Re: Foxes

This is the easiest way I have ever encountered to get yourself a fox.
They can be the dumbest animal in the world. Especially when young.
This video was shot on the south coast of Western Australia near Esperance.
I might add that I was not the lucky person to have shot this video.

Re: Foxes

Thanks for the tips everyone....Not really in "spot and stalk" territory but I will definitely stick to the rodent and bird sounds. Looks like they're hanging pretty close to the marshes near my house....Looks like they're getting mice out of the cattails??

Great video...From the vid's I've seen there are just a few more foxes down under than we get in coyote country. What's your caliber of choice for least amount of pelt damage. I'm guessing the .17 would be pretty popular.

Thanks,

When I was shooting for pelts the .22 magnum was the best calibre most of the time as the foxes were real close and easy to shoot. A very effective round and cheap to buy. I also used .223 for long range shots. And yes , the .17 is gaining populatity for the reason you say.
Foxes here are near plauge proportions and do untold damage to our native fauna. Them along with feral cats. I imagine the person/s that decided to introduce foxes all those years ago would be turning in his grave now.

Ive used 22 magnum, and 223 solids to eliminated pelt damage. I have seen the 17 do some good and not blow out the other side.

Sounds like another reason to visit the land DOWN UNDER.

Re: Foxes

When using rodent sounds for reds don't over call, be sparing with the noise.

If you over call they can think that their stalk has been busted by the rodent and they will just move off.

One sound that works well is gray fox distress even if there aren't grays in the area, it seems to pique their curiosity.
