Default Fox Techniques

We've had several fox coming around our steer fences, brushlines and everywhere inbetween. One even came trotting up the driveway yesterday. I started going out this morning and saw nothing, then went out tonight and saw 2 of them running through a corn field, not slowing down enough to get a good shot. My question is, would a shot and a miss make them more wary? Even change their patterns all together? What about calls? I've heard during the breeding season they don't give much notice to rodent squeaks or rabbit distress calls. What can I do to get them a little closer than they travel naturally? Or at least stop one for a few seconds to get a decent shot? Thanks

Yup, every time you shoot & miss a canine you are educating them of what to beware of. Try calling, they still have to eat and will come in pairs which would be better. Pups distress get them coming too.
