Thread: calibre for fox despatch in a cage

    calibre for fox despatch in a cage

    Good evening

    Does anybody know the restrictions of calibre or gun type used for shooting foxs in cages. Was speeking to someone the other day and they said .22 lr rifle is illegal so he uses a 38 special pistol.

    Can you enlighten me please

    Regards pj

    'Someone' is talking rubbish. No reason why .22RF can't be used. Check out the HO Guidance.

    Thanks orian. I would personally prefer to use my.22 quieter and iwouldnt fancy shooting a big pistol so close having seen how quick the cows used to drop on the farm. Couldnt quite understand where the guy was coming from. Something along the lines of not putting a rifle barrel through the cage but you would have to put a pistol barrel in the cage anyway.

    Would have thought .22lr would be ideal??

    .22lr would be the obvious choice at close range for safety reasons

    .410 shotgun even better, then no condition problems either

    .410 is weapon of choice, second only to the golok!
