Predator Hunting / Best times to hunt
« Last post by wfo204 on February 17, 2019, 09:03:16 PM »
Past 2 weeks I really hunted hard and did a couple all nights. Every night tho I would see a big drop off in seeing fox from the hours of like 10,11 o'clock to like 2,3 o'clock anyone else notice this? And what times are you seeing best results?

That's not the service that Fox Pro is known for I know there top people like Mike, Steve Abner are down at Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, as for different call there are some pretty good ones out there. I have the Crossfire and Wildfire both work great and have always had great service for any problems witch was adding more sounds or setting up sequences on my Crossfire.

Gear Bag / Support foxpro or turn my back
« Last post by coyotenightmare on January 31, 2019, 07:09:06 PM »
I am in the market for a new predator call. Have used foxpro calls for the last 15 years. I didn't hunt predators for a couple years due to a growing family but now have some more free time and want to get started again. Got my 2 FoxPro calls out and was disappointed neither one of them worked. Took them up to Lewistown today because their customer service was always great before. Was unable to speak directly with a 'technician'. Had to remain in the lobby and was told to wait their for an hour. No snacks, no coffee.  Also told my calls are outdated and not worth fixing but I can purchase new ones at a 'discount' if I let them have my 'old' calls. I was a little disappointed with the service and am not sure if I'll continue to support them or not. Any other brands of electronic calls you guys recommend? thanks

I agree with you for not taking the shot.  Never shoot unless you can 100% identify your target.  This time of year gets tough calling.  Many of the critters left have already been called before and even shot at, therefore they are very weary.  You’ll also find if you hunt a lot of fields fox will often hang up 200 yards out and just sit down and watch, listen and smell.  Many times never come any closer.  All you can do is throw some different sounds out there and hope one of them triggers them to respond.  I like using Foxpro’s Bay Bee cottontail as a coaxer.  Sometimes a simple bulb squeaker works for me.  Vole squeaks is another good one.  Play softly.   If they bark,  usually it’s because they don’t like something and it’s a warning to other fox.  Sorta like when a stranger comes in your yard and your dog barks at them.  Coyotes will do the same thing,  from my experience,  when a K9 barks it’s game over.....  they won.   Try using Red fox Rally if you have a foxpro and bark back.  It may get it to move enough for an identification and even a shot.   Most likely with two sets of eyes this time of the year is a mating pair running together.

Good luck,  I hope this helps

Predator Hunting / Fox advice
« Last post by j76clev2 on January 22, 2019, 11:02:47 AM »
The other night went out around 9pm before the so called winter storm moved in. Second stand walking off the road I hit eyes about 50 yards away on a feild edge it immediately disappeared so I set up. 3 mins into my second sound 2 sets of eyes sitting on an old overgrown log road across a creek about 100 yards away. Hung up not moving . I shut the call off sat in silence for about 2 mins which is when the strange vocalization started first close then farther then close then farther. ( only after a google search did I realize this was fox barking) I resumed prey distress on and off for the next 20 mins during the off periods the vocalizations commenced. To me it sounded like the first second of a pheasant cackle. Long story longer those eyes never came anywhere close enough to identify positively (if I had know what fox barks sounded like I could have possibly shot but never any oppurtunity out of the brush) ...almost like they established a safe distance and were still barking. Is there something I could have done differently to entice movement or was this stand shot from the get go? Does anyone here feel comfortable taking shots at animals in thick cover?
