IDFG Bobcat Pelt Tagging Deadline - March 10th

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) reminds hunters and trappers of the March 10th deadline for mandatory tagging of bobcat pelts. Sportsmen can take their pelts to any IDFG regional office, the McCall office or an official check-point to obtain the appropriate tags and complete a harvest report. A check-point is scheduled for Grangeville on Tuesday, March 6th from 5 to 8 p.m., at the Oddfellow Hall located at 825 Cunningham. Pelts can also be taken to the IDFG Clearwater Region office in Lewiston, 1540 Warner, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The lower jaws of the bobcats are not being requested this year. However, the carcasses must be thawed out prior to tagging. A fee of $2.00 will be charged for each pelt, and an additional $1.50 vendor fee will be charged to each license holder. Sportsmen can save money by checking all their pelts in at one time, as the vendor fee of $1.50 applies whether one pelt or ten are checked in.
