Last night at around 7:30 pm EST, My wife spotted at least 2 foxes coming from under our neighbors barn. About a month ago that same neighbor mentioned seeing a fox heading toward our property from thiers. So havahart traps of an appropriate size are over $100.00!!! NOT GONNA HAPPEN! Did a little quick research online andfound a video on youtube.com on spring snare traps. (I will post link soon.) I then proceeded out back, with my hubting knife and my trusty machette, where they where seen and began building my first-ever homemade trap. In 15 short minutes I had my spot scoped out and the trap built and successfully tested. MAN IS SHE A BEAUTY!!! As you can see I am very proud of myself! Wish us luck!!! Will post pics of the trap and directions tomorrow and will update aa we go. I'm sure my wife ChickyLoo will post on here if she gets it while I'm at work. *** Just some extra info.... I chose a foothold snare as opposed to a hanging snare, just incase I happen to catch some unintended prey (ie the neighbors cat, etc.) It wont be killed and can be easily set free.
