Why hunt Bat-Eared Fox?

Normally seen during a spot and stalk hunt or while traveling to/from your selected hunting area at dusk or dawn while actively feeding. You will be able to anticipate in which direction they are feeding and find yourself some high ground from where you will be able to ambush them. With the wind in your favour and a little patience you could get lucky. They have extremely good hearing so you need to approach very quietly. They may also be hunted at night with a spotlight.
