HB 3399 - Now the Bobcat Prohibition Bill

HB 3399 - Now Bobcat Prohibition Bill


Representative Joe Sosnowski (R)
Filed: HB 3399 on 2/9/17

HB 3399 was originally filed as a crossbow hunting bill.  It went over to the Senate where the Senate attached an amendment to change the entire bill to become the Bobcat Prohibition Bill. This now moves on to the House where they will either concur (agree) to the Senate Amendment or non-concur (disagree) with the Senate Amendment. 

Updated Language with Senate Amendment:

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Wildlife Code. Provides that it shall be unlawful for any person to hunt or trap bobcat in this State on and after the effective date of the bill in the counties of Boone, Bureau, Champaign, Cook, DeKalb, DeWitt, DuPage, Ford, Grundy, Henry, Iroquois, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Knox, Lake, LaSalle, Lee, Livingston, Logan, Marshall, McHenry, McLean, Ogle, Peoria, Piatt, Putnam, Stark, Stephenson, Vermilion, Will, Winnebago, Woodford, and north of U.S. Route 36 in Edgar and Douglas and north of U.S. Route 36 to the junction with Illinois Route 121 and north or east of Illinois Route 121 in Macon.

Provides that for the season beginning in 2018, a total number of 375 bobcats may be hunted or trapped lawfully, or the conclusion of the season occurs, whichever is earlier. Provides for a sunset of this provision on June 30, 2019. Effective July 1, 2017.
