    I've been seeing foxes around my property, but I haven't been able to run fast enough to catch them. In addition, near the chicken coop, I can smell that gamey, gross smell that foxes leave behind, so I know that they are trying to get in.

    Do you have any tips on catching foxes? Perhaps there's a website with good pre-made traps? I have heard that foxes are quite smart, so I know that any trap I set has to be well-camoulflaged and carefully laid out.

    Thanks in advance.
