I'm going out calling tomorrow and I was wondering what are some good sounds for calling fox? The place I hunt I have called in 2 bobcats in one afternoon and have called in several cats and coyotes in the past yrs but I have never called in a fox and I want one badly! Any help on good sounds and what terrain to look for on set up would be great. Thank u!

Are there fox in the area?? I have called quite a few fox in with rabbit distress calls. I don't know if you have an e-caller but baybee cottontail(foxpro) works real good for me

                                                           If you use 'em, they will come !

 

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !

I have called in fox with rabbit in distress calls. It seems that I have better luck on fox after dark, maybe you might have better luck at night. Good Luck!

Thanks guys. I think there are fox in the area I have seen tracks in the snow and mud before but never got one to come in. I have a johnny stewart e caller and several primos randy anderson mouth calls. Do they come in as fast as a coyote or slow like a cat?

They don't usually come in quite as fast as a coyote but they come in pretty quick if they are there. I have had them come in at night from off to one side and sit right in front of me well within shotgun range. Your mouth calls and e caller should work good. Good Luck!!

PH says night time good advice--for-Red And Grays--- YD says baby Cotton tail good advice--Bird distress also--but its hard to beat your own lips-- lip squeaks at nite ---and Don't be to loud on your calls at night for fox____SB
CALL'EM THEY'LL COME

Thats right Swampbuck---if your loud with reds, they'll take off. I do well with bird sounds for greys, and a guy can take a good number of fox if you do the night thing.

If you are calling greys there is no better sound that the Johnny Stewart 113A grey fox pup in distress sound. If they hear it they will come.

Here is how.

I'd set back in where I still had a good view of the caller and the area around it. Stay well hidden and sit still. Fox are a lot like coyotes they'll try to get downwind if they can and IMO are harder to see coming in. The tail wiggling around is a giveaway.

I agree with SB and Catcapper when they say not as loud as you would with a coyote. I like to set up on the edge of a field.

Great advice! My son and I called a grey fox in utilizing the cottontail distress call. Started out wih 2 loud vocals and gradually drop down to a soft call. We continued with the soft call. Came in in 5 minutes at 5 yards! Keep your eyes open they are sneaky!!!

I have called in 7 fox in the last 11 days using foxpro's Freaky Squeak and luscious lips. Bird sound or any fast sounding call will work great on them.

Red fox have been making me mad latly. It seems like every other stand I make I have been getting red fox with my jackrabbit call when Im trying to call in coyotes. The usually come in fairly quick but they do a lot of looking around and they don't full out run like some coyotes. I think they take there time and watch close for coyotes so they don't end up being the next critter in distres
