Pulled in from 97 and headed straight to camp. Stopped the PU and immediately saw a mature fox steadily moving away from the PU. Went to go under a cabin, stopped, quickly backed up, arched his back and stood his hair all on end. Bobcat under the cabin stealthily walked off. We drove around, saw the cat again for a second and then saw the fox following with arched back and hair on end. Fox later returned to camp where he must feel comfortable when we are not there and that’s fine by me.

Hunted 14 years in Bee County on the Medio Creek and now on my 19th year in NE Lasalle County and have never before seen a fox at either place. This one was quite healthy and much larger than the smaller variety I am used to seeing in the Hill Country.

No, it was grey. Did have kind of a reddish coyote scruff around the neck.

It's interesting in the town of Olney there are grey foxes everywhere. My ranch is six miles west. Myself and my neighbors have ever seen a fox of any kind on camera or while out driving or hunting. Just coyotes and bobcats. I'd rather have foxes than yotes.


Distance is not the issue, but the winds can make it interesting!

I would love to have some foxes around here, got plenty of yotes and some bobcats (missed a shot on one 3 days ago, misjudged distance).

they would be the fattest lil foxes in the state I have no doubt, we have way too many field mice and rats around.

Just another food source for them that also competes with them for food. had lots of fox behind the house and for several years saw mom gray fox and kits often. then started getting more coyote pics and fox numbers have gone way down. No pics of the reds since the yotes showed up. one or two gray still hang around but not in the numbers we had.

for a long time we had no coyotes around home in Mississippi and lots of gray and red fox. Coyotes moved in and rarely ever see any reds and not that many grays anymore.

I can close my eyes, throw a rock, and hit a grey fox here. I need to get a pic of my Ranger fox. At night he sits in the driver's seat with his paws on the steering wheel like he owns it.
