Red Fox question
« on: October 09, 2017, 08:12:34 PM »
I'm down here for a contracting job in Nevada and hunting every night.  just bagged a kit fox and now want to get a red fox.  What calling sequence do you recommend?  There is a abundance of coyotes here and have called them in at almost every set to not shoot in fear of scaring away any fox.  Looking for a call that may lessen the chance of a coyote coming in.  I have a FoxPro, and jack attack that has been pretty good to me so far with the kit fox :tup:
Rather be dead than cool.

They both pretty much eat the same thing, so your going to have to wade through the coyotes until you find a fox.  I've called coyotes on fox distress and just about every call I can think of from the smallest mouse squeak to deer distress.  Reds don't seem to be very prevolent in coyote country.  I used to trap a lot of fox, when coyotes started showing up in the traps the red fox catch would drop off.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

That's what I understand. Wolves above yotes and coyotes above foxes.
Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.

Dont let any yote walk away... If your calling in yotes shoot them and go find a new area. I've trapped a ton of red fox and find them 99% of the time around Ag fields.
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.
