Where are you located? Never having seen one and not many around makes me wonder if you have bigger and badder predators in your neck of the woods.
I usually kill one or two every year, and actually killed one back in 2005 that was only a few ounces shy of the SC state record at the time. It's the only taxidermy mount I own. It was a big male and had to be mounted on a Northern Lynx form, due to the unavailability of a bobcat form large enough.
Down here, we have bobcats, gray and red fox, and of course the damn coyotes. I kill every predator I get an opportunity to kill, including feral dogs and coydogs.
