    We shot one full grown fox last night and on the rifle report a vixen started shriking four or five hundred yards away, as if calling her cubs ! A bit odd if cubs have grown, and moved out, so we could have a late litter about !

    Its down to 2 things, either they have been given birth very late, or 2 litters. I have shot over 30 cubs on our estate in 4 months, and some of them have been very healthy and almost fully grown, others I have struggled to get on them, thought they where a small cat or a hare at 200 yards when they caught my eye, as soon as the Schmidt scope was on them, the .22-250 did the job!

    Which part of the country was this in?

    With regard to the two litters thing - as far as I know, vixens only come into season once a year. If that's correct, any extra litters would therefore have to be those of other members of the social group. I would, however, be most interested to hear if anyone has information to the contrary!
