For a week or so the weather seemed to have been keeping the fox holed up. But now after the snow storms have retreated leaving behind a foot and then some of snow the fox have ventured out again.
Today when checking my traps I saw tracks of probably two maybe a few more fox. One set of tracks actually walked on the path a cable restraint was on, but it missed being caught in it. Another set of tracks started up a field road towards another cable restraint only to turn back to the woods.
It was very encouraging to see tracks again, but even more so that my cable restraints seem to be in the right area.
I am considering increasing my number of cable restraints from 6 to 18, another catch would probably help me decided in favor of expanding.
