The Game and Parks Commission closed the hunting season in the South Subunit of the Pine Ridge after four mountain lions were taken. Hunters took one female and three males. Game and Parks posted the decision to close the session on its webpage. Hunters are required to check the website or call the toll-free number before hunting mountain lions.
The hunting season in the North Subunit of the Pine Ridge remains open to hunters who have permits. No mountain lions have been taken there. The hunting season in the North Subunit will close when hunters take a total of four mountain lions or two females, whichever comes first.
