Hunting Season

Given their smaller range sizes, two or more females may reside within a male's home range.

The home range is marked with feces, urine scent, and by clawing prominent trees in the area.

Males patrol a large home range which often overlaps a number of smaller female territories but the two will not interact until the breeding season which begins in the winter.
