Mountain Lion Hunt Protesters Draw Licenses

It appears that hunting foes are taking protesting to a new level regarding mountain lion hunting in South Dakota. According to The Daily Republic 11 people that publicly testified against mountain lion hunting applied for a limited mountain lion hunt in Custer State Park for which only 10 licenses were available. Two of the ten licenses were drawn by the protesters.

GF&P Secretary Jeff Vonk said all 10 of the people who drew the Custer licenses showed up for the mandatory orientation meeting. “What we don’t know is if they’re hunting. They all picked up their license,” Vonk said. The Custer State Park season is running simultaneously with the general statewide season for hunting mountain lions. Hunters normally focus on the Black Hills.

South Dakota Bow Hunter Takes Mountain Lion

The Rapid City Journal has a lengthy write up on the bowhunting prowess of Sean Fulton a native of Rapid City. Successfully hunting mountain lion is hard, calling one in is even harder, and calling one into bow range and then completing the shot is downright amazing.

In two years of preparation preceding the hunt, Fulton amassed more information on mountain lion habits than he thought possible. During the 2010 season, he spent 30 days tracking, often from before dawn until dark, without taking a lion. Through extensive preparation prior to this season, including tracking for signs or kills and even setting up camera surveillance, Fulton found and learned to concentrate on core areas well known to be inhabited by lions.

South Dakota Wants to Increase Mountain Lion Limit

State Biologists have sent in their proposal to increase the limit for mountain lions next year in South Dakota. The numbers of elk and deer have been declining, and they think the cause is directly related to the mountain lion population.

This year the quota was 45 mountain lions, with no more than 30 of those being female. The proposal for next year would be 60 with no more than 40 being female. The season would run from January 1st- March 31st, and this year Custer State Park would be included in the total number of lions instead of having an additional quota. Also Custer Park would allow more hunters at a time.

There is opposition to the increased limit. Custer veterinarian Sharon Seneczko, president of the Black Hills Mountain Lion Foundation agrees with some parts of the proposal. She does not believe that increasing the quota is a good idea though. As the state has increased the number for the past years, and the mountain lion population may already be declining. She believes the state is using the mountain lion population as a scapegoat for the deer/elk decline. The mountain lion is a natural predator and helps keep the populations moving, it is part of a natural ecosystem. There were 30 elk collared, 14 of those have been killed by predators and 13 of those are confirmed lion kills.

"We have individuals who believe every mountain lion should be shot on sight," Leif said. "On the other end of the spectrum are those individuals who believe we should never hunt o...
