The pasture land that the lines run through is in a "no fly" zone for aerial spraying so it's got lots of blackberry thickets and buckbrush. Anytime it's cold or it snows the rabbits lay up next to the lines for warmth. Always bunches of rabbits there. An interesting fact about that area is that it has more cattle guards per square mile than anywhere else. There used to be 3 oilfield lease roads going across each quarter section of land. Rabbits really liked the open pipes of the cattle guards also.
    I've been in the webb city area a lot. Mainly fishing, but get in some bird hunting on occasion. Your absolutely correct about the cattle guards. They are everywhere!

    Congrats on the new job!
    Rabbit populations are relative to the cover they desire and the cyclic nature of rabbits.
    When rabbits are everywhere, the predator population in the area pics up. It takes several years for this to all evolve. The rabbits go into a decline for several years, as the predator population picks up. Then the rabbits go into a decline again.
    It runs in cycles.
    Look for brush piles, and cover that you wouldn't think a rabbit can get in to. Stomp it out, and watch for them to move. Sometimes they won't move much. Once they get too much pressure, they leave the brush pile/cover and run in open ground.
    I was a big time rabbit hunter for years with a couple of beagles. There is not much more fun than chasing rabbits with beagles.
