    Quick look out tonight

    After surfing the SD for a few hours the avo, i was inspired to go and have a wander round with the rifle on a local permission (same as where i got the buck with a broken leg) with the chance of a fox or at least some rabbits or crows. I went and had a look for the roe does but were obviously sitting tight in the crop. As i was about to leave, i thought i would let the dog have a run down the 10m headlands. as i went round a corner (dog luckily to heel) I saw fox run into the rape. I thought i would give it a minute and then try calling it, while trying to get the pup on the lead.. After about 30 seconds of squeaking a cub popped out onto the grass, 150 yds away and then being inquisitive, bounded into about 120yds and stopped. It dropped to the 40gn .223 instantly.

    The first fox i saw wasnt a cub, more likely to be the vixen so i shall be spending more hours this week trying to round up the litter and the parents.. a challenge at this time of the year with the crop being so big..

    Good stuff.

    There are plenty around at the moment. You enjoy yourself sorting the rest of them out.

    Good stuff. Dave think i have found yet more cubs but could have been the same. We will need to get on them but i think there are plenty about to get.

    Funny how the dogs always look like they are embarrassed that it's not a deer!
