Is the fox scream by foxpro any good? I only have a fox in distress on my foxpro and I put the fox scream on there because I went out at sundown. I did a few stands on the last stand we set up sat down we heard a fox scream so I played lucky bird stopped it the fox screamed again then we heard another fox scream. But nothing came in so whats a good fox call by foxpro?

I have the same thing happen often. I pretty much stopped getting excited when I hear fox sounds because every time I hear something respond to the call nothing comes in. And I do not believe I have ever heard a "warning bark" just Yips and communication (barks and howls) between two critters. Good wind and everything, they have never come out after vocalizing. Maybe someone will fill us in here...

Have you tried a pup distress or screamin grey fox...have had them come into that after hanging up on the bird sounds...or try vole squeaks if you know they're close

i use foxpro's arctic fox sound and it has worked seems like it either brings out their curiousity or challenges them to a brawl..................but only done this with greys not sure about reds

Yea I tried the distress ones but I was thinking its mating season there is no pups theres yearlings. So I didnt think they would respond to it just like deer after a few months fawn bawls dont work. I'll have to cheack out the arctic fox sound.

cm20 I have used Red pup distress and never had one come in on it, i have used it after hearing responses like i described in my previous post and it seems to make them a little more vocal in the beginning then after a little while I don't hear from them.

Note: a lot of these examples are on public ground with extra "spooky" critters, could have a lot to do with it.

Also can somebody explain screamin grey fox, what does it mean to an approaching or wondering fox. What is the result of playing it and when (after prey distress/ after you hear them vocalize/ after pup distress/ etc.). Also, I have mostly reds around here how will they react to the grey sounds?

Try rabbit distress or jack rabbit distress calls. I've had success with baby rabbit and also the JS grey fox and the scream n grey also the Steeltown grey. It sounds like you were busted though. That stuff happens
