With the taking of the 13th female mountain lion Monday, the South Dakota Game Fish and Parks are reminding hunters to check the season status before going out to the field.

"We are approaching the 15 female lion harvest limit," said John Kanta, Regional Game Manager for the GFP. "Once we harvest 15 female lions the season will end. It's important that hunters call our toll free information number and check the website."

When the mountain lion season ends, landowners with a license can continue to hunt mountain lions on their own land outside the Black Hills Fire Protection District for the remainder of the year.

The mountain lion season status can be accessed by calling (866) 895-9067 or on the web at
