Des Moines, IA – The bobcat quota has filled and the season is closed as of 11 a.m., Monday. 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 midnight Nov. 29.
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.
