Beaver, Fox, Mink, Muskrat, et al hunters: More bobcat hunting OK'ed.
Though the bear and wolf hunters will not like the precedent set through the DNR's shocking embrace of egghead "research" cited in the agency's bobcat hunting expansion.
Wisconsin will offer a southern zone bobcat hunting and trapping season beginning in fall 2014. State wildlife officials say the creation of a southern management zone will make new opportunities available for people to hunt and trap bobcats.
The southern management zone, which includes all of Wisconsin south of Highway 64, is the result of recent research regarding bobcat population density and habitat use in central Wisconsin conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
