Would like to hear from guys who have called in fox on a regular basis.
A farmer called and said he has a very large population on his land. I have called in a few over the years but was targeting coyotes. I want to be a little more prepared so would like to know what methods you guys have used to put fur on the ground.
What types of distress calls, fox vocalization, decoy or not?
I have Wildlife Tech E-caller (includeds fox sounds) as well as hand calls.....
I snagged 3 fox this year all at night, but none of them were called in so sorry no good calling tips. My only advice is that I see foxes out well after dark several times a week but I have only seen probably 3 in my life in the daylight. Calling at night would be a good bet! Also, it's been my observation that they stick to the same small area night after night for extended periods of time so if you see one, try that spot the next night.
Fox calling and shooting at night is a major sport in the UK thousands of foxes are called using squeaks by sucking the back of your hand.
Wigeon calls work realy well any type of mouse squeaker 2- 12gauge cartridge bases pushed together after cutting off the plastic and blown through dont forget to take out the primers.
Fox Pro do a good amount of calls for foxes some good some bad.
If I can help anymore please shout.
Take 2 empty 12 guage cartridge cases push out the primers trim back the plastic until you only have the metal bases left turn one of them over until the open ends are facing each other and push together with a bit of fiddling one should slide into the other place in a vice and push together until they are solid.
Now place mouth over the end and blow it will whistle I have called many a fox with this method it might take a bit of adjustment to get the right note.
