Iowa Bobcat Season Closes Friday

The bobcat season is closed as of 11 a.m., Friday, when the quota of 450 bobcats was reached. There is a grace period for trappers to report any animals to a conservation officer and receive their proper tags. The grace period officially ends at 11:59 p.m., Dec.  1.

The grace period only applies to trappers to allow time to move their traps from areas likely frequented by bobcats. Hunters are not allowed a grace period.

Bobcats trapped after the grace period must be turned over to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
