Not been an avid fox caller until now but after 3 chickens taken I daylight I went out on Sunday night with my fox call uk that has been sitting in my toy box for too long. Sat in my high seat and a somewhat amateur squeak on the caller managed to bring in a pair of nearly fully grown cubs owithin about 5 seconds. Tried for a right and left - got the right but couldn't get on the left before it scarpered .
Last night I was out to finish the job, as I walked from the house to my woodland I saw what I think was the other half of the brace sniffing around on the road between my house and the woodland, sitting on the Tarmac. Was it smirking at me in the knowledge that I am a law abiding citizen?
I was able to see it from the woods once I got away from the road, gave another squeak and it b*****red off in the other direction - think I may have educated said fox (did bring in two owls so my squeaks can't have been too off). Damned if I am to be beaten, I therefore ordered a ucaller from Swillingtons in the hopes that it calls more realistically than do, or at least differently.
So my question is, given that I may not have too many opportunities with this young fox, what is the most effective technique to call it in? Short bursts or keep it playing for a while and hope for the best? Any recommendations on Calling would be gratefully received.
