    your foxes are probably not fussie,but anything even road kill,but put a scent trail so that they walk on to it from any angle.good luck.

    Mike Powell, who writes for sporting rifle magazine, recommends dry dog food smeared with some tinned cat food.

    I was just going to say a mate of mine used to chuck dried dog food about on dusk so the crows didnt have it, you never know if your lucky mike may just make a comment for you

    + 1 with big white hunter - unzip a decent sized rabbit or two and if you can, drag them on a bit of string put a large cross on the field to ensure the scent can be picked up from any entry point and place a couple of tethered but unzipped rabbits in the centre and let the breeze do the rest.

    you can call them in to the field and it should help keep em interested until a shot presents itself.

    Try not to use illumination until your on to a shot for positive ID, if needed, a good pair of binos usually do the trick for locating em, nice and quiet, wind in your face,
    Keep lamps to a minimum and stealth will get em

    good luck

    Try a kebab type set up ie skewered rabbits or a wire cage full of offal heads Ect have used both to good effect from my kitchen window with foxes visiting both day and night .

    Tin of sardines in oil

    Puncture the tin a few times with the nail, then nail the tin to the top side of a fence post so the oil leaks down the post.
    Get setup to ambush the fox, you will know the range to the post - sorted!!

    Boil some horse hoof clipping for a couple of hours, pour it into a demijohn and leave it to go black. Do not spill it on yourself as you won't get it off. A few drops will attract foxes for miles!

    Above advice is what worked for me tonight, zipped a couple of rabbits scented the field and waited a while. Got fed up and thought I'm going for a walk around the ground, came half way back up the field and seen this one just down wind of the rabbits. Taken at roughly 190 yards +/- paced out so don't quote me on it.
