you nailed it!Smtn10pt said:If the season wasn't so screwed up now I think there would be lots of guides available. I looked into getting a dog myself back when bobcat season was the entire fall fur season. I thought if I couldn't get a tag every year I would get a hound and try to take a few guys out and get them a cat. Then they changed the season to what it is now...this leaves you only a few weekends to hunt. If a guy has dogs that hunt cats he probably has enough interest from family and friends that he isn't going to take others out.
