I found one of my hens with a bald spot and a few puncture wounds today. They normally free range within an area where my dogs are able to patrol. When I found the pile of feathers within that area, I was VERY concerned that one of my dogs had gone "rouge killer". I locked the girls up and ran an errand. When I came home and headed back out to check on them I saw a red fox (handsome fellow) trying to get into my coop. I ran out screaming at my son to "get the shotgun" but quickly realized that I would not have been able to shoot it anyway for fear of killing or injuring my hens as well (considering the shot pattern). Can anyone give any good advise on hunting this vermin? I plan to borrow a trap, but I hear that rarely works for foxes. Will a .22 do it and is there a way to intentionally draw them in? Or has anyone had success with a trap?
