This is the red fox that likes to hang around out home. Around 6:30 PM most evenings he is in our yard checking out everything and has come within 15 feet of me. I guess he is checking me out too! He is absolutely beautiful, these pictures don’t really show his colors very well.
He also hangs out on our driveway where I put out corn for the turkey.
Off he goes looking for food!!
Trails cameras are a lot of fun and you never know what you have on the pictures, great for security too.
I wish these pictures had been during the daylight so we could see their beautiful red colors and their huge fluffy red tails! The smaller ref fox has a lot of black on his legs.
Check out my other trail cam photos!

Yesterday afternoon I decided to move my Reconyx trail camera further into the woods along a trail where I had spotted a Red Fox just last week. I set out two stadium cup full of whole corn and a cup of birdseed.
The first night at this location I ended up with over 100 pictures. I picked out a few pictures to share, two different Red Fox and a huge Coyote! 🙂 Notice the time stamp on all the pictures!
There were two different Red Fox last night. Notice that the first three pictures are the same red fox, this one does not have any black on his legs.
The next three pictures are of a Coyote, he came by two hours after the first red fox. Notice the time on all the pictures.
Typical of coyotes, he has a bushy, black-tipped tail, yellow eyes, long pointed ears and a long muzzle.
The last couple pictures is of another red fox, notice that this one has a lot of black on his legs. He also appears to be smaller in size.
After this fox, there was nothing buy raccoons the rest of the night.

Yesterday afternoon, I decided it was time to check my trail camera for pictures. There were a lot of pictures on the Sandisk memory card, raccoons, red fox, possum, ground hogs, squirrels, birds, shunk, deer, turkey and coyote.
Here are a few pictures of the Red Fox! The picture just before the red fox there were a couple raccoons in that area! I think he smells the raccoons!
One evening a couple weeks ago I was filling my birdfeeders and I had a beautiful Red Fox walk up within 4-5 feet of me. He was a beautiful red and gray color and I am sure he was looking for food. He just stood there for 2-3 minutes, didn’t seem scared at all and then he walked away back into the woods. I wonder if it is the same fox in these trail cam pictures?
Notice the time stamp on the pictures, after about 6 pictures around 5:36 PM, he returns again at 5:47 PM

We have alot of Red Fox that roam the moutain, many of them we will see in the evening just before sunset. Here are two pictures of red fox that my Reconyx Hyperfire HC600 trail camera caught the last day of October this year around 10:42 PM. The pictures are seconds apart, be sure to double click the pictures to see a full view.
The lights you see in the back ground is our driveway gate.
As I hike the mountain around our home I am always on the lookout for fox and coyote dens but I have not found any yet. I am sure there are more than one fox den becuase I have seen at least seven different red fox. If you have never seen a red fox they are really beautiful animals. They are the size of a large dog with a beautiful red fur with cream color on the underside. The Winter fur is dense, soft, silky and relatively long.
The red fox is not always the classic red color. There are many different phase and color variations which give the red fox many different names such as the black fox, the silver fox, cross fox, the samson fox and there are also albinos. Occasionally we will see a gray fox but only about 2-3 times a year.
Be sure to check some of the letters and emails from wonderful people who have purchased from me.
Since we live on a mountain surrounded by thousands of acres of wilderness, I decided to set up a trail cam so that I could get pictures of all the wildlife around us. So far we have pictures of wild turkey, deer, red and gray fox, coyotes, possum, ground hogs and raccoons. There is more wild turkey this year than past years.

Years past you would hardly see any turkey, that’s when we had a lot of coyotes. There are not so many coyotes now, not sure if someone killed them or they just moved on. Anyway, I am glad they are gone for now.
We have a black bear that shows up occasionally to raid the bird feeders but I have not been able to get him on camera yet. I had saw him a couple of times, yep, it was male and he was huge. Love all the wildlife!
I have a Reconyx Hyperfire trail camera, it takes great pictures. This trail camera gets everything that walks in front of it.
