Red Fox Down... ( chicken killer )

Postby C_Carr316 » Sun Dec 12, 2010 11:33 am

My son has been asking me to shoot a red fox every time I go hunting b/c one killed some of our chickens in the summer. Everytime he hears a noise at night, thinks a fox is trying to come in and get him.

Sat was the last day of PA buck - gun, so I brought my fox call (Kettle Creek Calls) and decided to sound it off. I must have hit the right note b/c this red came flying in. I was more excited to bring this red home to show my son than if I shot a big buck.....

Now the red is down, maybe I can get the buck in late season archery....

Congrats and good luck on that buck

I like the black socks on that fox. Hopefully your son will not be afraid of the big bad fox outside. Great job. Good luck on that buck as well.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here, but I think that is a camera mounted on his gun. Either still or motion. In either case, would like to see the film if you got it. Post it on the site if you can C_Carr316. Good luck the rest of the way.

I was just browsing online. I think I have an idea of what he has got. Since we haven't heard back. I think he has some sort of Deer Ridge gun mount setup with a camo camera mounted. Not sure if the camera is Deer Ridge or not, but it is something along those lines. Here's a link.

Hope that helps.

There are also hat cameras that you put on the brim of your hat:

http://www.hatcams.com/about_hatcams.html
http://www.cabelas.com/product/Moultrie ... tt=cameras

Those are some of the ones that I have found. Let me know if you see anything else.

i dunno how the hat cams would work shooting and moving your head to a sight..... but the one that mounts to the bow or gun.... wont move as much off target...
