    Well thats it. Out of over 30 chickens, 5 guineas, 2 Mallard Ducks, and a Peacock, we have NOTHING. Zilcho, Nada, not one breathing critter.

    The !@#$%Y Foxes got every last one of them. The last remaining Rooster and Hen got whacked this morning. I came out the door with my coffee as Ol Fox was runnin off with the last chicken. Despite having the 243 on the porch with me, I still was unable to catch a quick bead on the fleeing varmint.

    I've got Swamps top of the line, Fox Pro Fury but they just lay in the weeds and laugh at it. I give up. Maybe they will just go away now that were not feeding them anymore. :angry:

    Tis will be a proud day when I'm heading to Bilbreys Taxidermy Studio with Ol Fox in my truck bed. I hope I am able to see it. Right now, the Fox is more illusive then the triple digit Blue Cat. :cool2:

    That sucks! Sorry to hear about you loosing all them critters!

    My dad was having the same problem earlier this spring, then he turned his chicken coop into fort knox! He burried about a foot of fence around the darn thing and hasn't lost another one since.

    You might have better luck with the Fox Pro now that the free dinners are gone. Have you tried setting a few steel traps..They are hard to call in if they aren't hungry. Them ole Foxes are definitely sneaky little B@st@rds

    Lmao nope no more head dives for fox pups. They are full grown now. Lol

    chicken update

    out last remaining rooster and hen are still alive!

    It was one of the neighbors hens I saw being carted off via the foxes mouth. I saw Ol mama fox when I pulled in from the meeting last night and I made a pact with myself. If it takes my last breath, I will see the day when I'm posing for a nice pic with that varmint! So let it be written, so let it be done. My 243 sits dutifully perched on my porch just waiting for the moment she's called to duty. With Grumpers handloads and one inch groups at 100 yards, me thinks she's ready. One of these days Ol mama fox is gonna slip up. Cuz will be there when she does. It is my fate, my mission. Lol

    I've got a couple of ideas that might help out. Get a couple of geese. They might actually succeed in chasing the foxes off. Or get one of the motion detectors from harbor freight or amazon. It'll do a sound when something approaches the sensor. They're cordless now and $20.

    What we use to do back home was bait them with chickens. Take a live chicken and tie one of its legs to something and they will come a running when they hear them. Most of the time the chickens made it home without being harmed, but sometimes a coyote was too sneaky or i feel asleep and it was too late. We did this for yotes but i am sure it will work for foxes, as it drew them in as well. Andrew

    Steve to be honest, I could use a good mouser. Our outdoor cat Sadie is about 14 years old now, and she just lies there and watches the mice run across the floor. The Mrs and kids two indoor cats dont know what a mouse looks like. They might get there precious little paws dirty :eek:oooh:f

    Ifn I get the nod to add an additional family member for mouse patrol, I'll drop you a line. I'll get that !@#$ FOX, and when I do I'll be posting its carcus right on here for all to see, minus the live footage of me doing the money dance. :cool2:
