Where to hunt Fox
Numerous species of small canines go by the name of fox, but when most people say fox, they mean red fox. Originally a denizen of broad-leaved and boreal forests of Europe, Asia and North America, red fox adapts well to human-made agricultural landscapes. This allowed the American red fox to expand its range from the original limited area in the Northwest to almost every state. Fox is a traditional hunting quarry for many European nations, including England, Poland, Sweden, Russia. Hunting offers for fox exist in Argentina, too, but the quarry there is one of the two local species, completely different from red fox.
Fox is commonly included as an extra in package deal for hunting other species. It is these, more expensive, species, that determine the cost of such package trips. Dedicated fox hunting trips, and predator hunts that include fox in a package of other predators or pests (like coyote or rabbits) are quite affordable, and may cost as little as $150.
When to hunt Fox?
Where fox are considered pests, they can be hunted a year round. If you want to preserve the beautiful fur of the predator as a memory of the hunt, however, you should time your hunt to one of the winter months. With limited feeding opportunities typical for the cold months, and the rut that starts in February, fox is easier to hunt in winter, too.
Hunting methods All hunting methods (13)
Perhaps the most famous way of fox hunting is, well, fox-hunting, the way they do it in England and a few other countries, by chasing the fox on horseback with a pack of hounds. If you don’t care for riding in a red overcoat, you don’t have to – in other countries when people run hounds, they shoot foxes with shoguns. Calling is also a very popular way of predator hunting – foxes respond readily to mouse or rabbit in distress sounds. A lot of foxes are also killed opportunistically, while waiting for other big or small game. Some Russian outfitters may offer fox hunting with fladry, circling them with a line of red flags, like they do with wolves.
Why hunt Fox?
Nice red fur was once highly valued and drove a lot of people to try and hunt a fox. Retaliation was another. A fox is proverbially great at stealing chicken and other smaller domestic animals, and for a gamekeeper who has to maintain a high density of gamebirds a fox is the archenemy. On a more somber note, foxes are great carriers of rabies and other nasty disease. With additional supply of food provided by humans, they multiply way beyond the natural densities, and need to be controlled. However, killing a fox is much easier said than done. The wily critter didn’t become the trickster of the European folklore for nothing – it is quite a match for any hunter, and that makes for a challenging and exciting hunt.
