Does a catch pole work as well on a gray fox as it does on a bobcat?

Tap on the nose with the trowel and foot stomp method works much faster.

What JTrapper said. Tap em tween the eyes then step on their heart, hard. No blood, no gunshot. You can knock em out and turn em loose this way too.

When you say tap, how hard do you mean. Like 6 - 8 inches above the nose and swack em?

I use a half a shovel handle ....one to stun,one right behind the ears.....one more on the throat....no blood, no suffering, and real real quick.

I'd never stun an animal to turn it loose....real dumb idea.
