    do foxes have a routine?

    I've seen the one that got my chickens, at 1:00 in the afternoon, around the same time i list my chickens, in 2 days,

    will it show up around the same time? I've two chickens left, fenced in,

    do they go every day or every other day?

    curious,

    was just sitting there the other day and saw him just sitting there looking at me,

    now i want to see him just ONCE more,,,,as i sit there with my 20-pump

    Red Foxes tend to follow a routine, especially when food demand high by kits at den and prey availability is predicatable. Fox currently working my area you could almost set watch by. Mine coming in every day although when they catch a young rabbit which is very easy right now, then they skip working close to core of my poultry area. If setting up to hunt, be in place an hour before fox typically comes in and be prepared to stay an our past last observation on clock. Direction of approach will also be consistent.
