With regards cages, I would suggest getting a good big trap. The bigger, the better.

I was thinking the same.But they seem to be in short supply.Anyone I have phoned are waiting for stock to be delivered.

The Pest Stop one on here, is a good size trap. Bit pricey, but a very good sturdy trap.

Yeah I ordered the McEoin one earlier but it will be a few days.He is waiting for stock to come nedzer.
Not an ideal place for shooting here Dylan.

Relocate it

Doesn't that just make a problem for someone else?

My fox problem is a result of people two villages away from me relocating foxes near me.I have seen them releasing foxes and feral cats over the years a short distance from where I live.My area went from no foxes to loads of foxes very quickly. I never had a problem with them until now.They always left me alone. What I catch I will relocate back on the doorstep of the people that caused my problem in the first place Joseph.

I had almost pet foxes turn up here a few years ago the only explanation I could think of was that they were urban releases,there has been alot of that here the last few years,there has being pine martin's set free and people spotted releasing buzzards.
