Got my first red fox! This is my first season trapping, and at least 1 red was my goal after catching a few beavers. Anyone have good resources on skinning these things out, anything I should know about em? Thanks! Also thank you for all the info on this forum, it definitely helped me with this catch.

Congratulations, getting it in the snow would be extra special.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

First time catch any thing is memorable no matter how old you are when started trapping.
Fox were always my favorite.
And in the snow. Way to go!

Congrats! The first one is the toughest.

Quite a catch considering the weather we had today.

Pretty thin skinned. Go slow. Try not to jerk the hide real hard. It's pretty easy to rip the hide on those reds. whistle

Well done.
I also remember the first fox I caught,also in deep winter snow.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Wow u caught him n the snow, too cool. Congrats, I mounted my first red as it took several years going thru Gray's and coyotes before I ever found one. This year caught 3xs reds vs. Grays on same land its funny how it's different over the years
