I shot a fox at about 200 yards off a set of home made sticks at the second attempt last night. After the first shot it ran 25 yards further up the hedgeline as if it was not too sure which way to go and then stopped.
This was the second one I shot, they had been around the farm scrounging the cut grass piled up for sileage and they had seen me and not scarpered that quickly which made me wonder if they were urban released ones, another one was squashed on the road about two miles away.
What to folk reckon is the maximum distance to shoot off sticks.
I carry my sticks with me most times and use them, for deer the max distance I have shot them at is probably 125 yards, certainly shot a fox using sticks at that distance.
Is there any rule if thumb or is it what you are confident with.
