The mountain lion season in South Dakota stands at 39 kills with only two weeks remaining.

Hunters killed three cats last week, bringing the season's total to 39. The most noteworthy of the kills was a 134 pound male shot in Lawrence County.

The two other cats, a 92 pound male and a 91-pound female, were killed in Pennington County.

The season will conclude on March 31, unless the harvest limit of 75 total mountain lions, or 50 female lions, is reached before that date. The mountain lion season outside of the Black Hills district runs year-round.

Of the 39 mountain lions killed so far this season, 19 were female and 20 were male.
