First mountain lion kill in KOTA Territory

Posted:

Mountain lion hunting season opened December 26, and the first kill was made December 27. 

The female lion weighed just under 90 pounds. The season goes until March 31, or until a quota of 75 total lions, or 50 females, is reached. Whichever one of those scenarios comes first.

 All killed lions must be presented to a Game, Fish & Parks representative for inspection within 24 hours of the harvest. Check this webiste daily to see how many lions have been killed:

Of course to hunt, you need gear.

John Quiggle, Cabela's employee, says sales for mountain lion hunting equipment are slowly rising, as the season just began.

The store offers 'predator hunting' products, including calls, scents, fake rabbits, squirrels, and racoons.

Quiggle says it's important to hunt mountain lions to keep down their population.
