Dayyyummmmmmm. I was in West Palm Beach a couple weeks ago when the Mrs called and said there was Fox took up residence in our driveway culvert with 4 pups. She said they were soooooooooooooooooooooo Cuuuuuuuutttttttteeeeeeeeeee and everyone enjoyed watching them frolick mere feet from our living room window. Well, Ol Mrs Cuz and children have changed there tune on just how cute Ol Mama Fox and the four pups are now. Out of 26 chickens, 2 mallard ducks the kids raised from chicks, and a guinea, we are down to 4 chickens. :angry: She has eaten every dam one of em. Her best day was a 8 chicken one duck day. Not being Fox Season, Ol Cuz is in a tight spot with Ol Mama Fox. She has sense moved the pups to underneath my neighbors shed. I went over yesterday to harass em and hope they run off. I ran 3 of the pups out from under there as they raced by me from only a couple of feet away. I made a lunging dive at one hoping to catch the little rat, but it was too fast. :smile2: Not quite sure what I would have done if I had nabbed the little varmint but would have been cool to let Jack shoot bb's at it. :wink: Needless to say, the four pups are thriving on there new diet and have grown rapidly. I dare say they are big enough to make it on there own now. I'm counting the days until the season opens back up, and I'll be sittin there with the Savage 243 and Ol Swampys Predator call which I still have lol, and looking to extract a little revenge. Mrs Cuz has indicated she'd really like to see mama fox stuffed and sitting on our fire place mantle. So whom am I to buck the Mrs Wishes :roll_eyes: One must give credit to the four remaining chickens as they dont seem to want to leave a 4 foot space from around the foundation of the house. LMAO. I cant imagine for the life of me why not :tounge_out: To add insult to injury, I was awaken this morning at 3am with Ol Mama Fox yelping out to reign in her pups. She did this for 2 hours. I was extrememly close to calling the Conservation Department, and telling them to go ahead and fine me for killing a furbearer out of season, and prepaying the ticket oooh: There is one PLUS out of this entire debacle, and thats the Fox Pups really really like digging up and playing with the Moles. I bet there were two dozen carcasses around Betty's shed. They dont eat them ironically enough, so I'm assuming they just play with them until they are dead, but I've found about 10 spots where the pups captured moles from my yard so not all is bad. :wink: And if the Fox's arnt bad enough, I have a den of Coyotes along the creek bank just behind the house. Sounds like I might have a good varmint hunting spring when the season opens. I'll keep everyone apprised on my endeavors with the varmints.
