Thread: Foxing with the Z6

    Foxing with the Z6

    Having a brought a new Z6 2.5-15x56 a4 and fully intending to put in on a different rifle next year, It never made going back up in the cupboard after bringing it down as a friend wanted to look at it....
    So off came my 3-12x56 a4 Kahles to swap on the Z6....
    Cold barrel shots yesterday morning were very close to the day before,
    I had left enough room for the lamp fitting but the cover is a different profile on the turret so I had to use my T60 last night...
    A small amount of dressing the clip this morning has it working a treat.

    First fox around 170 yards with the second a lot closer as it decided to lay in a deep tram line and sit tight...

    All my foxing is on foot so things change with every step, the side parallax caught me out on the second shot as I had to work closer in with the crouching fox.
    Iphone would not flash on the second one so went back this morning to get the shot as the farmer likes a picture...

    2 vixen's was also a bonus.....

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    Well done, good to know you are getting along fine with the new scope. You had it cranked up to x15 or it just sits at x8

    TBH the Kahles sat on 10 all the time, some times it would make it to 12 when I got pi##ed off trying to get closer only to have the fox keep moving back...lol

    Both of them were not hungry enough to come to the call, as I could see rabbits in the back ground hopping around.

    Although you don't cover as much ground on foot and I personally think moor foxes are taken this way.

    Thank you....those two were around 500 yards apart where they fell, I shot a cub off there three weeks ago.

    At a guess I would say there is one more cub to get...

    Well done! I've got Z6s on both my .204 and .308 - they're especially good for me as they don't have the stupid battery lump that's on the Z6i, which gets in the way of add-on NV units.
