PIERRE, South Dakota — Applications are available for the 2015 South Dakota mountain lion hunting season.
The state's Game, Fish and Parks Department says there's no deadline to submit an application for the season. However, hunters who want an access permit to Custer State Park must submit their application by Dec. 10.
The season runs from Dec. 26 through March 31. The harvest limit has been set at 75 total lions or 50 female lions, whichever happens first. The season closes in the Black Hills Fire Protection Unit if either of the harvest limits is reached.
Wildlife officials say Custer State Park will have eight separate hunting intervals, four of which will allow the use of dogs. The access permits to the park are given through a lottery process.
