Thread: Probably my strangest fox.

  1. #1

    Probably my strangest fox.

    I shot a cub this morning.
    off the ramp in the quarry, it was swimming, in view of us all. We had finished foxing and gone in there for some long range practice at 0730.
    all walking in and talking i saw 2 large cubs playing tig. I ran up the big ramp (50ft) for a better veiw. 1 made the wood the other a reed bed. 2 of the boys walked him out, to our supprise he jumped into the lake and swam for it.
    40m's free hand from above.
    162gr from the rem mag.
    i hit it just behind the withers it soon sank.
    the water splashed 10ft high, and then looked like the telly after a great white had taken a seal pup.

    I was out with digger 9523 last evening, we sat up in an old orchard, we Shot a fully grown dog fox and a vixen cub just as it was getting dark, the fully grown vixen and another cub were there, the cub was hit with a 58g bt and it opened up the stomach, they were grazing on fallen cherries, it's not a food source that springs to mind when thinkig of foxes? anyone seen them eating anything else unusual?

    I suppose if john had waited till it was in a release pen it would have been better and more sporting would it? If you had had the problems that I have over the last 2 weeks and done the hours tring to kill a bloody fox killing your birds, you may look at it a bit differantly. Good one john keep up the good work.

    Absolutly Mark, I do seek sport from my work where I can but a job must be done at the end of the day.
    As far as I was concerned, today after well over 2,000 foxes to my own gun that was for me probably one of the most sporting.
    I thought it was great.
    In the day I have gassed foxes and never thought about sport.
    The old saying "only good fox is a dead fox" is true in most gamefarmers/keepers minds.
    Sport shouldn't enter into our heads really.

    Free hand at a moving target.
    I would say that was quite sporting
