    foxes

    how meney foxes do you shoot each year i average about 250 a year for the last 3 years 162 vixens the rest dog foxes had up to 7 in a night using night vision dedicated gen3 rifle scope is this a good number per season as i would like to think im not bad at it

    Thats a lot of foxes but it depends where you live. Some areas have very few foxes where others hold a huge population. We personally shoot between 50 - 70 a year but dont have big numbers around us....

    hi bud this is over two farms and a large hill more land dont know the acarage to be honest but most of the shots are on the farms as for the hill foxes mabey 14 a year if i find the den to big a area to stalk them the odd dead sheep left out works for a while then they sit like 600yards out craftey buggers have a housing estate near one of the farms with a golf course right next to my permision so foxes come from both and i have a wild life sanctuary next to that ground would be in miles easey all my permisions over lap each other walk from one to the other just step over in to the next bit of land all my ground was obtained from one farmer telling another about the number of foxes shot so have bean very lucky and verry happy with my lot

    That is alot of foxes!!!! i'm new to fox shooting and have shot 10 this year and i'm pretty pleased with myself, my permission is a pheasant shoot and the keeper gets out lamping as much as he can.
    Just waiting for the Rape to be cut so i can get out with NV, would love to get to 20 by end of the year.
    If i shot 250 a year i would be keepers best friend for ever...............

    That is one hugh amount of foxes. What attracts them to your farms. 250 in year one must have put a large dent in the number of breeding pairs.

    If I shot that many vixens.. There would be no foxes for the next breeding season
    i shoot about 100 of 2 farms and we cage trap about a further 50
    all off about 400 acres
