Hello,I was wondering if anyone knew the Law on picking up Road Killed Furbearers in Pennsylvania. I heard there was a Law that made it legal to pick them up. I still dont want to take chances and can't seem to find the Law online. I know of a Bobcat that was hit this morning and in perfect shape. I would hate to see him just Rot away,but in no way shape or form want to possess it if theres a required permit,etc. Thanks in advance !!

To pick up roadkill out of season you need to contact a game warden as soon as you can after picking it up, and there is a 100 dollar permit. Im not real sure on how it would be with a bobcat in season since the limit is one, but I believe you can pick up fox and coons in season no problem if you have a furtakers license. But I would not mess with it out of season if you dont want to pay the permit fee.

the permit fee i think is at the discretion of the officer you deal with they bring me roadkill sometimes that are in good shape.  I don't even pay $100 for bears.  But maybe it is just the fellows that I deal with.

Thanks Guys!!! I decided to pass on this Bobcat. It wasnt worth the risk.I figured the PGC would want some Money...lol and wasnt going to pay for a road kill. Its a shame that a Large Tom is gona rot.I guess I'll just Buy a Hunting Permit and try and get one myself.   ;)

should have called the PGC to find out. if the permit was to expensive maybe they could have used a nice large bobcat for educational purposes and a local taxidermist might have gotten the job of mounting it for them.

shame that it went to waste. might have been spoiled already anyway, i hear they go pretty quick.

Your right, I should have done that and don't know what I was thinking. I should have taken Pictures too and  didnt.  ::)
This cat was warm when found,but we have cool weather. The only thing I could see wrong is he had a broken front leg. I most likley will think about this for a long time and kick my own rear...lol

The game commission has a a price list for most road kill. It is illegal otherwise even if you have a PA hunting license etc. to hunt that animal. It's listed in the game laws. I believe you need to call within 24 hours of PU. You'll kick yourself on that one!
