Two really nice foxes. I might keep doing what you’re doing for a bit...seems to be working. Check out Clint Locklear...good podcasts and YouTube videos on catsWell, that same box set was closed today with another large fox. This one had a much longer tail as well. Going to pick up the trap tomorrow and change my focus to bobcats.
That’s crazy hopefully that gets changed I’m in Ks and we can use all kinds of traps and now we can even hunt them at night with night vision or thermal scope certain times of the year and we still have tons of them I’m sure in states with more restrictive methods of take they are probably are way over populatedSadly yes. The worst part is we have a ton of coyotes around here, but no way to catch them. I have tried calling but no success so far.
Amazing !Didn’t put out any traps this year because we moved from Westcliffe down to Rye in September. Do pretty well with the Bobcats in the Wet Mountain Valley depending on the snow fall. Had this guy in a trap one year! Young cat don’t know how she even got in the trap. I released her by the way. View attachment 169445 View attachment 169444
Great job , it’s not easy to catch foxes in cage traps! CongratsAs hunting season died down this year I found myself with a lot of time on my hands and decided to take up trapping. Being from Colorado I can only use cage traps which I knew would be a little more difficult to get predators to go into and that I couldn't set many out. I got 2 XL Duke Cage traps which I set out baited with rabbit parts and fox pee. Finally after about 3 weeks a walked up to my first closed trap and caught a beautiful grey fox! It definitely took a lot of trial and error to finally catch one as well as hours a day up in the national forest looking for sign but it finally worked and I though I would share some pictures of the success.

We can actually hunt at night too surprisinglyThat’s crazy hopefully that gets changed I’m in Ks and we can use all kinds of traps and now we can even hunt them at night with night vision or thermal scope certain times of the year and we still have tons of them I’m sure in states with more restrictive methods of take they are probably are way over populated
Dang, that stinks.Well, it appears someone was not too pleased to find one of my traps. The cd I had hanging as a visual was broken into pieces over the trap, the trap was set off and my camera was gone. Was planning on moving the trap anyways so now seemed like a good time to pick it up before they decided to steal the whole thing. On a positive note, I was very close to catching a bobcat as I had one investigate the trap but not go in it.
