Predator hunting?

Post  Maddox on 2011-01-15, 01:38

So I get a phone call the other day from the farmer of the property I have been hunting on this year asking me to handle a nuisance fox that has began eating their geese. Now of course not wanting to sound like a total rookie I said of course I will work on getting this problem taken care of "don't worry". So here I am reaching out to all of you with a plead for help. I have never hunted predators and have no clue what to do so please let the posts come with some helpful hints. I am going to start by purchasing a predator call and hoping that it works close to the same as a duck/goose call so I can make some screaming noise like a dying rabbit. As many of you know I have really enjoyed the calling aspect of waterfowl, that being said I am guessing I will enjoy this as well. Do I need decoy? What about scent? Any good practices for a setup? Anything will help, don't hold back you might just save me from this farmer deciding I am total novice and of no use to them Laughing.

The funny part of this whole thing is that I got the phone call after having this fox at 20yds 3 days prior while hunting geese. I was in the layout blind enjoying the sun hoping to hear that familiar honk when I heard a crunching to my left. As I turned my head I was eye to eye with a gorgeous red fox. Had I known he was being a pain in the a@* I could have easily filled him with some #2 pellets! Oh well actually chasing him will be more fun!

I almost didn't need any advice as this morning while setup watching some crossing deer trails the fox stepped. He was only 50 yds but I had to step out around a tree to get a shot and when I did he was gone! Oh well back to needing some advice.

Forget those calls, nothing like hunting over a pile of old rotten meat. Put some kind of meat, goose,deer, cow what ever in a bucket seal and with a lid. Let it get good and stinky. Set it out in the field and sit back and have fun.( just th meat not the bucket too )

That makes sense! I was trying to think of the elegant way to do it but I bet that way works great!
