My son has been asking me to shoot a red fox every time I go hunting b/c one killed some of our chickens in the summer. Everytime he hears a noise at night, thinks a fox is trying to come in and get him.
Sat was the last day of PA buck - gun, so I brought my fox call (Kettle Creek Calls) and decided to sound it off. I must have hit the right note b/c this red came flying in. I was more excited to bring this red home to show my son than if I shot a big buck.....
Now the red is down, maybe I can get the buck in late season archery....
Congrats on the fox! I had a trio of them working my pigeons last month and prior too. My last count was I had some 165 pigeons in the one large loft. Those are mixed with Racing Homers and Birmingham Rollers.
I stared to notice the numbers going down and figured the hawks had set in with a regiment of those critters. Well, one day I caught this fox trying to jump up into a pigeon loft that had the door open. I then grabbed the .17-HMR Savage rifle and smacked him dead center of the chest. He went down fast and laid there for several minutes.
I put the rifle up and went out to get that pelt! No such luck gents, this fox got up and then trotted off down through the woods. I lost 2 of those critters using the .17-HMR and decided to go the route of my old .222-Rem. with 40 grain bullets. It worked like a magic wond on #3 fox at 55 yards. The .17-HMR will be used for P-Dogs up close and ground squirrels only.
I recently bought a box of 500 rds of surplus .308 Winchester ammo. I bought it for target practice but after reading tracer's post I'm wondering how well this caliber can do against small critters. Any opinion on that matter?
