Thread: Kodiak fox calling

  1. #1

    Default Kodiak fox calling

    Devoted two full days of an 8 day deer hunt to calling critters. The two silver's came in together, partner got the big male and left the other for me. Had a great time, my absolute favorite place to call predators.

    Default What gun

    Hey what gun did you use? I was at Zacher Bay last November. Saw several fox but had a 30.06 Thought I'd make a mess of them so I held off. Kodiak is amazing. See any bears?

    Mornings and evenings before 10am and after 3pm seemed best. I was shooting a .243 win with an 80grn fmj for fox. Partner had a .223 we saw one brownie but had no issues with them.

    The deer hunting was pretty good too.

    Hey man, guess you finally got that thing sighted in! Looks like a nice trip. Give a call when you get a chance, I'd like to here about it. Also let me know if you are interested in some more trigger time. Of course you'll need a little more patience around these parts. Later.

    They look like Great foxes. That one big silver looks like a brute! Was this off the road system? We've done some calling off the road, but its never very good. Maybe cause of the time of year we go.

    The big silver is the size of some of my coyotes and fat as can be. The best one I've seen yet.

    This was not on the road system, I'm sure you'll understand if I dont name the bay we where at but its been my experience that any of the salmon streams are loaded up with fox's too.

    foxes are pretty easy to find on most of kodiak, even the road system. while your dressin a deer, you can easily spot a fox within shooting range waitin for its chance to dine on the carcass....i would not advise waiting around for very long on behalf on the brown bears....i have seen a brownie come across a valley from 4 miles away to get to my deer carcass as i was dressing it.....they come fast. when i was about 300 yards from my carcass all the boned out meat on my back, i turned around to look, and he was on it. they sure dont waste time....back on the topic at hand.....we have watched as many as 20 foxes watching us at a time. at nite we would run the foxpro for a while, then shine a red light down the beach....never less than 3 sets of eyes. kodiak is a fun place for sure

    Plumber,
    In that photo with the deer racks is the one a set of sheds? did the buck shed after you shot him?

    Congrats on the foxes! I didn't see any when I was there in Late sept. Jealous!

    This week last year I was at Zachar Bay Lodge. My first trip to Kodiak. It was an amazing experience. Congrats on the success.
