Oh boy in Custer (SD) about 26 miles form here killed a lion on his porch Monday.
Getting bad in the Black Hills. SD is releasing tags to kill off another 100 or so. Even letting out tags to hunt mountain lions in the Custer State Park.
Still though, I think just about any normal hunting rifle will do the trick. But like anything else, from squirrels to elephants, you got to hit them in the right spot.
Nah, I don't have any qualms about my wife using her 243 Win.
