The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission approved a mountain lion hunting season for 2020 at its meeting Friday.

The 2020 season will run from Jan. 2 to Feb. 29 in two sub-units in the Pine Ridge area of northwestern Nebraska. Up to four mountain lions, and no more than two females, may be harvested in each sub-unit.

Hunting on public lands will be allowed in both sub-units, and shooting hours will be from sunrise to sunset.

If the harvest limits and/or sub-limits have not been reached in a sub-unit by Feb. 29, then a limited number of permittees will be allowed to hunt with the aid of dogs in an auxiliary season from March 15 to 31.

The application period for permits will be Sept. 3 to 27, 2019. Permits will be issued in each sub-unit by drawing.
