Got my fisrt fox today.

Went out calling today and missed a couple of coyotes that were on the move, but I was able to get my first fox. Had been calling for coyotes and upon getting up to leave spotted the two foxes, at first they looked like small coyotes. I raised up and shot over the first ones back, luckily the second stayed put just a little to long.

Nice looking fox!


It's been a while since I've called one in.

Not much to tell, 75-85 yards with a .223 52GR HP went in the chest, left a large exit hole on the opposite shoulder about the size of a golf ball.

I may look into getting it mounted as they are a pretty rare find, at least for me anyhow.

Good shooting...it's not like they're a very big target. I shot one at about max 15 yards straight on in the front of the chest with a 22lr...it let out a high pitched dog like whine/yip for about 4-5 seconds and that was it....crazy sound. Anyway congratulations once more.

Nice shooting, but I beat you, got mine on the first ;-)
A big red, first one I called in. Sure is purdy.
Got two more coyotes since then, last night had to go out on some ice along a river to collect the last one.Sure am glad we got some cold weather ;-)
