    That’s when the trapping season goes out in pa Jan 8-February 2

  • Eli's avatar

    @Matt um that's the hunting season...the trapping season goes from Dec. 16 to Jan. 7

  • Matt's avatar

    I read that wrong! January 7th it is it was the last day of the legal trapping season. My bad thanks for calling me on it to clarify

  • Matt's avatar

    @Eli January 9 is the last day for trapping just double checked again. I shouldn’t trust the first search that pops up on google that’s my bad. But thank you, I know better.

    The last time I looked it up 37lbs was the record for Missouri bobcat. Note the current record is 50lbs. 42 is still just crazy big. Congrats

  • Matt's avatar

    @Mighty thank you

  • Matt's avatar

    @Chris Thankyou!!! Y’all are awesome!
