Anyone know offhand what they cost and when the season is? Waiting 3 yrs in WIsconi is tough.

Cooter Do you own land where you intend to trap? Check the synopsis page 22 paragraph 3 and 4...

If you do then they require you to purchase the

Furbearer hunting license is$160 required for coon and bobcat

The trapping license is another $73

The Small game is $84.50

Associated Press Story

LA CROSSE, Wis. — Two boys trapping on their family's land near Fountain City in western Wisconsin snared a surprise: two bobcats in four days.

Although bobcats are most often found in northern Wisconsin, sightings elsewhere have become more frequent in the past four years, said Kris Johansen, the Department of Natural Resources' wildlife biologist for Buffalo and Trempealeau counties.

David Domine, 14, first thought he had a rabbit when he and his brother Joey checked their traps on Nov. 12. Then he realized it was a 10- to 15-pound bobcat.

The boys' father, Wes Domine, called a local game warden, who brought Johansen out to help free the yearling cat.

The next day, Johansen told Wes Domine that they should have collected DNA for an ongoing bobcat study.

They got a second chance on Nov. 15 when Wes Domine checked the traps and found a full-grown bobcat. They took DNA samples and freed it.

David and Joey Domine took in their traps for the deer hunting season. Wes Domine said they hope to get a coyote when they put them back out in a week or so.

"Hopefully no more bobcats,'' he said. "We'd be happy just to let them be.''

Cooter,

What is the three year wait all about? Some strange Wisconsin regulation?

Just like bear, more demand than supply so you need pref points to get a tag. Been about 3 years wait the past few years.

Interesting. They allow 5 cats each in MN with no limit on the number of hunters/trappers. Wouldn't think the population levels would be that different.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
