Thought I might give this it's own topic. We are currently at war with the local fox. In the mean time the birds are still locked in a stall in the barn, while we build Chicken Alcatraz. I don't care if the fox leaves dead or alive, but he's got to leave. We have zero experience with any kind of hunting (city girl moves to the country). I am trying to get a police officer friend of mine to a.) come out and shoot the fox, and b.) teach me to shoot so I can take care of future problems. What are the best options? Has anyone tried snares? Other types of traps? I understand that even if you trap the fox, you wind up shooting it anyways. If traps are a good option, what is the best way to set them?
