Well the Mrs is away with work 'int big smoke' for a few days so thought I'd make the most of it. Been out tonight for a few hours in pursuit of Charlie and to try my new Nordik Predator call, from Kristopher Klaussen. Tried a few spots early on but got no response but at about 11:15pm got a set of eyes 200 yds out. He worked his way round to about 100 yds but skylined so no shot. Left him be and carried on calling. 2 mins later picked up two pairs of eyes in a hedge only 100 yds away. One very interested one totally static, so waited for one to clear the hedge and took the shot but the other remained where it was. At this point I thought it must be a deer and to drive on, so I drove 50 yds further down so I could see down the back of said hedge, but what I thought was a deer turned out to be a vixen curled up, just looking at me, so she got it. Anyway the dog was at the back of a flooded area so left it there but I retrieved the vixen and what a pregnant little so and so. Very heavy with at least 5 cubs inside - worth shooting 6 foxes in my book that one!
I also can't recommend the Predator call enough, it took a bit of working out to get the best noise from it but once you get the hang of it, I can gauruntee no electronic caller will come close in volume, or realistic sound! And at £35 I know which is best value for money!
