Thread: Three on a Dark Night

    Three on a Dark Night

    Having changed rounds 2 weeks ago from a brand I have been using for 5 years there has only been one day with very little breeze to dial in.

    My 200 yard zero was put to the test with the first fox, the ground has been drilled and is as dry as a chip! Nothing on the first flick around but with my home made caller things soon changed, out of a garden a set of eyes gave me a flash.
    Not shot so I headed for a pylon around 200 yards away which would change the angle, I had the wind but the fox moved back to cover of a second pylon. A quick squeak and the white bib showed up in the Z6.....
    I paced it @ 216 but Google maps said 198! Not so easy to stay on track in the dark lol



    Second was on a neighbours farm but it came to the call which will be a good leg pull for their keeper!!




    Last one was a vixen I bumped with the light when walking through the gate way, off with the light rifle on the sticks while a soft lip squeak to hope it might stop....she did in the sprouting rape.....

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    The more times you go, there is always a chance of going home with one

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    Well done! My shooting partner shot two tonight, but couldn't find either of them, so they don't count towards the total - we've already had 14 so far this month though, so we're not doing too badly!

    With some big shoots around my way there is a lot of game around, with partridges sitting out there like a ready made big mac then also the late ploughing will get them moving....

    I called a farmer up earlier this evening, and he told me that while we were welcome to look around, he didn't think there were any foxes about. We shot eight and saw two more!
