in New Mexico -
posted 4 years ago
Boy I messed up yea it's a prime example of a rancher buying a politician for a favor to be able to kill more than one per hunt. I believe that's what it boils down to.
Having an open season on Mountain Lion's is an open season to extinction. Your going to have any Tom Dick or Harry out there hunting them and making it fun instead of a serious hunt which many would love to do as a sport. It's also cutting into the wildlife research funds which hunting fees help pay for. The only reason it was brought up is most likely a rancher friend or friends asked for a favor to make it legal to do so they when they are out with their cattle at anytime if they see one out of season they can shoot it without getting in trouble. I guess Lions hunting licence must be expensive or they have alot of hands working for them. Don't let it happen! I wonder what was promised in this deal.
