    Ive seen 2 in the wild both in Estill Co. on the Ky river. One I unintentionally spotlighted while frog gigging... the other one I was squirrel hunting and shot a squirrel and half way between me and the tree he was in, a bobcat jumped up and grabbed my kill and ran another 35 or 40 yards and turned around looked at me and ran off. I firmly believe we were hunting the same squirrel.

    I've seen several in Adair Co. Three on the farm I deer hunt (possibly the same cat) and others at random times anywhere from mid-day to midnight. Most recent was about two months ago crossing a field at 3 in the afternoon.

    Just curious to see how common Bobcats are here in Kentucky.

    Not that common Bill. Populations are spotty to say the least. The best population of bobcat I know of is crittenden co. Seems like you can't hardly move up there without stepping on sign. Calloway co has a much better population than graves. Hickman county is pretty fair as well.

    The big problem is getting one in front of the gun while it's legal. ;-) Jimmie

    The state bag limit is 5 bobcats. That should tell you there are plenty around.
