BISMARCK (AP) - Bobcat season is under way in North Dakota, with prime pelts sometimes fetching more than $350.
The Bismarck Tribune reports that the cat has been one of the state's most economically significant furbearers. They're twice the size of mountain lions.
Bobcats can only be harvested south and west of the Missouri River. Hunters must either trap or shoot them, whereas mountain lions can only be legally killed with guns.
Bobcat season runs through March 15. All pelts must be turned in within two weeks of the end of the season.
