Cabled my first Grey Fox (pic added)

I finally cabled a grey fox this morning. My first ever with a cable restraint. I caught it back at the hips though, I had it set for red fox at 8" X 8". Do you guys think the cable should be set smaller for Greys since they are smaller than reds? At what size do you think it should be set for greys? All help is appreciated.

Re: Cabled my first Grey Fox

My experience has been that greys try to jump through the hoop when it's set at 8" X 8" and you get a lot of hip catches. I typically set a 7" loop just over 6" off the ground when I'm targeting grey fox. I've had much better luck this way, and I've caught reds with this setup also.

6&6 for greys. I use 7" loop 7-8" up for reds, and I also cabled a grey today, by its hips, in a 7" loop. He was docile and let me pick him up, and believe it or not, let him go to be called in another night. About 500yds from my front door.
