a friend says there used to be a few in his woods 20 years ago which is near Gully Minn. about 60 miles n.w. of bemidji. but they are all gone now. i may have seen one cross the road near there 2-3 years ago but it was a quick glance so not 100% sure but i;d say 95%

This is a project for Chris or anyone in the St Cloud,Mn area.Get access to some of the swampy wooded areas near Cold Spring-especially near Collegeville and St Johns University.Set up at dusk and try calling.Unless things have changed a lot(may have with all the new houses etc)in the last 7-8 yrs think you might be surprised. :D

I have asked permission for that land around collegeville (st johns and st bens) and i think that i hold a better chance shooting 5 coyotes on one stand :shock: A lot of houses and damn tree huggers have moved in. The yotes have also really moved into that area. Then you have the guys who run them with dogs :roll: and the deer hunters wont allow you out there until after muzzleoader season. I heard a lot of excuses and comments when i went to ask last year. who knows i might have to work more towards cold spring :wink:

They really come to a call easy so if you find and area with sign or sightings you should be able to get one in.

I know where there are some grey fox and levi does too because we called one in a few years ago turkey hunting. The farm is close to my parents. I will have to work on that this winter. I plan on trying bird distress sounds. If there is any other sound that you guys might know of let me know. Also i have been seeing a lot of red fox lately out in the fields in the late afternoon around 4:00. i know they are different fox because i see them in different areas. It seems as though the fox are really coming back now in my area. I think the coyote hunters that run them with dogs have actually effected the coyote population in the immediate area. If the local trapper that i talk to a lot doesn't land trap this fall i will hopefully get permission to trap his areas on land and maybe pick a grey fox up here and there 8) It's all hope and dreams though until i actually get the job done :wink:

I've been seeing a few grey fox where I bowhunt over the last couple years. I'm just getting into predator hunting this year, so I haven't harassed them yet. They're actually rather entertaining to watch.

I dont have any real first hand experience at calling fox since i have done only a small amount, but it seems like the guys who have success are sticking to the bird distress sounds. I personally spot and stalk the fox that i take.

open reed, keep it high pitched, and make it sound crazy, works well

I spend most of my time hunting in the river bottoms of the Mississippi. What I have noticed is that Fox seem to use the small islands and pockets that are isolated for large tracks of land.

Its just something I have noticed around my area.
If its good enough; Better is achievable
