Justbob,you just suggested to a person to set an illegal trap,don't you know better?A 220 conibear CANNOT be used on a land set in Missouri period.
Bricky,normally a red fox doesn't use a den after pup raising season unless server weather such as ice storm cause it to do so.The fox you saw was probably the young of the year that had not completed dispersal from it's parents.The fox will stay in a smaller area than a coyote would ,so I'd seek out thickets in close proximity of the said den and try calling there.

the one i saw was in late sep. or early oct and was real big.
i watched it for almost a full min. just setting there looking at me and when i moved it shot down the hole.
as i walked about 200 yards away i jumped another one.
about a week later i saw one of them about 100 yards from the hole wile i was bow hunting

when do they have there young ??

Sept & Oct are dispersal time for the canines(fox grey and red and coyotes).If there is plenty of food,the parents will tolerate the young staying around a little more.Fox don't generally have too big of a home range so you have a good chance of calling one up.

I'm not sure about an exit hole....you might just look around and see.

bigjohn is right...I wouldn't focus too much on a den right now, but get after the calling and be ready for a quick shot and them putting the sneak on ya!
