I need some help, my neighbor lost 5 chicken last weekend to foxes, 1 was seen in broad daylight chasing a chicken through the middle of the yard where several people were having a barbecue!! We have tried dirthole sets around the pen all week with no catches, what should we do :?:

Is there a fence around the coup? If so find where they are entering and hang a snare. If not put a temporary fence up. Might ever try a urine post set. Try moving your sets away from the coup abit...say along the property line or even your property if you have seen tracks around.

EXCELLENT RESULT IN CATCHING THE 2 FOXES. MANY YEARS AGO WE PICK UP 59 PHEASANT POULTS TO A SINGLE FOX. MORE DOWN INTO THE WOOD WE LOCATED A LIVE BADGER IN SNARE. THAT DARK COLD WINTERS NIGHT WE WENT LOOKING FOR THE VARMINT! I SHOT ABOUT 7 RABBTS THAT EVENING BUT DIDN'T GET THE FOX......
