Thread: No Roe but a few foxes....

  1. #1

    No Roe but a few foxes....

    Was up nice and early saterday morning to crack on with the roe cull. Up in the tower by 0615hrs and a rather cold -9oc. Saw nothing for the first couple of hours and the toes were getting a little cold by then. Just after 0830 i glassed a nice roe buck working up a hedge but apart from that no other roe were seen. Just about to leave about 1000hrs when a couple of crows landed in one of the fields, 6.5x55 was put down and the 22-250 came out and hit the spot at just under 200yds. Photo with the camera on timer, barrel is not normaly on the rest before anyone says something

    Just getting my stuff together when out the corner of my eye i catch some movement, charlie was trotting up the field towards the crow i just shot. Rifle back up, quick squeek to stop her, as she looked stright at me the round hit home. Turned round to put the rifle down and there was another, about 210yrds to my right, rifle back up and down went the 2nd. All 3 kills within 5 mins and both foxes within 20secs.

    Wish I had a seat like that, normally end up sitting up a tree.

    Very nice shooting.

    Wow a good morning out. Great account. Some cool high seat.
    It's accuracy that kills.

    I sat out Monday morning for almost as long watching a Pheasant feeder for Munties. I had to pack up to do some work at just gone nine, but decided to check my zero on a patch of mud before I left. Sadly the Squirrel I had been admiring for the last two hours got his head in the way of the shot.

    The gun was still on zero and the squirrel didn't need a follow up, surprising .

    Thanks, the tower is built on top of 4 telegraph poles that are bedded 4ft in solid chalk. It does have a couple of swival chairs so you can easily shoot all the way round and some carpet to soften the noise of the wood. Lovely spot on a T junction of a small valley.
