Sorry to hear about your mates passing. Bet He would be happy with u putting it to good use. Bloody nice looking rifle. 308 is a great all round deer cartridge. Just not quite as good as 30-06 ;)

Nice pics BigPete...!

I particularly like the first pic...thats a fine looking mature fox there, & thats a bludy nice looking rifle-i really like that timber.. :thumbsup:

Since starting my tanning fur fettish its interesting seeing the different markings on foxes & wish i could have one or 2 from down your way...!!
(Not a hint, just a statement :) )

There is a blood line on a farm.i bowl them over on that has some great black markings, & another with some slate grey colour around the neck...
Yet on another farm the fur pattern is quite subtle & non interesting.

Yea i know...simple things/simple minds... :lol:

I never really noticed the subtle differences until tanning the furs.

Nice pics... :thumbsup:

That's funny you say that Stix...
The first one had the worst pelt of all of them,and was probably the youngest....

Fair enuf...
I can only see the pics...you held it in real life.

So your saying the first fox is younger than the second one (in order of your pics)...?

Yes & no...
I can see he's not a 'large' fox going by size in relation to the rifle...and it also depends on what you call 'mature' (& note i said 'mature'-not 'old')...i understand they only live up to 5 or so years, & so with hunting & baiting i consider a 3yr old fox "old".

I call a mature fox one that is breeding/or capable of.

And as for the pic, its the proportions of the fox that tell my its 'mature'.

The width of its 'cheeks'-boys dont fill out like that while young/pups-even when full height/size, rather they usually long slender heads until they get more 'manly'.

Also the tails dont usually bush out like that when young...that comes with maturity too...& the tail on that one is (clearly looks) as wide as its upper hind leg--thats not a pup by any stretch...!!

But im not here to argue with you, if you call it young/the youngest, thats ok by me...!
i just made an observation in comment to your post.

Had a pretty crap week so felt the need to go for a walk to find some personal space. Almost back to the car and bumped a hare out of the grass, he bound away but made the mistake of stopping about 100-110 m away. Dogs will be happy for a couple of days......
