I don't to rural fox control, but for the urban one's I find that:-

 

Felix Cat Food and Sliced pig's liver alway's gives good results. The smeller the better.

 

Raw chicken carcases and raw chicken breast meat turning green and smelling is a real appetizing hung up by string over the door release pedal works a treat.

been told KFC Drum Stick. i used rabbit with fur and a chicken with feathers still on, Let us know how your trapping is going? best of luck. p.s. try and not go near or touch the trap to much as they'll smell you.ALB

Rabbits or pheasant that is rotten and full of maggots seems to be what gets the foxes in the trap. Sometimes caught with a few bones and a manky hide where the rabbit carcus has rotted away. The only thing with fish baits and cat food is a higher number of cats caught, and it can effect the numbers of foxes caught.

Put a photo up of your set up

I have access to dead chickens fully feathered,I strip the feathers off like a fox kill scattering them in the cage as a lead up to the cacase.works for me every time especially in this cold weather.

hi there iv been trapping foxes for a few years now and iv had a good number to, i think that the key to catching them is to put plenty of bait out i put a rabbit or pheasent in the back one in the middle and one outside the trap doing this gives the fox confidence to enter the trap. once the bait from outside and middle of the trap has been taken it is only a matter of time before you've caught your fox.
