    I would, but I already perthist a red before all the other different foxes where mentioned.

    My point is some will vote for silver over red just because they like silver over red.

    Yea I don't think it makes a whole lot of difference either. I voted for any.

    Not necessary, I believe it's all about your creativity, for this contest.

    The voting clearly shows that silvers & cross should be allowed. I can also see that this may turn into a bone of contention because there are quite a few folks who just want plain reds. I want this to stay fun, guys. Don't worry about the color, after all they are all Vulpes vulpes... red fox... the same anatomy, the same exact animal. Just have fun putting together your fox. I am using a plain red & I am going to have a blast putting him together and I am looking forward to seeing all of the other entries ;D

    I look at it like this. I've got a red in the freezer, I want to mount for the showroom. This gives me a good excuse. Its all in fun anyway. If I had the extra cash I'd mount both. But right this minute most of my cash is tide up.

    Yes this is going to be alot of fun, this will be a first mount where I will be putting a prey animal in the same sean and making it all flow together.

    Yeah, I too was wondering what he did to that fox, hahaha.

    Hey guys and gals, remember that those silvers are often ranch fox, which means bigger. I never see them mounted very well, as people try to put them on regular sized wild red fox forms. Just a reminder.

    Becky I've got a freezer full of greys. I got permission today to trap a known red hotspot next year so hopefully I'll have alot more reds next year. I only caught 5 this season.

    I'm going to go ahead a say for certain that there will be NO entry fee. If there is a cost for the awards I will cover it. As long as we can all play nice, that is ;D
