Grabbed this nice male in a bridger 1.65 with red fox gland lure in the hole. Real nice fur. The hide was real scarred with tick scars and even had small holes in it. Never saw that before. Thankfully the fur was in good shape.

nice one wcs!! he's a real nice color. just be careful fleshing around the tick scars. i dont think those will down grade the hide. i'm going to guess that he got worked over by a yote or another fox, thus the holes. was he alive in the trap when you picked him up?

He was alive in the trap. The holes he had were very very small, like a point of a pen. He seemed normal That's a 2003 Tundra Jase with 148,000 miles. She been real good to me.
