    Default How many bobcats have you seen here in kentucky?

    How many bobcats do you think you have seen here in Kentucky ?

    Are bobcats common throughout Kentucky?

    I am new to the area,and I know bobcats are rare in the Midwest, but you can hunt them here in Kentucky.

    Have you ever seen any bobcats in LBL or in western Kentucky?

    My neighbor used to have permission to trap at LBL and he cought several. The park ranger would tell him where he saw them and you know the rest.

    There's more than most folks realize. I've only seen a handful while hunting over the years, but see tracks all the time. I really believe that they have a very small home range most of the time, and coupled with the fact they are highly nocturnal don't make them super visible most of the time. The exception to that is when the toms start moving prior to breeding, kind of like a buck deer; you could have one in a trap miles from where he normally hangs out. I nailed a big tom a few seasons back in a wide-open ag field I was setting for 'yotes that was at least a mile from any woods or thickets that might have held a cat. Up until that day, I'd never so much as cut a cat track on that farm, and haven't seen a sign of one there since.....

    I have trapped 8 in the past few years and killed one with a rifle. I have seen quite a few while deer huntin. First day of gun season 2008 saw 4 at one time while hunting, I assume it was female with her kittens, they were all about the same size.
