    @Meatstick I thought I was losing my mind... I've seen 2-3 dead on the roads here in Bullitt Co. (Shepherdsville) in the last 6 months. I went out to Peabody (Ohio Co.) for spring turkey and saw a GIANT armadillo that got run over. I'm not from Kentucky originally and was definitely surprised to see them out here.

    Supposedly pork. I guess they eat 'em in a lot of parts. There's recipes online.

    I know of at least one roadkill on US127 in Mercer County (Harrodsburg) but they figured it was a hitchhiker from south. Sometimes they get on a semi truck and hang on for a while.

    Not seeing any in the Clark/Bourbon County area.........yet. We've had cameras out in the LBL area for a while and for the first time, seeing them live on camera there. I realize they have been there for a while but we never saw them while hunting or on camera until as of late. Hogs too for that matter. Lots of hog sign........not good!

    Saw my second Illinois armadillo yesterday just shy of exit 37 in Metropolis. Apparently, swimming the Ohio doesn’t bother them sum bucks.
