Low cougar harvest in South Dakota has some suggesting longer season

As the title of the article suggests, there are some in South Dakota who may advocate for a full-length cougar hunting season in the future as it grows increasingly unlikely that the quota will be met before the March 31 closing date. The fact that the quota has not been met for the last few years (and looks unlikely to be met again this year), however, may suggest that the Black Hills population isn’t as robust as some say it is.
