    coudn't believe it!!!

    I read a lot of posts on here about peoples sucsess! so here's one regarding a momment i'm not very proud of!!!
    went out for a wander the other night with my new shooter.... a 243 i had off here actually! next door had lost a few chickens to this fox who's been even bold enough for daytime visits! so the other night I had no work on so went out looking for him.... i spotted him after half an hour! wind in my face.. nice! however he was in line with someone's house an he wasn't moving! so i left him be for another nite...
    anyway headed home over another farm & had a squeak on the way, 3 fields away a pair of eyes... he came in like a fully trained lab! & I was waiting with one up the spout ready...he crossed the last hedge about 80yds away... i mounted the rifle.. watched him trot towards me through the scope... BANG!! he then ran off!!!! HOW DID I MISS THAT??????????
    Anyway incase your wondering I dropped the chicken thief last night! 120yds off the knee

    We all have those off situations!............ some worse than others!, I recall a night shoot on fox where we could not recover the carcase, shot over grass mown that evening, I phoned my buddy a week later, telling him that his"Lost Fox" was in a particular bale!........ It's quite possible you have nailed a number two!

    Yep - I've 'missed' several over the years, only for their carcasses to appear close by in daylight...
