Fox hunting in winter

The Fox in Russian forests is one of the most common animals. It is found in the Central part of the country and even in Kamchatka. Its fur is valuable for the production of fur coats and other products. Especially valuable is the skin of a Fox caught in winter – this fur is thicker, and, as a rule, Golden-red color. Fox hunting in winter is officially allowed from September to March. During this time, you can use different ways to hunt this animal-from the approach, from the paddock, with semolina or dogs. The Fox is a nocturnal predator. In close time of day it hunts mice-voles, and during the day it lies somewhere in the shade or a hollow.

Winter Fox hunting from the approach requires special care and observation. The Fox is a very careful animal, and it does not cost anything to deceive an inexperienced hunter. Going on such a hunt, you should wear a camouflage camouflage suit, and if there is snow, then-white. In winter, it is easier to calculate the tracks of a Fox in the snow and find the trails that it uses. Usually, the Fox uses standard routes to the places of fattening. For hunting a Fox, it is best to use a small-caliber rifle – its strength is enough to kill the animal, and not too damage its valuable skin.

For hunting a Fox in winter, it is good to use a decoy. The main food of foxes is mice, so luring a predator to a squeak is very effective. You need to start making mouse sounds when the predator is running across the field – that is, it went out to feed. When you notice that the animal is heading in your direction, you need to stop squeaking and get ready to shoot. As a rule, you need to shoot for sure, because the Fox is a very nimble and fast animal, and even a serious, but not fatal wound, will not make it stop, but on the contrary, will increase its speed tenfold.

If you want to go to the Fox with dogs, then you need to be careful – not every dog will go to this animal. It is better to choose brisk-mink, such as dachshunds or Fox Terriers. Huskies are also suitable, but they need to be specially trained for Fox hunting.
