Default Got a doe and a fox!!!!!!

Got blown at by 2 different deer before it got light. Had a deer within 30 yds. of my stand but it was too dark to tell what it was but........... at 6:08 am got me a doe and at 7:05 am got me a fox!!!!!!! The fox was standing almost in the same place that the doe was when I shot her. That was my first fox too. It was beautiful!!!! I guess it was a red/gray mix. It was mostly a blackish gray color but did have some red or should I say orange. The doe was 18 yds. away and the fox was 19 yds. Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!

Just curious, what do people do with a fox when they kill them? I see them all the time and know there is a season for them. But Don't know why anyone would want to hunt them.

Good question DeerWhisperer,

When I was younger I sometimes killed things just because I could, with no use for the animal.

Now that I'm older (OLD) I only shoot what I am going to eat. Might be a maturity issue or there could be a problem with overpopulation of foxes.

For myself, I just enoy watching them when I have the chance.

You better not shoot a fox in some countys of Md.I shoot them every chance I get, but with a camera.Someone give us one valid reason for shooting a fox. Trapping a fox I understand, it's for the pelt but a pelt is useless with a big bullet or broadhed hole in it. Oh, BTW, congrats on the deer.
