Ever since I got a grey fox I've wanted a red one. I've never hunted a place that had them on it, until now. Although I heard they were in this area I hadn't paid much attention to it because I'd never seen one and no one had ever gotten one, at least not the guys hunting here now to my knowledge. This is my second year on the lease and there are still parts of it I've never seen so this past Thursday on the way back to camp I decided to walk the back fence line. While walking it I came upon this...

Wow, now I know they are on the lease! I looked at this one a moment to try and figure out how he got caught in the wire fence and still can't figure it out. I know now I've got a chance however slim it might be. I got up this morning, got in my stand well before daylight and for some reason all morning getting a red fox was on my mind, The morning hunt was great. I saw quite a few deer but never a shooter. I climbed out of my stand and started walking back to camp and I went down the power line right of way. As I was walking I jumped up three deer and they ran across in front of me a little more than 100 yards in front. I stopped walking and looked around. I then started walking but slower this time. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a glimpse of orange and I knew it was unusual so I stopped and tried to make out what it was and I just couldn't so I pulled my rifle off my shoulder and looked through the scope and there it was...at first I wasn't certain it was a fox because I couldn't get a look at its face but then it turned and I knew. I flicked the safety off and squeezed the trigger and he never moved! I wish I'd had a smaller caliber but my 6.5X55 did its job. Here's a pic of the red fox I got this morning. I'm not sure how I'm gonna have it mounted. It is a beauty!
