Furbearer: Harvest reporting is voluntary for most furbearer species, with bobcat and marten the most notable exception. To obtain trapping and furbearer harvest information, DWR conducts a randomized telephone survey of approximately 25 percent of total permit holders each winter. You may download a hunter harvest logbook to help you keep track of your furbearer harvest during the season.
Successful hunters are required to deliver bobcat pelts to a Division representative to have permanent tags affixed and to surrender the lower jaw. Information collected includes: date of harvest, sex of the animal, method of take and county of harvest. In addition to mandatory check-in, trapper/hunter effort information for bobcats is collected through the furbearer harvest telephone survey (above).
