They will be dropping pups starting about now.  If you kill a nursing female, try to find the den and put down the litter humanely.  Otherwise they will just starve to death.

The hides are best in the winter. The pups are easy kills in August when they're out of the den and stupid still. They should be paired up now for possible doubles. Takes 61 days I think until they have pups. I personally don't fool with them much when the females are pregnant but mostly it's because I'm hunting for the hides in addition to pest control.

I dont do it for the pelts. I do it to to kill time until bear kicks off.

Saw one yesterday, just a wore out fur streak until it was well out of sight.  Lots of kill them all pressure here, seldom see them standing still.
