Cities Tags are only needed if an animal such as a bobcat is intended to be transported out of state..If you use an in state taxidermist and keep the bobcat at your home you need no CITIES tags...If you go hunting in say VA or WV deerhunting and you see a bobcat and shoot it which they are common down there before you leave VA or WV you are required to contact a conservation officer down there and they will place a CITIES tag on the bobcat...It is then legal to transport out of state...

Pennsylvania — TITLE 58. RECREATION — PART III. GAME COMMISSION — CHAPTER 147. SPECIAL PERMITS — Subchapter S. FURBEARER HUNTING-TRAPPING PERMITS

Sec. § 147.701. General.




(iii) [A permanent tag for a bobcat or fisher taken under this permit shall be provided by the Commission and locked immediately upon receipt of the tag. The permanent tag must be locked through the eyes of the pelt if it is to be exported beyond this Commonwealth. The tag must remain attached to the animal until it is mounted, tanned, made into a commercial fur or prepared for consumption.] A CITES tag for a bobcat taken under this permit will be provided by the Commission in the event that the bobcat or any parts thereof are exported internationally or upon request of the permittee. The CITES tag shall immediately be locked through the eyes of the pelt or, in the event of any other part, locked through and attached to the part. The CITES tag must remain attached to the animal until it is mounted, tanned, made into a commercial fur or prepared for consumption.

Looks like you only need the CITES tag if shipping internationally. I'd call the PGC to get an answer.

Casey is correct, none needed for Fisher and it is on page 75 of digest.
joeyfont's post is old, and just to avoid further confusion the one below is from PGC website.
