I have taken red fox in a Duke's DP and all of them have been young of the year fox. Use a push pull DP.

Targeting fox while eliminating dogs is tough. Your best bet is caging them if youíre worried about dogs.

Never caught fox before but iv been told you can catch them by setting steel on a stump or bale of hay down wind from a bait pile they'll get up on something down wind to look/smell it out before going up to the pile dog will run straight in also a flat rock on your pan in a creek with lure or bait out a little further they'll step on the rock instead of running straight in the water

Iím interested in this as well. I have permission to trap where I know there is a grey fox and raccoons (trail cams) but Iím restricted to cages for sure. I havenít asked about dpís yet.

The elevated trap idea is interesting.

Iíve ordered a couple of DVDís by some guy named Truman but havenít received them yet wink

Come On GUYS ! ! ! Use your game cam to see what interest you get from a dog repelling fox attractant (lure or bait). There are some foot trap sets that are "resistant but not proof" so use the cams or check the archives for suggestions (and qualify the source, please LOL).................. the mike

best things i have tried is putting trap real close to hole so to miss most dogs & using fruit type bait or lure.
