        That's weird. It says in there that the state asked for public opinion on lion regs. Did anyone here get asked about it? I never did. Neither did anyone I know. Strange.

          All it did was open the door for more regulations. Nobody was running penned lion hunts and I'd imagine most traps are getting checked that often anyway.

            I would like to know where all these canned lion hunts in Texas are located. Maybe I can go on one before they start enforcing this law.

                    My buddy runs lion hunts on their family property in New Mexico. Usually get 4 or 5 a year, and he says it really is his favorite game to eat. I was surprised but he definitely enjoys it.

                      Maybe outlawing canned deer hunts are next. Camels nose is under the tent. Expect more regulations to come. And eventually no shooting mountain lions.
