How many fox, red or gray, have you live trapped?

Using a cage trap, to date I've taken 17 red fox. Most of them were surprise catches....

It's not a common thing, there are much better methods. But given enough time and an uneducated fox, I can usually do it with a cage trap....otherwise I'll go to other methods.

When going specifically after canines my choice: snares as a #1 choice; after that either coil springs or long springs. Coil springs are much more compact and can be used in a greater range of locations than long springs.

Hey aart, I referenced you in another thread...chicken missing it's head. Read the post above mine in that thread, I'd be interested in your opinion. It doesn't sound like chickens killing chickens, it sounds like a predator to me.

17?!?! WOW!   Surprise catches?

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
