Went out and called under the bright moon and got this nice Cross Fox on the first stand. I had called this area before and was always skunked in the past. I setup a bit different and made extra sure to hide in the dark shadows and have the rifle ready, and aimed where the speaker was pointed. After 7 minutes of FoxPro Snowshoe distress, I heard something to my left in the willows. Then, I saw a flash of dark ear go flying by me about 35 yards out in front of me at a 45 degree to my left down in the grass. I was sitting up on a higher plateau and this Fox was running along the drop/cut-bank. I saw his back again about 20 yards after I saw the ear and knew he was going to get my scent if he went much farther. He was cruising pretty quick and when he popped out to where I could get a shot, I gave it to him. I hit low behind his front legs and he dropped instantly (visible in picture below). Then, to my surprise, he did a hot-rod move and plowed away from me with his rear legs. I gave him another quick shot from the 22mag 30gr V-max to the O-ring and dropped him. I hit him low on the front right leg and it clipped his lower ribcage, splitting his hide. After skinning him out though, the hole won't even be noticeable after I have him turned into a nice little rug. That's my first Cross Fox and the first I've called in over 4 years I think. Anyways, thought this might be a motivator for all those people doing the night hunts. Be ready, the action can be quicker than you think when it all happens.
