State wildlife officials are recommending that South Dakota hunters be allowed to shoot more mountain lions next winter.
Last winter's season set a quota of 70 total mountain lions or 50 females.
The state Wildlife Division recommends that next winter's season allow a total of 100 mountain lions or 70 females to be shot. The season would run from Dec. 26 to March 31, but would end early if the quota is reached.
The state Game, Fish and Parks Commission will propose a season when it meets Thursday and Friday in Milbank. The commission will make a final decision after a public hearing in October.
Some hunters argue more lions should be shot because they kill Black Hills deer and elk. Other people contend too many cougars are being killed.
