Sept. 26 is draw deadline for New Brunswick bobcat tags

Published Monday September 22nd, 2008
 
New Brunswick residents interested in trapping bobcat have until 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 26, to enter the draw for bobcat tags.
 
Application cards and fact sheets are available at all Service New Brunswick and
 
Department of Natural Resources offices. Information concerning the draw is also available online.
 
Applicants must purchase a 2008-09 fur harvester’s licence before entering the draw. Wildlife management zones 1 through 6, 9, 26 and 27 do not have tags available for bobcat.
 
The computerized draw will take place in late October, and successful applicants will be notified by mail.
 
The bobcat-tag quota system is designed for conservation purposes, helping New Brunswick meet international management obligations, and to provide an opportunity for New Brunswickers to harvest the surplus of bobcat that would normally die from starvation and vehicle collisions.
