Salt Lake City, Utah - At their Aug. 28 meeting, members of the Utah Wildlife Board approved a recommendation to allow an individual hunter or trapper to obtain up to six bobcat permits.

During the 2013–2014 season, each trapper or hunter could not obtain more than three bobcat permits. Also, during the 2013–2014 season, not more than 4,600 hunters and trappers were allowed to participate. This season, there's no limit on the number of hunters and trappers who can purchase up to six permits each.

Board members also approved cougar hunting rules at the meeting. The rules that were approved should result in hunters taking about the same number of cougars this season as were taken in Utah during the 2013–2014 season.
