If any of you guys get a cat tag and need help filling it, let me know, I helped a game warden trap his first cat,it was a kitten about 10 lbs so we did a live release. He was happy and said that it was to small. Took pics of him and the cat before release. Told him to get as close as possible without getting ripped opened. We can work on calling in a cat for you. Since this suject was first posted, it now takes about 4 years to get a tag. And there is talk that in the near future it will take 6 or more years.

Yes,it takes 4-5 years to get a tag,might be less if they open a season south of 64,they'll be doing a bobcat population study this winter I believe in the whole state to get an idea of population densities,hopefully the funding will be there.Opening a larger area could get us more tags.The deadline for tag applications is Aug.1st.and lucky winners will usually get there tags in the first week of Oct.

One word of caution,remember filling someone elses tag is in violation of the law.That's on of the reasons we are having trouble waiting so long to get a tag.When people fill other peoples tags it messes with the success ratio ,more success rates for a low population of critters will knock down the amount of tags available for next year,it's all about balance.So keep it honest guys.

Here's a news topic you guys might be interested in that includes some data on Wisconsin Bobcat. It also includes some bobcat population densities and harvest estimates.

Hopefully we'll get a wolf season in the future.The population they state is probably low balling.Talked to a few in the DNR and APHIS,and the population is probably double that.

Didn't know Wis had a Bobcat season. Lived in your beautiful state for 30 + years and never saw one, but I lived in the SW corner

I got a tag back in 09 and it took five years to get it.
That was the first year we applied for mule deer along with the usual antelope hunt in WY. Season started later in Oct, along with waiting for my son's friend to finish AIT( after boot camp) so the three of us could head out west.
So we headed to WY when cat season opened here. Didn't get to hunt much for cats and didn't call anything in when we did hunt.
My in laws neighbor in Pearson had a huge cat on his deck looking at his house cat the year before but I couldn't get a hold of him to hunt his land. :cry:
I have not bothered to apply for a tag since then. I also didn't get a deer license this year either. After hunting in WY I found out how you can be treated like a hunter and not a criminal (by the dnr) and decided to just hunt yotes here and save my money.
God, in his wisdom, When creating women, made a promise to men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world. And then He smiled and made the earth round.
