Gray fox or Red Fox???

I am from VA & I have taken 2 gray foxes while in my deer stand this year. I have been hunting for a long time & never even saw a fox before while hunting. This is my new property though & it does have a lot of wetland on the property, along with turkeys, squirrels & rabbits.

Does anyone know which is more rare? The RED or the GRAY fox?

We don't have any Grey fox in Colorado. We do have some Red, Kit and Swift fox though.

[=18]REDRIDER[/size]--Thanks! Did you say---mostly REDS were where you are?

[[=18]size=7]HIKER----Thanks for the response--it is nice to find out what other states have.

To those who do not know, a gray fox is not completely gray--the have red heads--like a red fox, with gray bodies & a black streak on the tail.

Reds are red, with a little white on the body.

Foxes

I live in north carolina and around here the more rare of the 2 are the red foxes. Grey foxes are more populated in the southest than anywhere else in the world.
