Apparently they are around in my "neighborhood" (not quite suburbia here). I agree I'm happy they are around, but I'd be wary of an encounter although I think they are wary of humans.

I saw a gray fox happily sitting off the side of I-87 while traveling through the Hudson Valley last week! It was about 1-2 hours before sunset, and he was in clear view. Very cool.

Cool.

So, I guess I should start scanning the yard an hour or so before sunset.

Thanks. If I spot one, I'm sure you'll all hear about it.

If you find a good one or know the pros and cons of the ones you've already checked into please feel free to "Start a thread" on the subject.
I TOO would like a better one. My son was able to get the old one going again after it had been knocked over and waterlogged by the deer but it has lost so much of it's screen display I can no longer adjust any of its settings.

While visiting my aunt in Killeen this weekend, we checked on the game camera set up in her yard
And you do not know which kind it was....With quality like that and its night shots in COLOR! It's worth the time giving her a call to find out!

Here's a few shots of the red fox via the Moultrie model

Nightime shots with the moultree are always in black and white

Even your shots make me want one.

The daytime shot is adorable!

I really like playing around with it. Whenever I find a new den I set it up nearby to see what's inhabiting it... There were two fox dens on my property. One at each end...I'd guess from two different families. Pretty weird....Sometimes the fox dens were used and sometimes not.

Concerning the photo that started this thread, my aunt responded to my query as to what kind of game cam it was she used. She said that it was an ordinary Tasco, "the cheapest kind". "That picture was just a very fortunate happenstance", she went on to say. Just the right time, right place, because she hasn't had anymore pictures of the greys since that one beautiful shot.

Thanks for the follow up, scarecrowsdrm.

Great to hear that it is "the cheapest kind", but sad to hear that it was just "very fortunate happenstance". Who knows, maybe we'll all get some lucky shots if we buy one!
