I got one a few weeks ago.. Didn't think much about it at the time but now I kinda wish I did get it tanned.. Wasn't thinking I guess.. Guess I didn't figure it to be very rare. I'm pretty new to trapping though.. Anybody else catchin em with white feet?

In the early 80's my step dad caught an albino female, and later a white footed male. He had them bred by a vet and ended up having 3 litters of all white pups.
They gained such attention that he started bottling lures under the brand "White Fox" lures. I still have quite a few bottles of "Curiosity #2" and "Fox Food Lure #4" that I use every year.

That's interesting about the breeding Fairchild. Very interesting to me. Within a quarter mile of where I caught that white footed fox, a guy I went to high school with claims he saw an albino fox this summer.. I kinda shrugged it off when he told me since the last time I checked he was still "taking trips without leaving the farm"... I have no doubt he "saw" a white fox....lol
But maybe there's something to his story after all. If the genetics are there, the albino fox could be as well..

Hern, I have a fox like that in the freezer, caught by another trapper down this way in MD. It's skinned and tanned for a full mount, and of my personal possession.

I also caught a really neat female red who had white on I think 3 feet, a snowball tail, and a white blotch patch on the belly. She's also tanned in the freezer for a future mount. You likely saw the pics of her on here- that was back in 2006 or 2007 I think.

I think it was last season, someone at taxi-net sold a grey fox with a white blaze on it's face. Now that was neat!

ftw, over the years, I have caught several 'white footed' Reds, in 4 different counties. Odd, yes, but they get skun, dried and sold with the others. No special treatment.

Got one like that 2 years ago, got it tanned for my son. Had grey under the chin and white tipped tail, the rest was red. Biggest fox I caught all season.
