Went out last night with the lamp, only to walk a couple of fields to find the new batteries in the caller were actully flat . We decided to carry on anyway with no vixen or dog call. It soon became apparent that every bl**dy fox in the area was in full cry. What made it worse was having walked and squeaked across 400 odd acres we hadn't picked up a single set of eyes.
Do you think foxes are that focused on the art of love they are less likely to look at a lamp. Or is it just proof of the population that nowadays is becoming ever harder pick up with the lamp?
Is night vision/thermal now imperative to successfull fox control???
