Trappers can check in bobcat in Grangeville to meet the mandatory bobcat tagging requirement on Feb. 13 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. This will be in conjunction with the big game open house meeting.
All carcasses and pelts must be thawed out prior to tagging. A fee of $2 will be charged for each pelt, and an additional $1.75 vendor fee will be charged to each license holder.
Beginning on July 1, 2018, every trapper who purchased their first trapping license after June 30, 2011 will be required to attend and pass a mandatory trapper education course before they can purchase an Idaho trapping license.
Trappers that have successfully passed and are certified through the Idaho voluntary trapper education course are exempt, but new trappers will be required to take the course starting in 2018. People who have taken only a wolf trapping education course are not exempt and must take the Idaho trapper education course.
