  • A Fox Is Digging Up Mt Tomatoes.

    I bed the hole with chicken litter and bone meal and the stinky little bastages keep digging my 'mater bushes up.

    Last night i set out some hot dog weenies with poison and some others on a kevlar leader and a treble hook. All of the bait was gone this morning when I checked so tonight I'm going with a smaller treble hook. He ought to be there in the morning waiting for his breakfast .22 short.

    .22 short will just pi** him off. I'd be using a WSM from the porch. Happy hunting.

      Not if you feed him a whole bowl full for breakfast.

        Yeah, the 22 Mag flavor will give him his minimum daily requirement of Pb. Woldnt want him to not get all of his vitamins and minerals for a well rounded diet to go with them "maters. I think you are a great guy for considering his nutritional needs in such a kind and caring way!!!!! Hee Hee, too funny.

        Big nasty scar, no kidneys, so you think you got issues?

          I prefer 'quality' not 'quantity' myself. I like.22's for comp target and popp'in tin cans but that's about it. I've dropped a few whistle pigs with my .22 Ruger carbine but it's been with Hyper velocity cartridges.

          I can't see having the varmit suffer and look like a shower head leaking all over the garden when one hit does the trick.

            I haven't caught them yet but all I have to do is look for the harelipped foxes to know which ones have been in my garden. Three times the treble hooks have been robbed of bait and the hooks show signs of having done damage to the thief.

            Ill listen for them to bark and I'll know them when I hear them say Mark Mark Mark!

              I wish I had a fox in the garden. My problem is with live chipmunks that the cats bring in and dump inside. I did drop a Northern Tool catalog off the 2nd floor landing and bop one the other morning at 6:30 a.m., but it just made him get up and scurry off.

                In this house, the NT catalog resides in the bathroom along with Atlantic, the AMA monthly and various other catalogs of unparalleld interest.

                I'd never drop it out the window (on purpose) that is.....

                    Mix some warfarin rat poison into the bait. If da hook don't get them they die anyway.

                      Hey Monkeywrench, The Wafarin is a No No, I need it for anti clot meds. If you give it to them greedy Foxes, I wont have enuf!! And it would take quite a bit to kill a fox. Not so much for a rat or mouse. Just kidding, but I do take wafarin for clotting control, it is a 4000 year old cure and the best possible way to control a clotting issue with the fewest side effects. When they discovered it was good for use in humans, they had already slowed use in animals due to a risk of ingestion by human children. The chinese use that in addition to colchicine for relief of Gout pain and swelling. Them little yeller rascals are pretty smart in some stuff afterall. I got an old country doc who uses the old treatments, and I think I do better side effect wise because of it. BAck to the OP. Any luck thinning the heard yet? Wont be long and it wont matter, cause 'maters will be done and taters will be comin in.

                        Break up glass in a cloth sack (or heavy sock)...you want lots of little slivers...mix well into ground beef...(use forks, not fingers). you should see big blood trails in the morning. Cruel, but effective...I had a couple large, very smart, bait-shy rats that went for this. Any pets in the area will also be attracted, so do not even consider if you have them around...You will end up sued and prosecuted.

                          That is kinda obvious Having Foxes or other wildlife going around sh!tting bloody crap with a hint of glass slivers. Then you may have to contend with the law. By the way what type of laws are out there for the wildlife.?? Because there's no need to solve one problem and start another one for yourself maybe even worst than the wildlife. That's if this thread isn't being staked out already. I know in Florida there is wildlife that is protected by law and if you kill one it better be around your throat and you killed it in self defence.

                              The old pan of antifreeze trick is nice too. Put next to some salty meat bait, and the problem may quench its thirst.
