NE corner is where I got mine. It has the best huntable population as far as I am concerned for Washington state.   I have heard of a few in the Klickitat area though I haven't confirmed.  I couldn't tell you about westside.  I've seen one in the Methow and one in the Naches area, though wouldn't want to bet my life on finding one there.

They are fast and alot smaller than they look.  They are VERY susceptible to calling....WAY ore so than coyotes.  I think half of it is curiosity.

Michelle, yeah, they have grey fox.  In fact, I think I remember seeing more of them around Pullman area than red fox.  Here is a link to their range.

i killed 1 in new york state a few years ago deer hunting. a bad idea, from personal experience, is to shoot 1 with a  30.06. lets just say i didn't have to field dress the animal. their is a mount of that critter in a little taxidermy shop in upstate NY...last time i saw him he was set up right next to a full body mount african lion.
i was surprised how small it was...i had a picture in my head of something a lot bigger i guess.
