Has anyone ever done this before? If someone had told me this I wouldn't have believed them but.....I was out for a walk behind my house this evening, the habitat being woodland leading on to farmland. It was late dusk and I was under trees so light was low. I was walking along a narrow woodland track when I saw a bump up ahead may 45-50 yrds - old habits dying hard I stopped until I could identify it and when it started moving and sniffing around, I could see it was a fox, so I slipped behind a tree, hunkered down and started calling it with my hand. 5 minutes later two foxes appeared - the first (the original) stopped about 20 yards off after running in.
A second, young, fox appeared to my right and moved not very cautiously right up to me. I stayed stock still and it came closer! In fact, it came within about 7 inches of my knee and sniffed without being disturbed, surveying me for several seconds before moving off, then circling back in front of me, oblivious to me, then sat down for a few moments 7-8 yrds to my right before scatting around looking for this rabbit in distress!
Has anyone else called foxy in this close?
