    I like foxes, but then, I don't have any small edible critters around here. ;) We have a number of red foxes that roam around Bayou View Subdivision and most here love seeing them; they have been blamed for a few missing critters, but everybody's gotta eat! My critter is too big for them to fool with.

    I don't turkey hunt, so I like seeing foxes. We have a few, but not like coyotes.

    I like 'em too... but if he shows up in my yard, he's a potential "reactive" target.

    I can tell you, there ain't much reaction to a 12 gauge with 00. They tend to just drop in place.

    That's a pretty one. Healthy. Let the little fella be. A red fox is a sign of a healthy ecosystem. They will not hang around in an area that has too many coyotes.

    Coyotes on the other hand, shoot em. They don't belong here.

    Not sure here in Mis. Where I am from that would be a grey sided red. Our reds have very little to no grey on them and our greys have little to no red on them

    Tracing the line of his tail back it appears to have a black tip

    So, ya see, a grey fox and a red fox, had a plate of spaghetti and both ended up eating from the ends of the same noodle, and things just...happened after that...and a gred fox kit was born.



    [I don't even wanna know what happened after the "reenactment", I suspect that may be where werewolves come from or something].

    I was always told as a child that the greys were much bigger than the reds. That's not true. Mississippi foxes are almost exactly the same size. The reds are a red/white pattern with little if any grey. The greys are red/grey/white with mostly grey. I didn't know that about the tip of the tail though.
