Black Hills Mountain Lion Season Opens Thursday
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — The Black Hills mountain lion season opens Thursday.
The season for the Black Hills Fire Protection District is open through March 31 unless a harvest limit of 75 mountain lions or 50 female mountain lions is reached at an earlier date.
All mountain lions harvested within the Black Hills must be presented to a Game, Fish and Parks Department representative in Rapid City or Custer State Park within 24 hours of harvest for inspection.
Residents may purchase one 2014 mountain lion hunting license. The license is also valid Jan. 1 through Dec. 31 on land that is located outside of the district.
Hunters can find updates on the harvest of mountain lions in the Black Hills online.
