I've shot fewer foxes than usual this winter, not that I shoot big numbers of them. The curious thing is there's not even been any sign of foxes around me recently (i.e. the last month or so has been foxless) Lambing has started and the fields are full of lambing ewes and new lambs. So, I'm not complaining but it is unusual to have no sign of fox at the very time I usually encounter most problems and consequently shoot most of them.
Are any of you experiencing a similar, unexpected, fox holiday?
Btw... Badger numbers are as high as I've ever known here... Might there be a link?
