    Default fox in St. Paul

    I'm headed out to St. Paul the first of the month and I am wondering if anybody knows what the condition of the foxes are this time of year. Is is worth hunting them? Thanks.

    not worth it, hides are burnt at least, and they could even be shedding...

    Well since fox is closed everywhere now except arctic fox in unit 10 I would say no. It is closed under both hunting and trapping license.

    That's what I'm afraid of. I'll probably take my camera and some calls anyway.

    St. Paul is in GMU 10, but if the hides are hammered I don't plan on shooting them just because I can.

    There's no value in fox hides this time of year, not worth harvesting them.

    It would be a waste

    Since the Island is all private property are you even legally allowed to hunt there without some kind of special permit?
    I spent 2 winters there offloading opies off of crab boats in the late 90's and was under the impression then that the island didn't allow now natives to hunt their land without a special permit.
    I could be wrong so correct me if I am. Just another consideration.
    There were plenty of foxes back then though.

    What kind of fox are there? Just reds........or arctics too? I assume the trapping season is still open, but it must close by april 30? Need a trapping license to shoot them.
    Likely won't get much interest, but could sell a few on the taxidermy market. Sometimes taxi's will want less than full prime furs for scenes............like a spring scene. Not sure how a springy hide would tan up tho.
    I can't help being a lazy, dumb, weekend warrior.......I have a JOB!
    I have less friends now!!
