YOU CAN HUNT BOBCATS…BUT YOU CAN’T SELL THEIR FUR UNDER LEGISLATION PENDING IN THE ILLINOIS SENATE.

 

BOBCAT HUNTING WAS RECENTLY LEGALIZED IN ILLINOIS…AND THIS LEGISLATION PROHIBITS THE SALE OR PURCHASE OF THEIR PELTS. MIKE STEVENS WITH THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES SAYS THEY ARE AGAINST THE BAN.

 

 

THE RETURN OF BOBCAT HUNTING HAS PROMPTED THE BILL FROM SENATOR DON HARMON OF OAK PARK. IT MAKES IT ILLEGAL TO SELL OR BUY BOBCAT PELTS IN ILLINOIS…AND ALSO BANS THE USE OF TRAPS TO CATCH THE ANIMAL.

 

 

THE MEASURE PASSED A LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE AND WILL BE HEARD NEXT BEFORE THE FULL SENATE.
