    another shot fox with a difference

    Attachment 14196we are lambing at the moment in a paddock by my house,the lambs are indoors for 24hrs then put into a small paddock in groups of 10. this morning i fed the sheep in the paddock at first light and went to check the main flook on returning at 7am i was greated by this fox with what had been a very healthy lamb in his mouth. I ran to the house grabbed my rifle and at this is the resulting photos. this is not a staged photo but has it happened.
    The rifle used was a 77/22 aw ruger,swaro 6x42, Eley subsonic at 15yds head shot

    Ah - but you shouldn't be shooting them at this time of year as they have young, you know...



    ...Bugger that - kill them whenever you see them. I've had 45 so far this year.

    Top job on the fox fella.Lambing is a time to stay on top of them or old farmer can get someone else to do the job if we are not and ground can be lost.

    I shot two, a dog and a vixen, hanging around a neighbours lambing field last weekend. Headshots on both with the 22/250. Photos are not fit to publish....

    I will shoot every fox and every hoody crow I possibly can.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Bloody hell.
    You should send a copy of that to all the shooting mags and associations.
    That might just get them to realise the damage they actually do.

    All we need know is a photo of a badger doing the same.

    They don't deserve any mercy regarding seasons.

    Well done Taff a great result, I also have a Ruger 77/22 stainless a very good rifle. How on earth can people still claim foxes don't take lambs ?
