Didn't see it either but they gave a contract number that would get you an answer.

Hope you draw this year. Passed a law a few weeks ago limiting the tags to 350 for next year.

I thought i read where it was more than that, Sure hope so lost out last year, could be wrong but i thought it was 1000 permits. They appear to be more abundant than dnr realizes.

Looks like , harvest up to 350 , probably more tags given out .
I see only 141 were harvested last season with 500 permits with over 6,000 applications.

I hope they up the number of the quota. Guys up here in Fulton county are seeing a lot more cats this year on trail cams. Some up to five at a time and pretty much over the whole county not just near the spoon river.

Want to see the number of tags go up ? When you check in a deer and they ask you if you have seen any turkey,bobcats,hogs,or coyotes ............well you dont actually have had to SEE a bobcat to SAY that you saw a couple.

No response from the initial number giving above but Ed Cross gives out his cell number 217-685-7027 or Edward.Cross @IL.gov....
I don't have time right now to call cell or e-mail as I am off to work but possibly someone on here could. Ed is the director of DNR communications.
