Wildlife biologists are recommending changes that could result in more chances to take bobcats in Utah this fall.

The recommendations would also result in hunters taking about the same number of cougars this season. During the 2013–2014 season, a total of 330 cougars were taken.
You can review the Division of Wildlife Resources' bobcat and cougar recommendations online.
Learn more, share your ideas
After you've reviewed the ideas online, you can let your Regional Advisory Council members know your thoughts by attending your upcoming RAC meeting or by sending an email to them.
RAC chairmen will share the input they receive with members of the Utah Wildlife Board. The board will meet in Salt Lake City on Aug. 28 to approve rules for Utah's 2014–2015 cougar and furbearer seasons.
