[b][/b] My house is on the hillside overlooking a valley. On the hillside there were always plenty of quail and cottontails. Not today, it's a rare sight to find any. I may have taken care of the problem though. From mid December (2016) to mid January (2017) I killed two coyote and four bobcats from my backyard patio!

Very scarce here in ks have been declining for the last 10 years.There is 3 red tails to 1 cottontail plus way too many farm chemicals.

I have seen 1 cottontail all season, and that is counting the dozens upon dozens of times I have been out in the woods deer/squirrel hunting. The arrival of coyote in this region is where I am placing the blame.

Plan on trying to hit those nasty pests hard once squirrel season is through, but they are just so darn hard to hunt in a heavily wooded region, IMO.

I hunt central NY and I use to run rabbits almost nonstop with my two beagles. But over the last seven years the rabbit population has drastically declined where I hunt. I am not sure why - the 10 year cycle, predators, poor habitat. Take your pick.

My brother, my daughter and I went out this afternoon with my two beagle pups and my brother's two beagles. We did not run a rabbit and saw hardly any tracks in the snow. Very disappointing.
