    I went out last night to see if I could deal with the fox that had killed a goose and countless bantams the night before. On the way over, I stopped and checked the lambs in a couple of fields on another farm. In the second one I spotted a fox ducking and diving about close to the flock. He was a long way out, but there was no way that I was going to leave him to attack the young lambs, so decided to take a shot. I did my best, but with all the snowflakes in the air, I missed. Unluckily for the fox, it misjudged where the shot came from and ran straight towards me. A loud 'pop' told me that my Blitzking had found its mark. The farmer was very pleased when I 'phoned in this morning.

    I wasn't so fortunate on the second farm - there is only one approach route to the paddock that holds all the poultry houses, and the wind was not in my favour. A couple of minutes after I started checking the area over with the thermal imager, I heard the sound of small footsteps behind me in the snow. I spun round and saw that there was a fox about ten feet away and in the midst of doing a cartoon-stylee rapid exit. It must have got to within a yard of me. By the time I'd got the rifle up and the covers off the NV scope, it was nowhere to be seen. There was a herd of red deer on the other side of the nearby hedge, and as I hate disturbing them unnecessarily, I decided it'd be better to try again another night. It maybe time to stick my high seat up overlooking the goose pen...
