Thread: Will the foecast drop in temperature get the foxs calling

    Will the foecast drop in temperature get the foxs calling

    Well further to my original post I haven't heard a fox call for months, not seen that many but its so wet down here its been v difficult to get about. I noted acouple of travelling foxs but not heard any calls. Other isssue is in that the grass is so long due to the mild weather is v difficult to locate them on our silage fields.

    Whats the general feeling re above?

    You should spend a night in London. Plenty of foxes making noises here at the moment.

    Plenty calling round here, caught up with one last night feeding on a dead sheep, and again tonight had to pack in early as the mist came in, couldn't see a thing through the NV

    Finding that there is so much natural food around they are not to bothered about coming to my call at the moment,plenty to be seen but as I'm back using the lamp as my NV gear is away having a mod and a service done so not easy,

    Without wanting to hijack this thread what calls are you using at the moment please?

    There are very few foxes calling around here at the moment - but then again, that might be because someone has shot most of them! I've called some in lately, but there doesn't appear to be any single track that works best. I mostly jump between fox mating sounds, rodent distress and chicken squawks.

    Thanks for that Paddy!

    Been using the foxpro with the jack on it in open spaces both in the daytime and at night,

    at at night it has a led on it that puts a small amount of light on the jack and boy does that work
