Ended seeing 5 more sets of eyes but only one shot at a running fox at 100yds that was a miss. Wind and a knoll in the field hurt us.   Lots of fun though.

How was the decoy used in this kill?

It was sleeping in the truck.  Not used.

Fantastic evening ! Thanks for the invite again, my friend. It's late so I'll have to do inventory on my gear when I get up.

Direct beam doesn’t even seem to matter. I’ve had them react similarly to both halo and direct beam.

We hunted from like 8 until 11:30.  3 different sets and properties.  There is one more I am 99% sure we could have scored on but closest neighbors have a dog and we would be set up 200yds away.  Wasn’t sure if the call would cause their dog to go nuts in the house.  Left it for a daytime set.

How long do you guys sit at a set. And if you shot a fox or coyote do you continue to call 

Last night we sat about 30min at each set except last because eyes kept coming.  Almost an hour there and yes, 4 of the five came in after shooting at the first.

Agree. The 53gr / .223 put a hurt to the dog last night. He vanished after shot. Dead before he hit the ground and not even a twitch. I've found that bullet to be the best, if your after fur, ribcage. You want a dead dog, shoulders.

I haven’t in years. I used to go at night 10pm-2am at Lockwood (DEP) Land in Carmel. No full moon, I’d go shotgun and dad had big spotlight flashlight. Full moon, he’d have rifle and I’d have shotgun. I have an old fox pro spitfire e caller and a mojo critter decoy. It’s much tougher around here during the day I think.

 

In Arizona in daylight I called in grey fox in a few sets.

Decoy/ attractor for daytime is a must, night it's not needed

I was there on a lion hunt, but had an extra day so went calling on public land. Grey Fox seemed to be very aggressive. I’ve never done but see stories of people getting tons of yotes in Midwest states like Kansas

so what do you guys do with the dead yotes? I feel like this is the only real thing that stops me from going out into the woods at 10pm lol.
