BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Mountain lion hunting during the late season in North Dakota’s Zone 1 has been closed, with the killing of a seventh cat filling the quota.

The state Game and Fish Department says a conditional season in Zone 1 will open Tuesday for hunters to pursue the five lions that weren’t taken during the early season.

The conditional season closes March 31 or once five cats are killed. Early season regulations apply, so hunters are not allowed to use dogs. Hunters who harvested a lion during the early or late seasons are not eligible to participate.

Zone 1 roughly encompasses the southwest and west central parts of the state. There is no quota in Zone 2, the rest of the state. Lion hunting there is open through the end of March.
