First proper trip out with the Hornet and it's proved it's worth
Started with a drive round the flattest dry'ish field (in a smart car ), not so dry after all, but didn't get stuck
Moved on to plan 2, had a walk around a couple of the lakes and managed 2 rabbits and 3 moor-hens, all free hand shots at 35 yards or less.
As it was getting dark I started a slow walk back to the car, but decided a sit under tree while I had a smoke was in order, nothing to see, and nobody to hear, so I tried to make a squeak with lips and back of hand (glad nobody was watching) it really didn't sound very good.
But Mr Fox must have liked it, he popped out of a hedge about 170 yards away, I tried another little squeak and he came in to 130 yards.
Then he just sat and watched me (probably laughing) he would not come any closer, and he was partially hidden behind a tussock of grass.
All that showed was his head, more or less front on, just a small angle, range finder said 131 yards, I had the rifle on the sticks and could just make out his head through the little 4x32 scope, held on his left eye and pulled the (set) trigger, and that was the end of him.
Bullet entered just beside his eye, some fragments of something exited the scruff of his neck/top of shouders, dropped on the spot
This is the non gory pic, the other is not nice, Factory remington 35 grain Accu tip's are fairly destructive even on a good size target at that range.
