Default Fox Calling????

I hunt coyotes and bobcats in Oklahoma but it is also legal for me to take grey and red foxes. I have lived and hunted here for 15 years and have only seen 3 foxes and that was while I was driving down the road, I have never called one in. Should I be doing anything different to call in a fox than I do to call in cats and yotes, or just keep up what I am doing and hope I get lucky some day.

Where I hunt there are plenty of Red Fox. Coyote numbers are getting higher, and locals have been shooting them. I havn't had the opportunity yet.

But fox calling is just a rabbit in distress call or a rodent distress. I hunted two days ago and gave a bunch of rabbit in distress calls, and had one red come running in.

Best of luck

Yep, what he said is right. I don't know much about calling 'yotes, but for red/gray foxes, we use rabbit & rodent in distress calls.

Hey thanks for the input guys, it sounds like Im doing everything right to call in a fox I just dont think I hunt in an area where there are many foxes. Like I said I have only seen 3 in the past 15 years. Maybe Ill get lucky and call in one of those 3. lol!

I bought a squirrel call to use for squirrels and on the call it had a distress call. Would that work for fox or coyotes? It's just a real high pitched squeal.

An animal in distress is an animal in distress, Coyotes aren't picky when it comes to an easy meal! I try to have a good variety of distress calls, especially late in the season when they get call shy!

My high school baseball coach was from there, and then I think he moved back after he left out school. Do you know John Morgan?
