We have a season here in South Dakota, but I have never done it.

I buy a tag every year, but never hunt them. It's more of a "just in case" type thing for me. I have seen several big cats over the years but have never shot at one.

How expensive is the tag?

Buy a tag every year.
If I don't get one by chance while hunting other species or calling I get one with my buddy and his dogs.

Yes, we have a full body mount of a 180 tom we killed 4 years ago. I highly recommend using dogs, as will most cat hunters. The tags here in WY are not that expensive, unless you are out-of-state.

Dogs are the only way to effectively hunt cats. We have seen a cat twice at our place, but its pure chance. Hounds are the only way.

Shoot, all I have to do is to put my dogs out to poop in the fenced in area in the backyard and a yote or a mountain lion will come by to scope things out.

Do people really have to go looking for them?

Here in Oregon we are no longer allowed to use dogs to hunt cougar or bear. It's a bunch of horseshit really, but it has had two effects.

one, the cougar popluation is booming, and as the adult males command a territory of over 100 square miles, it is pushing them in closer to urban areas and causing a lot of competition for food.

two, the population increase and the competition for the same food source has seemed to make them much more eager to come to a call. They usually take their time and come in slow and quiet, so never call alone. Have a buddy to watch your six or you might miss one.

I had hounds for years. Turned out on several lions and tree too few.
I had a great time, have a rug, and pix to remember.
Do it, it's well worth the effort.
