Today I got a good look a trail of red fox tracks.
Where a back foot stepped in the same place as the front foot.
This is likely the same fox I’m getting on trail cam, and because these tracks were just yards away from one of my camera, I made sure I put out some more red fox urine near the camera.
I’m running low on red fox urine, so I’m going to have to buy some more. Red foxes will be in throes of their mating season in just a few weeks, so fox urine will get the attention of any breeding dog fox in the area.
Red foxes are the low dogs on the totem pole. Coyotes kill them, and gray foxes drive them out their territories. So red fox urine can attract those two species as well.
The first time Miley got a good smell of red fox urine, she rolled in it!
So it’s obviously attractive to canids.
I hope to get some decent photos of some red foxes now, but there are no guarantees.
For all I know, I’ll probably get a bear!
