Re: Lets Talk Fox

I've gotten their full attention with a PeeWee mouth call blowing out towards the tip ..
But have never called one in from distance e that I could see. Several guys I've met say they come to rabbit distress calls.

Re: Lets Talk Fox

Sometimes they will come to a call sometimes they wont.

Any animal distress call works if they wont come wait a couple of minutes and try a differant call, only experiance will make it easier.

If you are using a lamp make sure you shoot and kill the fox because if you don't the next time you put a lamp on it it will leave in a rush.

Re: Lets Talk Fox

Sikadog,

Ok, how does one get some volume of of that gizmo.

Tried both ways, removal of primer cup and only the primer leaving the primer.

Ended up stuffing a "high brass" 20 gauge into the 12 gauge.

Got a very faint "tone"/"Note"

Having fun though!!!

I have called in many fox, not much different than coyote but they are usually more suspicious and will nearly always try to get down wind of you. Rabbit distress or kitten distress was my best call. They will come in from a long way if they can hear you, even a mile away.

Re: Lets Talk Fox

We have woodpeckers and Canadian Grey Jays here year round. Seems to me where a fox has a smaller stomach than a yote that a fox would come to a distress call from a smaller meal than a yote would.

Aparlantly Arctic fox on the north slope and further north only come to a lip squeek. . The theroy is that's the distress sound of a lemming or whatever those rodents are up there.
maybe it will give u some more calls to try. Bird sounds that is
