What do you think?

Do you guys think a high caliber pellet gun will kill a grey fox? I have some area's that I just don't trust shooting a 17hmr or 22. Most of my shots will be 20 yards or less.

use a .410 or 20 gauge if your worried about the distance of a rife.

shotgun would be my first choice. Yes, there are some mighty powerful pellet guns out there that would bring down a fox in it's tracks, but they are awfully spendy........

CNY, I deffinetly think it would kill a fox up close. My RWS travels at 1150fps.

CNY the bottomline is it would be easy to wound a fox with a pellet gun, sure you can kill one, close enough with a perfect shot, but I would not try it. In my mind you owe it to the animal to use the right tool for the cleanest, quickest kill.

what about a 22 short ? i would use that before a pellet gun. or like fishermann says a .410 is all you need for close range.

Hey Lee,

I've got to agree, the only air gun I'd use would be one that contains it's air supply via a can and those are expensive. Even the 1600 FPS gamo really isn't enough for a fox at that range regardless of the pellet used, & there are some specially designed ones out there. If you've got a .22, there are some good short or CB loads available. They'd be quiet and not have the distance concerns associated with the other rifles. Got to agree that the .410 is a great choice as well. If you don't have one, call me and you can try mine out. See you on the ice!

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.
