Do you have a season on bob cats and lynx in to run with dogs in Alberta?

Only bobcats in limited WMUs. No lynx season.
Good luck hunting with dogs in the bobcat area, bald prairie with the odd hill pretty much.

Actually, down in the Milk River there are quite a few spots where you could run a cat, but its a long ways back to the treed stuff, and not really worth it for most people. The Milk River valley out that way can get quite thick in spots, but ya....MOST of the zone is bald as bald gets....lol
Bobcats don't need trees,unless my hounds are chasin them:rollin
The only places i know of them hanging out in the area is flat with very sparse bush land around the lake. My buddies fish walleye in there all summer and usually see 3-4 a season (compare to probably 50 foxes, 100+ coyotes over the same time frame) The only one i've seen in person was in the Crowsnest Pass while sheep hunting (near base of mountain, jumped him at about 30 yrds).
