Prohibited Devices/Tagging Requirement


... (3) Tagging Bobcat/Otter Pelts - Persons taking bobcat and otter must have the fur
or pelts tagged by representatives of the Division of Wildlife and Freshwater
Fisheries within 14 days of taking and before the fur or pelt is sold or otherwise
disposed of.

(a) However, a licensed fur catcher may sell untagged bobcat and otter to an
authorized resident fur dealer and leave a completed signed fur tag report
with said dealer. The dealer must then have the bobcat and otter tagged by
a representative of the Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries within
14 days of purchasing bobcat or otter pelts.

(b) Legally acquired bobcat and otter pelts or carcasses may be delivered
untagged to a resident taxidermist for mounting if the owner leaves a
completed, signed fur tag report with said taxidermist. The taxidermist must
then have the bobcat and otter tagged by a representative of the Division of
Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries within 14 days of taking delivery of said
pelts and transmit the completed fur tag report to the Division of Wildlife
and Freshwater Fisheries representative at the time the pelt or carcass is
tagged.

(c) Tags may be removed from bobcat and otter pelts when processed by a
taxidermist for mounting. However, the removed tag must remain with the
mounted specimen when it is returned to its owner and until the mount and
pelt are destroyed.

(d) It shall be unlawful for anyone to ship, transport, or export bobcat and otter
pelts from this state unless said bobcat and otter pelts are tagged by a
representative of the Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.

(e) All bobcat and otter pelts shipped or imported into this state must be
officially tagged by the state of origin.
