The Black Hills mountain lion season closed with better numbers than last year… if you’re a cat. The Black Hills Pioneer reports that hunters bagged 43 mountain lions (22 female, 21 male) in the Black Hills during the three-month season that closed March 31. That’s down ten from last year and well shy of the 75-lion/50-female quota. Game Fish & Parks offers a full list of mountain lions killed here.
What are you thinking, cats? Mountain lion season remains open outside the Hills year-round. Get back to Rochford!
