The new plan has DOUBLED the annual number of bobcats that hunters and trappers can kill and would also open up vast new areas of the state that previously were off limits for hunting and trapping.

I do not understand the dynamic here. Bobcats only exist in about 1/4 of New York state ~ primarily in the more sparsely (human) populated Catskill and Adirondack regions ~ with an estimated population density of 5 ~ 15 per 100 SQUARE MILES!
They pose no significant threat, and while their population is *stable*, predators, disease, and starvation take an enormous toll, especially on the kits.
Pennsylvania has at least shortened the bobcat season significantly, but here again there's no point in hunting the cats at all.
Fortunately, since the cats are nocturnal and extremely secretive the takes are very low.
