Hunters have a new 100-lion quota under the mountain lion season that opened Dec. 26, the Black Hills Pioneer reports.
The state Game Fish and Parks Department opened lion hunting outside of the Black Hills to all residents rather than just landowners. That season runs year-round, while the limited Black Hills season is in its seventh year.
In 2012 more than 3,400 people bought lion tags.
