Whilst out on saturday morning on a wild english partridge shoot up on the yorkshire wolds we saw this fellow catching a few rays.
There was no chance of closing the distance so the client was urged to have a go off the sticks (stood only chance to see over the thick hedge). We waited for well over 4 minutes for the fox to turn broadside, he didn't and the client was tiring holding his aim so the choice was made to shoot after a quick rest from the aim when the fox turned slightly to allow for the biggest target available.
It was a .308 and 150 gr sp's.
It was a very good effort and any closer would have been a very dead fox.
I was stood off to the left about 1 yard so if you take the camera angle off the still i reckon the shot was just between the ears.
And into a "MASSIVE BACKSTOP"
