Wikipedia states "Reynard is a literary cycle of allegorical French, Dutch, English, and German fables largely concerned with Reynard, an anthropomorphic red fox and trickster figure". Probably Reynard and the nearby Fox Range share a common origin.
In 1921, the Nevada State Legislature granted a right of way to John E. Sexton and associates that ran from Reynard northwest to T 37N R 18 E, which is near Duck Lake and the California line. During the first 10 years, operating the line was optional during January, February and March.
