MADISON, Wis. — Hunters and trappers will get a chance to go after bobcats in southern Wisconsin this fall.

The state Department of Natural Resources already offers a bobcat season in northern Wisconsin. This fall the agency will run a season south of Highway 64. Both seasons will run concurrently in two parts, from Oct. 18 to Dec. 25 and Dec. 26 to Jan. 31.

Permit applications for the southern region are due Aug. 1. Applicants will have to note which region they want to hunt or trap in as well as what time period. Permits will be awarded through a lottery.
