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?

saw a lot in KS

Was quail and pheasant hunting in Eastern Kansas a few weeks back and could have shot 4 or 5 rabbits a day if I had wanted to. The Quail and Pheasant were actually harder for us to scare up. Saw sign of bobcat in one native grass field and was told a mom and kittens lives there. Found lots of quail kill sights in that field and no birds. No rabbits there either.
