Yeah, we call them in too, tons of foxes, which we kill a lot of them, but yotes....yeah yotes hang up out of range a LOT!

They are also tough critters, we've wounded several with no recovery. Sucks. (yotes I mean) foxes we drop stone dead w #4's. Yotes have absorbed T shot and kept going.

Foxes seem to come to any sound though, seriously. Yotes, way tougher to call in and get in range.

We've used the following decoys:

White feather tied to fishing line, glued inside the nock of an old arrow shoved in the ground. Blows around in a slight breeze.

I altered an icefishing tipup to have real rabbit fur on it and used a fishing reel with line to control the flopping flailing fake rabbit on a spring. I LOVED that one....but it was a pain in the butt to keep line untangled and operate.

Mojo critter...awesome.

At night it doesn't seem to matter even though they can see well, but daytime it's definitely helpful.

Matty did you get a yote yet. I know you said you were trying hard. I have found during turkey season coyotes seem dumb. I could have killed a few already.
I spent most of my money on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.

No my friend has a few now, but I couldn't hit a waterbuffalo standing still, let alone a fox or coyote on the move. LOL
I miss a lot! So I know how to call them in!

I've had two coyotes under 10 yards...one almost stepped on me. They are alive and well last time I saw them.

I need hand grenades or something.

Next one close enough is getting butt-stocked!

My buddies in Ohio are hunting coyotes hard right now , as stated shooting a ton of fox, but no coyotes.
Now everytime a show like predator nation comes on he keeps saying how good those guys really are , to even be getting the amount of shots , and the dogs they are harvesting

Ten yards is close. Try shooting with your eyes open:D They seem to appear out of thin air. I normally end up shooting due to fear.:) Maybe with a liitle girl screaming to follow it up.

The last fox i shot was on the run which was pretty darn cool. I am going to try to get out at least 2 times this week to see if I can get anything at a newer property of mine. Mu buddy has a decoy but the ground has been too darn frozen to put it in so hope this week will work out.

Don't rub it in. LOL

I might as well just swing my gun like a club.

I've been so frustrated at times, that many nights I will just call for other guys and not bring a gun. What's the point of burning up ammunition if it's only hitting the ground and surrounding brush!?:rofl:

I tell my friends that I like to make it fair, so I fire a warning shot first. But the truth is I :censored: suck.:banghead::crazylol:

I'd take a look at the Kill Lights, I use the XLR250 and it's pretty phenomenal!

Definitely worthwhile to grab the neoprene halo guard too if you get one! :up:

Matty,

what light set-up are you using?  Are you using a sight?

 

I have a sniper hawg light or is it hog light?...mini. 

 

I also have a cheaper light, the name escapes me, surefire maybe? but it's just like the sniper mini, same size, same batteries...just not quite as bright but good enough and WAY CHEAPER. I wear that on my head and use the sniper light on my gun.

 

Just use the open sights on the gun, no scopes or anything.

 

Usually everything happens so fast I just don't do what I'm supposed to do. I rush and make poor shots. Maybe a little too fast paced for me, I don't shoot guns much, so I'm not used to that quick of a shot. These things come screaming in....

Those are great lights too Matty.

I started off with the big ol' LightForce lights, but man they were cumbersome to carry around.  The smaller lights are definitely way easier and just as effective!
