Fox and Go Pro

Just like the title says, see what happens when I put one of the Go Pro cameras down for a few minutes near a red fox.

It definitely gets a bit too curious for my comfort, and am glad it didn't run off with the camera.

No bait, scent, or lure was used at all.

  1. I have a ton of red foxes in my backyard. Well, a ton, as in a mama and two of her pups that always come as a pair. I capture them every night and morning on my trail camera. And I found their den in the woods behind my house, but they aren't using it right now, of course. I also found several deer carcasses in the woods and wondering why they would have chose this specific spot to die or if they were killed or dragged there by other animals.

    1. That's fantastic! I'm interested in any kit pictures (especially in daytime) if you have them. Email some to me at balikbrian@gmail.com if you'd like. As for the deer carcasses, deer do just drop dead in random places, but usually within 100 yards of a road (because they get hit by cars often and limp into the woods). Foxes might be able to drag a fawn, coyotes could drag a medium sized deer, but from what I usually see, animals rip them apart, day and night. They scatter their bones all over the place. Foxes, coyotes, raccoons, and vultures are what I've found to be the most common feeders on deer carcasses.
