    Ive seen them in Monroe, Barren and Metcalfe counties. Seen four deer hunting this year. Three at one time hunting from the lake, went into a cove and there they were just standing there. The other one from a deer stand at almost dark, came trotting thru the woods w/ a big ol tree rat in his jaws.

    Rowan Co.
    Monday I saw my 3rd bobcat in the wild, this one was in Rowan Co. I was set up bow hunting about 15 yards off an old logging road, that turkey travel like clock work... this bobcat was working up a little runoff working toward me. When he got to the logging road it wasn't anymore than 20 yards away. Looked up and right past me, he knew something wasn't right. He didn't run off but he didn't waste any time working the other direction, which was right where my turkeys were coming from. I never did see a turkey, but I'd trade a bobcat sighting for a turkey every once and awhile.

    Not many people see them but all of eastern Ky. has a healthy population of bobcats. i've trapped a limit of 5 for the last 2 years. I've tracked them in the snow all along 4 lane highways and in some very populated areas. Let a deer get killed on a highway in winter and a bobcat will be there before long if the dogs don't keep them away. But they have an incredible ability to blend in and hide. i have walked up to a trap in the open in a grassy field mowed to 4 inches high and been surpised by a cat hiding behind a softball size tuft of grass.

    I have seen them in Meade, Breck and Hardin. I think that they are fairly thick. I can't remember the last time that I bow hunted all season and didn't see several cats.

    Bell county last year. I saw 4 last year, all together on the opening day of bow season. I sqeaked on my hand and they all 4 came within 20yds of the stand. I have had many pics of them over about 4 years of hunting this spot.

    Calloway Co. Had a big bobcat come by me at about 5 yards this afternoon while hunting on the ground. The part that sucks is I JUST got there and sat down. Didn't have an arrow ready. It didn't see or wind me. Talk about a bummer.
