I prefer to wait til later in the season (I'm a predator caller first, trapper second). The fur simply isn't prime early on. I don't like killing fox until the second week of November at least. JMO.

We have lots of trappers and fox here in chester/lancaster county, I know several guys that start in October. I agree fur isnt prime, but if a guy can catch 50 the first week and lock up the farms for the season,,,it pays off.

Re: who all is starting on fox opening day?

I learned my lesson this past season. We had that October snowstorm when about 8 inches of snow fell and thought that would be great to get traps out! Well, I caught 2 coon in a couple of fox sets and they sold at the NAFA auction for $4.00 and were listed as early unprime skins. The later coon sold at $15.00 each. My traps will be out no sooner than November 15 this year.

The horizon is your starting point.

Re: who all is starting on fox opening day?

caught most of my fox before thanksgiving last year and averaged 40 for reds and 28 for greys. its more about time and having fun than money for me. if i have time i set if not i try to make time later when hides are better but i don't get hung up on it. '

Now your diggin' where the 'tators are!

This was a week before the season started. Almost 30.00 worth of junk. I'll start on the opener.
