Just wondering. I see a lot of pics on here but to my knowledge they're not much of a predator to anything that matters. Thoughts?

I think some people kill them to protect turkeys and their chicks. I think most people kill them because they easily come to calls or because there just seems to be too many of them. I have killed 2 but prob won't kill anymore unless a landowner says he wants them killed. I think they are fun to watch. Most are killed in predator competitions.

I have a family of reds at my house, we see them regularly. Also have a large population of cottontails and the foxes dont seem to bother them. I doubt they kill anything much bigger than a rat but could be wrong. I leave them be.

Another reason I see people kill them is because they have chicken coupes.

I shoot raccoons before I shoot foxes.

I give them a pass.....hogs, ringed-tailed-rats (coons), and coyotes get hammered...

I used to trap grays for fur back in the 80's but now I leave them alone. They are better mousers than coyotes and they leave most everything else alone.

I think its the "got to kill something mentality", imo, I never did. I am not a tree hugger or anything like that, I just enjoy watching wildlife as much as shooting something that I can eat. over the years I have sit and watched more turkey than I ever shot. fox are great for keeping the rodent population down.

No good reason not to either... they are a hardy animal and could cause headaches in the right areas
