Caught him in a Bridger 1 1/2.
I was using my homemade bait and some pepperoni.
I used beaver and muskrat lure.
The reason I trapped him was because him or another fox was getting into our chicken tractors and killing and/or eating our chicks.

Now you've gone and done it, you left the biggest kept secret out on what bait to use for fox. Congratulations on catching it. Don't tell anyone about anchovies.

Good job young man! Like others have said, I'm not too old to remember my first one too! I was 12 when I caught my first, and a coyote the next day in the same trap! Memories!

Good job kid!
I remember my first fox, beautiful red and big ole Male too. Had two coyotes also that day but the first red really sticks out in my memory. I was always amazed at how something that orange and colorful laying in the bed of a pickup didnt seem so bright and colorful when I laid it down on the dead winter grass and oak leaves next to our home. It was more Camo'd than that it appeared, nature has a great way of putting creatures in places where they do the best. Coyotes blend in well in tall dead grasses, foxes look like they do well in a forested oak leaf floor in fall.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Nice job MySide! He won't be eating anymore of your chickens and you have a great memory to look back on for years to come. Good job!


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.
