Never hunted fox. But used to hunt coyotes when I was a kid.

Unfortunately, we used dogs, and there's some issues with using a dog for your problem.

1) If you tie up the dog, the fox will figure out how to get around him and still get your chickens.

2) If you let the dog run loose, the dog might actually also eat your chickens.

you could try a dying rabbit call and a spotlight with a red lens on it to shine 'em.

If you kill one stay the hell away from it.

That is by far the most flea bitten animal on Earth.

Don't know if this will help or not MOHillbilly, but I have a Johnny Stewart game call CD that has a fox and coyote fighting. They say it is supposed to work on foxes but I've never called any in with it - though I haven't used it much and I don't call in places where there are many foxes. It might give them a different sound to come to other than the worn out cottontail rabbit bit. You should be able to get it from the Bass Pro shop there in Springfield.

BTW, my "Game Call" consists of a walkman CD player, a small PA speaker, and a small signal amplifier you can pick up from Radio Shack for about $10.

MOhb- Is that a Waylon Jennings av? If it is, :thumb: !

My bud's pop had the same prob. He got a Great Pyrenees dog, trained him, and no more problems. Now that I think of it, his was a prob w/ sheep and coyotes, not foxes. Sorry, prolly not much help.

Maybe a nice dish of antifreeze?

You could get one of those Banny Roosters, put steel knives on his feet and let him take care of the foxes.

Man, a couple of cases of beer, a caller, and a spotlight would be loads of fun.

When I was young I used to hunt the two legged kind every weekend. I never caught many though.
