Thread: Fresh cut hay field

  1. #1

    Fresh cut hay field

    Just got back, had three nice foxes off a fresh cut field two just on the edge of dark with my mate pulling off a cracking shot 350 yrds. Spotted two others with the night vision then the frigging batteries died, doh! Back to the car for the lamp and nailed the third. Good nights work. Don't they just love fresh cut fields, great fox magnets.

    Yes, however problem at momment is that in our area virtually every field of grass has been cut and they are combining so foxes scattered everywhere. Normally find that the first silage cut in May is a dead cert.

    Last night looked at masses of cut grass not a thing, but got one walking up the farm drive!!

    But thats foxing.

    3 foxes...I would be happy with that. I am looking forward to when my local permission cuts his crops.
    By three methods we may learn wisdom:
    First, by reflection, which is noblest;
    Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
    and third by experience, which is the bitterest

    I went round 7 farms and all have hay cut and never seen a thing... I just can't figure that one out, i think it may have been too still and warm and they are probably cleaning up during daylight.

    Some fields get massive pressure from cleanup squads of Poo Peckers, leaving very little for Reynard.
