All those who hunt and trap fur-bearing animals, including those who trap or hunt on their own enclosed farmland or private property, must have a valid fur harvester license. This license allows the license-holder to hunt fox, bobcat, coyote or raccoon, and trap badger, bobcat, fisher, marten, fox, coyote, weasel, mink, raccoon, muskrat, beaver, otter, skunk or opossum.
Hunting bobcats also requires a free kill tag, available from license agents or by contacting any DNR operations service center.
Those 17 years of age and older must possess a valid fur harvester license. A junior resident fur harvester trap-only license is available to youth 10 to 16 years old without hunter safety training. Youths under 10 years old may trap fur bearers as licensed through the Mentored Youth Hunting Program.
All successful hunters must register their harvest at select DNR offices. If harvested in Units A, B or C, the animal must be registered on or before March 11, 2013; if harvested in Unit D, then on or before Feb. 11, 2013. Please call ahead to make sure staff is available for registering.
