DNR recommended trapping changes
The DWR is also proposing to keep the bobcat permit numbers and season dates the same in 2022–23 as they were this year — allowing six permits per individual, no total permit cap, and the season running from Nov. 16, 2023 through March 1, 2024.
The proposed season dates for the other furbearer species are:
Beaver and mink: Sept. 16, 2023 to April 1, 2024
Marten, badger, gray fox, kit fox, ringtail, spotted skunk and weasel: Sept. 16, 2023 to March 1, 2024
The DWR is also recommending that a few areas be closed to beaver trapping to help facilitate some beaver introductions in the areas to help with habitat projects: Three Mile Creek (Garfield County) and Reservoir Canyon (Washington County).
