Keeping the economy moving since 1964

The owner of a farm where I hunt has had problems with predators raiding her chicken coop. She requested I dispatch of any predators I could while deer hunting on her land. I normally wouldn't do that as I have no need for coyotes or foxes, but she relies on her chickens so I keep an eye out. This morning I was hunting in a stand about 100 yards from her yard. One less predator to bother her chicks. And she was happy to take the pelt.

So where did you hit it and with what?

Very cool. Might make for a nice lifesized mount or (if you don't want to deal with that much of an expense) maybe just a tanned hide?

I hit it with a 12 ga. deer slug at about 40 yards. The other side is heavily damaged (side facing the ground in the photo). I had no interest in mounting it or taking the hide. The owner of the farm was happy to take it and I imagine she'll do something with the hide.

Good job taking out that fox. I have NO use for predators and take them out every time I see them.
