    Strange sight while Deer Hunting in Z12

    Yesterday while out in the afternoon, I had a FOX come through barking the entire time, now while that is not so unusual, there was a second fox coming from behind me making a screeching screaming sound that I never heard before, then from my left came a group of turkeys running which I assume were being circled by the two fox, just as they went by a 3rd fox came by quite on the trail of the turkeys. It appeared that the fox were PACK hunting those turkeys, It was the strangest thing I ever seen in my 60 plus years hunting. I never seen fox hunt together and the screaming sound the one fox made I have never heard before it was almost like THE SOUTH JERSEY BOYS driving deer yelling YO BUCK

    I though I have seen it and heard it all in the woods after 35 years of hunting. I had the pleasure of hearing a mating call from a raccoon up close walking out of the woods in dark. I almost fell over , scared the living crap out of me.

    I’ve heard fox screaming before but never saw them pack hunting. 2 years ago when my son was 10 we heard them in the dark while setting up to turkey hunt. It scared the crap out of him. Hahaha

    I think it's mating season right now for fox so they may be rutting.
    I would imagine a fox wouldn't make a peep if it's hunting anything.

    A fox screaming at night is a scary sound. Sounds like a woman being murdered in the woods. Even if you know what it is, you'll stop moving and hope whatever it is it goes away before it finds you.
