Default Trapping foxes

Trying to trap some foxes near me. What's the most popular way to trap them, w/ a snare or leg catch? Any tips/tricks are greatly appreciated!!!

I have had the best luck with a leg chatch, with a hole set.

you dig a hole into a bank set the trap at the mouth of the hole,put the bait down the hole. put a couple of sticks on each side of the hole to guide the animal into the trap.
you need to cover the trap with leaves.take care to not let anything get under the pan.

if you have a fence line than dig a crater under it so an aniaml can go under it and put a 11\2 coil or a snare there amd toss meat on both sides of the fence about 30 feet away
