Saw a small cross fox moving down a powerline clear-cut while scouting for deer this morning. Rarely make sets for canines, but I think this one will be a good one.

Will a fairly new 1.5 coilspring hold a fox, especially a smaller one? I'm pretty sure it would, but if not, I'll just use a .22 Stinger and shoot it when the fox hunting season open up, but early fox trapping starts very soon...

A new 1.5 should hold a fox without a problem.

I saw a fox run across the road onto my property last night too and had the exact same idea as you. It seems that this time of year I see them quite a bit more often.

I prefer 1.5 cs victor or scm traps for fox. It does a nice job holding them, without alot of leg damage. Just be sure to install swivels in the chain, best is 3, one at each end, and one in the middle. But two will do in a pinch. :?

A 1-1/2 will work fine. I would suggest staking it down real good though. I've seen the size of some of your coyotes up there :shock:

I USE 1 1/2 CS VICTORS. THAT IS WHAT I HAVE USE SINCE I STARTED. I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH THEM. THEY WORK GREAT FOR FOX. I STAKE IT DOWN WITH A 18" 3/8" REBAR WITH A WASHER ON THE TOP. MAKE SURE TO COVER YOUR SCENT. GOOD LUCK.
