GRASSY BUTTE, N.D. – The first mountain lion of the season has been killed in North Dakota, and the method by which it was taken might also be a first.
Rick Mittleider of Tappen shot the 107-pound female Wednesday near Grassy Butte. Mittleider said he and two others were using a predator call to try to attract a cougar, and it worked.
 
“I realize calling mountain lions is like finding a needle in a haystack,” he said. “It was our second stand of the day, and we had used three or four calls … so I’m not really sure which one she responded to.”
 
Mittleider said he is an avid coyote hunter and has been hunting mountain lions since the state first opened a season on the big cats in 2005. The hunt Wednesday was Mittleider’s first of the year.
