Thread: fox - any thoughts

    fox - any thoughts

    Any thoughts as to what caused this wound? Fighting? Bullet?

    Looks similar to a pic in one of Robert Bucknalls books but I couldn't see a crease or ridge to suggest a rifle round.

    Anyway whatever did it didn't kill him, but 100 grain from a 243 eventually did!

    Thanks for the comments gents. He was a touch bitten up round the muzzle, but again that could come from fighting. They're not for leaving much to ground round that way but you never know

    Perhaps that's the one, one of our members bounced an HMR bullet off

    A pet dog I had some years ago had the same kind of wound she caught her head on a rusty nail and it got infected
