Fox, Jackal & Badger


The Fox (Vulpes vulpes L.)

The fox is spread in the whole Romanian territory, from mountain side to the Black Sea being well represented by a healthy and numerous populations all over the country. During the wild boar drives or other kind of hunting, shooting foxes is an absolutely normal appearance.

Fox hunting can be done by chasing with dogs at the den by individual hunters using special trained dogs but the most common, successful and beautiful method is to hunt for foxes during the winter time using predator caller. This method of hunt usually takes place during the whole day, starting early in the morning ending late in the evening. It can be done by stalking through the fields or driving by car through the fields in order to locate them easier and faster. The visibility is very good due to the winter conditions. Sunny and freezing days are usually the best ones for amazing successful hunts.

Driven hunts, in places where the fox population is rich, using beaters, dogs and stands, is very successful and challenging fox shooting.

Because it is represented by a rich population and is very destructive for young small game stocks, the foxes need to be kept carefully under control being hunted all year round.
