Black Hills hunters are closing in on the bag limit set for mountain lions in 2010.

The Game, Fish and Parks Department says 30 lions -- 19 females and 11 males -- were taken as of Sunday. The most recent was a female taken Saturday southeast of Spearfish.

The season began Jan. 1 and runs through March but will end early when 25 female lions or a combination of 40 male and female lions are killed.
