Rabbit distress call brings in some young foxes ...

Post by R.J. » Sun Jun 29, 2008 5:10 pm

Was out for a walk on one of the farms , yesterday after work .. trying to thin out some ground hogs .

Saw some young fox about 150 yards down the bush edge ... had a rabbit distress call in my vest , so I hunkered into some cover and gave it a whirl !

One came in to approx 40 yards ... ( they aren't the same fox pups I photgraphed earlier in the seasn , unless they travelled 120 km's and got South of the 401 ! :lol: )

Image

Then sat staring into the cover as I did light mouth sqeeks ...

Image

Then it's sibling came in ... they looked damp from the wet cover .. and hungry .

Image

They eventually came right in to under 5 yards ...

Image

Then the smallest one made a dash near my boot and scooted off to my right when it figured I wasn't " small game " :lol: ... the other jumped back and I got one more frame , before it disappeared into the bush .

Image

A cool Photo Opportunity !

Next cool photo op ... was these turkey vultures ..

They dropped in one at a time ... 8 total .

Image

Image

Then they walked ! , yes walked up the bank , to spread wings and cool off in the breeze ... ( see the one a the base starting up , with the others coming single file ) ... looked like a flock of turkeys ! :lol:

Image

Image

I came down the fenceline from another angle to get one last frame before they flew off ...

Image

Heading out in about 1 hour to check on some velvet bucks ... They have been coming out late though .... but can't get pictures sitting at home ! :lol:

Great pics (as usual)!
Sometimes the foxes can really be fools when it comes to a predator call.
