Thread: First cubs of the year

  1. #1

    First cubs of the year

    As per the title, spotted the first 2 cubs of the year last night and quite suprised at how large they were too! (well over half grown). Unfortunately they were on ground that prevented a safe shot, but now I know they're there.....
    Just wondering what the situation is in your part of the country?

    Not spotted any cubs yet, but it was around this time last year that we started to see them.

    I'm doing a sweep tomorrow night but I have reports of "juvenile" type behaviour both ends of my patch.

    A Bristol menber told me he shot a vixen and 2 cubs last week, 3 weeks ago we shot a heavily pregnant vixen so appears big range in cubbing this year.

    Def a big range this year Cyres, shot a heavily pregnant vixen myself here about 3 weeks ago. Apart from her and 1 other barron vixen, been all dog foxes for about the last 2 months. Then as I said in my OP these cubs I saw were over half grown.
    I'm sure they must have been an exceptionally early litter.
