NOTE: With adoption of the revised Cougar Management Plan April 13, 2006, all known cougar mortalities now count toward zone quotas. To account for this shift and be consistent with population and conflict objectives adopted in the plan, the statewide cougar mortality quota increased 16% from 668 to 777 effective upon adoption. When total human caused mortality reaches the quota for a zone, hunting season will close in that zone. Oregon Cougar Management Quota Zones
