Re: Lets Talk Fox

At the time of the mating season fox cubs are nearly full grown so the bit about killing pups is probably not true, but they are very territorial against other dog foxes.
The dog foxes are like most male animals they have no sence when they are chasing a female so are much easier to shoot.

This may sound stupid, but we never paid much attention to the wind. We've had them come in behind us, sometimes within a couple feet. Again, I don't know why the pup distress works so well, but we've tried several other distress calls and nothing worked as good as that. Coyotes come in once in a while too.

Re: Lets Talk Fox

On our ranch in West Texas, fox (grey) are a piece of cake to call in. Whoever came up with the saying "sly as a fox" had obviously not been around too many. Sure they are smarter than chickens but, come on, so are brine shrimp.

A few weeks ago we called in 3 grey foxes in less than an hour. We didn't even pretend to hide. Heck, we didn't even get out of the truck. I just put the caller out and started working the magic.

Last year, my dad was looking for sheds and walked up on what he thought was a dead animal, only to discover it was sleeping fox!

Re: Lets Talk Fox

We only have red foxes in the UK and they are realy switched on, but sometimes like any other animals you get stupid ones.
We were out about a month ago with the lamp and saw an eye flash and walked to about 25yds of a fox who was worming.
It was no contest 55grns out of a 22-250 one dead fox.
