Where'd all the rabbits go?

Back in September and October, there were rabbits all over the place around here, especially in the evenings and I was really looking forward to putting together a box-trap and trying it out. I've been watching the past few weeks now and haven't seen anything. My Beagle is really wondering what's going on. Seems like they were lots of them and then they just disappeared. I've been noticing a lot of bobcat sign up above the house, but I don't think a bobcat couldv'e done THAT much damage to a rabbit population.
Do they normally move to better ground or die out every year?

They population seems to be decreasing slowly this fall where I live in Central Texas. But they do this at the on-set of winter every year. However, I got a couple in South Texas with my handgun last week and they were everywhere. Must have counted 20-40 over a two day period. But the main key is that if you have heavy thickets you'll sooner or later have rabbits. The ones is south Texas I harvested were in very heavy prickly pear patches that a human could not walk through. :wink:
