Thread: Pressure shot

  1. #1

    Pressure shot

    A keeper friend has been loosing poults on a stubble.
    So we went out last night after sue finished work.
    10pm I arrived and we were striaght into the stubble field near his house where the fox was working.
    Immediatly we got the eyes at the far end of the field.
    I slipped out and over the bonnet.
    The lamp came back on and he was gone.
    Jeeesus he was about 400m's away.
    We callled to no avail.
    So we left and drove around the estate, only seeing another fox down wind which again never stuck around. It was now 12.10 and we were heading back home.
    A quick look in the original field and there he was about 140m's away.
    No time to get out it set of to run away.
    Quartering away from us Graham couldn't see it in the red light, so i tracked it in the scope shouting right right right up right.
    He squeaked and it stopped for a look back. Now broadside at about 210m's I shot freehand and down it went. *dance*
    Been sat in the cab and freehand at a lampshy fox at that range I would say this is one of my best shots this summer.
    Well chuffed
    And stalking secured for a wee while longer.

    I'm on fire at the moment, bucks are quiet so have had time to go out with the lamp.
    Killing about 25 in 3 weeks.
    Cheating with the rangefinder binos and a BDC turret.
    set the scope x16 mag on the zeiss and a blitz lamp had some to far to print on here.
    The only thing spoiling play has been the wind and rain and we are running out of foxes now.
