    Never been lion hunting. There is a good population of cats down in the Snowy Range by Laramie. I saw one on the back of a truck Thursday.

    The Snowy Range is all national forest. I don't know when mountain lion season runs. There is a lot of snowmobiling that happens here.

    I would assume you are talking about west of Laramie? Highway 130 is the line between unit 31 and 7 which is open year around.

    Yes to the west of Laramie. My cousin's husband has a friend who runs dogs over by Encampment which would be area 9, they have pretty good luck. The only problem with area 9 is the ridiculous non-resident wilderness rule.

    If I'm looking correctly the Huston park wilderness area looks pretty small. Do they have a lot of snow now?

    We just got back from hunting in unit 7. I was the first time we ever did it. We were out there 1/18/14. the one thing I would tell you is get the Wyoming chip for your gps and a map with all the Blm and state forest on it. We got out there and at 8000 ft there was over 6 feet of snow in the trees the lower land had all the animal down with little snow on it but the snow blows so hard and melts down lower that it's hard to find tracks. We got lucky and had one day of snow and it wasn't windy the next day. So we treed one lion was the coolest thing I've ever done. Now I'm hooked looking a cat dogs to run bobcat in MN with and keep going out there to do that again. If you go out there interested in how your hunt went.
