I'm not much of a foxer, but I do shoot the odd one to keep the numbers down on my main permission. Normally when I'm out for deer and I see one I'll shoot it, if I feel like it.
I shot a vixen this evening at last light and am wondering whether I should actually not be shooting vixen at this time of year in case they have cubs below ground that are dependant? I do find it hard to tell a dog from a vixen through a high mag scope in poor light. What is the state of fox young at this time of year and what is your policy on vixens? In this particular case she was fairly small and didn't appear to be breast feeding.
Thanks, any information appreciated.
