My son had a fox set at the corner of a corn field. No fox tracks around for 1 week +. Checked the set this AM and had a skunk. He sprayed all over the set and trap. But there are fox tracks all around the catch. I thought with all the fox he should place a new dirt hole set 20' away from the catch circle. Hung the trap out behind the shop till next year.
What would you have done or should i have done?
Sons 1st atempt at trapping and i have never trapped.
So far this year:
1 - opossom
3 - coons
1 - skunk

Any help with this set would be a great help.

I would have remade the set...then another on the edge of the circle...then maybe another one or 2 or 6 on the fox trails...

Ive became a believer in multiple traps in 1 good location opposed to numerous tracks in unknown locations...

Happened to me 1 week of nothing and then a skunk and then the fun started 1 coyote and 6 reds later, reset the trap as close to th same as it was before and then add one on the outside of the catch circle the skunk smell will be as good of an attractant as anything you could put there and then be patient!
