SUCCESS AT LAST!
By Mike Hilts



well, we headed out around 8 at night .pretty decent conditions over all....around 40 degrees and calm.pretty dark out but thats where the million candle power light comes in real handy!! first spot we set up right in the middle of a field playing the wind to our advantage.the two of us layed right down in the snow facing the hedgerow and wood lot.about 3 minutes into the calling those bright red eyes caught our attention as they came bouncing into the field. He would not stop for a shot as he ran to get down wind of the "screaming rabbit"(and us,unfortunitely!) needless to say, he winded us and never did stop! oh well...so we then went down the road and set up looking into two fields split by a narrow hedgerow.first few minutes of calling provided no action but those "red eyes" became visible across the field as our tape came to the end.so there we were with the fox held up in the hedgerow about 80 yards out (and out of eyesite i might add!) and we had no more sounds to offer him as our mouthcalls were home(naturally!!)and as the tape player laid 30 yards out in front of us in the snow.so i quickly "puckered" my lips and made that kissing sound which seemed to work as it brought the fox out into the crosshairs of jeffs 22 mag.success!!! a nice lung shot !! He took us across a couple small fields before we finally found him.what a blood trail in the snow I might add!!!
