DNR Considering Limited Bobcat Hunt Season

AREA WIDE — The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is proposing a limited Bobcat hunt season.

The agency took to social media last week to post answers to some frequently asked questions and provided a link for you to comment on the proposed amendment to the state’s wildlife rules.

If approved, the limited Bobcat season wouldn’t be statewide.  It will likely be limited to southern Indiana where strong, self-sustaining Bobcat populations are supported.

There would be limits to the number of bobcats each licensed hunter can trap or hunt.

DNR officials remind you these changes have NOT been finalized.  It still remains illegal to hunt Bobcats in Indiana.
