Hey fellas, i checked traps this morning,and had a fox go by my scent post bout 4 feet away never missed a beat paid no mind ,jus kept goin ,the second set was a flat set with a small hole with some Carmans bushwacker and fox gland lure with a little Pro Choice call lure ,the fox was only inches away, same thing never paid any mind at all!

Why dont you ask the fox where to set and what to do? He already told you he wasnt interested in what you did or what you offered. He also told you where he likes to travel. Now all you need is a trap where he is going to step without him knowing anything is there. No lure no bait....just some subtle and casual grasses, branches, or the such like to help insure he is going to go over your trap, and a little something to insure he will step on the pan. Thats all you need. The details you will figure out with close attention. Pressured fox often are best taken in blind sets. Snares will work great to if you can use them.

Amak that's good advice. I'll bet that the fox will step in exactly the same place next trip through.

sidewinder, it sounds as though you are on a trail, if so, think of trails as a bypass around town; a quick way from A to B, not exactly where you stop to shop, maybe

Hey Backwoodsmanback,i jus saw this ,no i never got that fox there it actually stepped on the spring and jaw but never throwed the trap.
I did have some luck at another set ,i caught a coyote and red fox so, it turned out pretty good after all.

Sounds like good reason to put several traps out at each trap. It has worked for me.

Congrats on the yote and red. Its amazing how some reds will stumble into any set but the next one wont go near steel or has the luck of the irish. Some of the hardest catches ive had have been reds and some not that old. Welcome to WAT Chick.
