Hunters in the South Dakota's Black Hills are reporting a slow start to the season.
As of Friday, 10 mountain lions had been killed, which is about half as many compared to a typical season.
Hunters say lack of fresh snow in the region makes it more difficult to track the big cats.
Hunting seasons began in 2005 to control South Dakota's western +lion+ population, reduce the impact on deer and elk, and address public safety concerns.
The season will run until March 31, or until 76 lions or 50 females are killed.
