The first case involves the implementation of a specific list of actions, such as searching predator, tracking down and untangling his tracks, and rendezvous with the beast. In this case, the distance of a shot it is closer with the beast is not so sure. Enough to lay low for position when the wind blows on the hunter and start to beckon squeak mouse or a wounded hare. The great Fox hears the squeak of the mouse at a distance of more than five hundred meters, and in the cold and quiet day, even at a distance of about one kilometer. However, such a great sound gives the predator the ability to not less clearly to identify fake. Do not try to lure a Fox with semolina with a distance of 150-250 meters. To attract the best in one go, giving out by using semolina from a few sounds in a row. Even if the animal does not respond to the beeps, does not mean that he does not hear. After some time, the animal will get distracted from their classes, would raise his head and headed towards the sound of semolina. If after a few minutes the animal did not react to the decoy, the sound can be repeated.
