^ At least you got SOMETHING last night!!! I was at my relos on 600 acres and didn't get the opportunity to take even one fox. A hare was it for the whole night.
It'll shoot the fleas off a dog's back at five hundred yards, Tannen, and it's pointed straight at your head!

Sorry, DIDDUMS, the fox's right rear leg at the joint looks like it's been injured - caught in a fence, trap etc...

Could have been, it did seem to run fine when I sent the first one over its head.

Its getting closer...

The wee ones 'll be zipping across in front of the car on dirt roads soon...

This year, still being heavily into my fur fetish, i hope to get a little one to skin out & tan..

.Why...?

...just because i want to...& because a baby fox fur will be a talking point next to my monster lion cat pelt...

Ill be dancing to the pointer sisters soon...!!!

It has been pretty dry over here in WA. But it has been raining foxes. I have managed to get out two night in a row. Which doesn’t happen very often. We managed to pick up 5 foxes on night one and another 2 the next night. The highlight was when the cocky and I spotted these two off in the distance. A quick hit with the button whistle and two foxes curiosity overcame their sense of self preservation. They both sat there wondering what was it with that bright light and noise? I aimed for fox on the right. The cocky the left. Down my fox went. The fox on the right dropped out of sight before a shot could be taken. His inquisitive nature overrode his common sense, and back up he popped. He had no time to regret his decision because he got whacked by the cocky’s .243 and my 204. No more lamb killing for these 2.

Nice. Very impressive. What did you shoot them with? I use my 204 which is absolutely devastating.

Well, they certainly do the trick. You certainly stopped those foxes laughing in church.It’s funny how things work out. One one of the properties I shoot on,we haven’t seen any foxes for months. Then the last few times the place has had a lot of them wandering around.
