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.

+1.
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.

The definition **special little snowflake  **


A below average kid who is coddled and rewarded for mediocrity, usually by an overprotective mother, a 'sensitive' dad, or the public education system. The term stems from the concept that, like a snowflake, all children are special and unique and thus they should be treasured just the way they are so as to build their self-esteem.

i personally have only seen two in western washington. the most recent i was on my way to the nisq. wildlife area and had one run out in front of me, thought it was a really small yote, till i saw the dark legs, white tip on the tail. the other was in an abandoned farm field it was mousing around. there definetly on the wetside though.

I saw one on the top of white pass while night skiing a few years back. Thats the only one I have seen. I talked to a guy in the wenas last year who had shot and missed one off of sheep co rd. but it sounds like there are pockets of them here and there. good luck.

Cool, didn't know their were Grey Fox here.  Havn't seen any fox yet.  I think the Grey's make the nicest looking mounts.  I've got a Life-Size Grey Fox mounted at my house.  It and the Wild Boar were the only 2 mounts I brought with me when I moved.

Speaking of, saw one yesterday and got to show my wifer her first fox, by Ephrata.  Sure a cut bushy thing.  Mostly tail.  Not the reddest of them, but would have been a nice trophy.

We called in a Grey near the Winchester Wasteway Rest Area on I-90 last season.  Didn't shoot him, as we had a coyote comeing also, didn't get the coyote either.

After the first shot the rest are just noise.

I've seen a few fox in Klickitat county but they are few and far between.

theres two different types of fox in washington. both are a red fox, one is called a cascade red fox and i forget what the other one is called. they look the same, just in different areas. one lives up in the cascades and eastern washington, while the other lives in the lowlands like below the olympics. granted them things could be anywhere in the state, but thats just the general area that there supposed to be in
