I showed my neighbor the fox the other day and he wanted to go calling, so we took his razor yesterday and the further we went the colder it got.

Thanx Ed... I was beginning to think you didn''t like me anymore...like YoungDon! You know I always try to congratulate guys on their harvest, especially their first one. After someone has shot fifty .... under a feeder, it gets old, kinda like shooting fish in a barrel, no skill involved when a toddler can do to. Thanks again Ed, I hope your trip to the lake was productive and at least enjoyable.

Eric, just posted about my trip.  Again congrats on the fox. You need to get a hold of Mark and plan a bobcat hunt out west of Phoenix with a shotgun.

Haha yeah I'm just going to get one Rambo style with my bowie knife! We all know I won't be calling one in that close when I have a gun....Lol.

Oh and I called a coyote to 100 yards while parked on the side of the road in my work vehicle today. Just rolled the window down & blew on the Keychain call a few times. Haha.

20 Yards?  Surprised you could even find that critter in the scope.

 

Glad you're getting out as much as you have.  But, that white stuff?  What elevation was that?

Glen, it was probably under twenty yards.I really haven't been able to get out much, as far as elevation I don't know for sure, maybe 3500/4500 feet, the Superstition Mountains are not very tall. It was in the70's at the base and in the 30's up top, way to cold for me.

Eric you need a gun like this one--The savage model 24--I won this one at the Whitetails Banquet last month--223 over 20 ga---My other one is a 24F 222 rem over 12 ga-it started out as a 22 hornet, I had it dipped in snow camo and punched it out to the 222-kinda wished I would have kept it a hornet though the 222 kills great and is very accurate-----the 24F also comes in 223/12ga----Probably need to find a used one I think Savage discontinued the model 24 series---

Nice setup...
Now a 22 Hornet over a twelve gauge would work good for me... Did they ever make one in 22-250 Rem. over a 12 gauge?

Not that I know of Eric-------I should have kept it a hornet, That's all you need for fox That 223 /12 ga  model 24 F should do you good or the 22 h/12ga if you can find one

I agree with a sling for the shotty. Shotgun has been the most fur friendly tool that I have found in my experience.

I've been told that a shotty is not on the wanted list by a number of NAFA fur buyers , they say it cuts grooves in the fur much like a shaver.. didn't even think of that myself I would think that is a trade off for a much smaller hole .
