wne tout with my uncle preditor calling tonight. started calling 1/2 hour before dark. called and called untill it was about 45 mins after dark then shinned the spotlight for the 3rd time across the field. eyes at 100 yrds, it saw the light and started running. it was a grey fox. i shot and didnt think i hit it. so we walked over to the feild edge on the other side to look for blood. while we were lookin we heard fox barks at 50 yards into the woods and getting closer every bark. so we sat down at the edge of the field and started calling again after we were walkin around shining and talkin. we called for about a minute and turned the light on along the field edge. holy ****!! here comes a red fox running full bore at us only 15 yrds away. when he seen the light he turned 180 and took off. i found him in the scope and shot. damnit! missed again. i think i shot over him that time cause it was too close for my 22 mag which is zeroed at 100yrds. from now on im using my shot gun and i think ill wait for some snow. tomorrow im setting some traps for the buggers that keep stealing my muskrat bait. i put 2 out in 1 area every night and they are always gettin em when im not around. ill get em with traps now that they are comforatble getting free meals!
