Friend has been losing chickens and ducks to grey fox, which he has seen. He set out live trap with no results, was told to set trap with fox scent on it to cover human scent. Scent can be bought from sporting goods store. Put trap in plastic bag, cover with leaves, make the plastic into a tunnel leading to the entrance to the trap.

He thinks the fox comes about 4AM. I'm going to suggest he install flood lights to shoot by, and sit up with brother 12 gauge.

You sure have a lot to learn about trapping foxes.

To add to what was said about setting the trap for fox, roll a tarp out so you keep your scent off the ground up to the trap. When you're done setting it, roll it back up and take it with you.

Never put a scent on a trap, the fox will dig it up. Keep the trap clean so there are no smells on it. Wear gloves. Cover the trap with sifted dirt using a pan cover not a bag over the whole trap and or leaves. Google dirt hole set & find out how to place the bait and trap.

I gotta tell you, I must have been out like a light to sleep thru a turkey being killed right under my open bedroom window. I hope to heck it is not a fox because the only way to stop it is to leave the Labradorks out all night, or at least our female, and she can be overzealous in her alarm barks. Fireflies, a coyote howling five miles away, siren on the freeway two miles away...

Slept thru that bit last night, though. Whatever it was it killed it 100 feet from a sleeping dog and right under my nose.
