Trapping a fox

Postby Profiler999 » Mon Feb 20, 2012 12:45 pm

Got a fox around the house that my wife is afraid will eat her 7lb Maltipoo that cost more than my gun. So....are there any rules on this? Can I trap and relocate? Can I just eliminate it?

I'm sure there are rules. A cage type live trap would be safer on any of the neighbors pets or your wife's.
But a 22 through the cranium of the fox will eliminate the problem fast.

And I just bought an Advantage Arms .22 conversion kit for my Glock 20!!!!! Since I'm on private land, (11 acres), it does appear that I'm good to go.

Anyway, I went to tractor supply and got a large trap, Gander mountain for some fox lure bait and I'm all set.

Oh yeah, I became an expert by watching youtube videos!~

Stay tuned for video and camera feeds.

The traps work well. I live in the city and have a problem with coons, opossum, and various other critters. I have cleaned up quite a bit with the trap. :W:

It's nice to live so far in the woods that You dont have to worry about being quiet.

Id let the fox be. Never heard of anyone having a real problem with a fox unless they have chickens. I see a few every now and then on my place and my weinie dogs are still goin strong.
