Thread: Temp goes down....Foxes come out...

    Temp goes down....Foxes come out...

    With this short cold spell it seemed a good night as I was sure they would be on the move, however the half moon, no wind the crunchy ground under foot stacked the odds against me.

    For me lamping on my own I keep to the same format as nothing worse in not being ready, too many times in the past I've been caught out...

    First fox took a lot of coaxing out only to keep moving along the head land stopping for only a quick look, so I had to be quicker...not far around 160 but first in the bag..


    Second was quite a surprise as I had moved around a mile and picked up an eye shine from a long way off, with the bright moon I stood under the shadow of an oak while calling. Always worth a look around! A second fox had come in to my right, a quick spin on the sticks and number 2!


    Third was the result of a lot of work, I had driven 3 more miles to a large block then set up and called to get a quick set of eyes looking back but this one was not having any of it, so I move a few hundred yards to a second small block, I watched this fox keep stopping and looking then disappear!
    More calling more eyes! No safe shot! What is behind me! A little vixen with a dog fox calling from the wood, lit her up and number 3 and home..


    They are all bagged and tagged for the DEFRA pick up on Wednesday.

    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.....

    Nice one Tim.
    Myself I've been waiting for the snow which finally came after Xmas.
    My first trip resulted in bagging the dominant male fox which weighed a healthy 8kg.


    The next trip equalled my previous bests with 4 foxes in one night from the same baitsite.


    The last trip was COLD and no foxes showed.

    Good going... -24!! ###k that ! lol

    But I guess you must be used to it...? I was chatting to my Dad about the long spell of S/West wind we have had, if they would have been East winds and dragged your weather over for so long we would have come to a stand still...

    These look like prime furs, are you able to skin and sell the hides in the UK?
