You could be right maybe I'm cheap but I thought I was being frugal, I'm not sure where frugal ends and cheap begins but maybe you could inform me. If I don't have to buy a bobcat tag to kill one why would I? By law I don't need to buy a regular hunting lic. but I do to support the PGC. Between that and feeding all the wildlife I have off our crops for the last thirty years that is all the donation I wish to make.
Bobcats are hunted and trapped with a "special permit" in conjunction with a furtakers license. The exemption for farmers does not inclde special permits. Hunting elk requires an elk license but the exemption to farmers does not apply to elk as law below specifies. Sec 2706 is where farmers are exempt from needing a license.
15) Elk hunting license to persons eligible for classes of licenses in paragraphs (1), (2), (3), (7), (7.1), (8), (9) and (11.1). Notwithstanding any other provisions of this title or the regulations promulgated thereunder, elk licenses under this paragraph shall not be subject to the provisions of section 2706 (relating to resident license and fee exemptions) and 2706.1 (relating to complimentary nonresident licenses). To ensure sound management of Pennsylvania's wild elk population, the commission may promulgate regulations to establish a limited number of licenses. The commission may establish a nonrefundable application fee at a cost of $10.
