Thread: Fox from high seat

    Fox from high seat

    I was out early after a fallow yesterday. It was a lovely fresh morning and I took my sons young Gwp out with me for company. Nothing was happening on the deer front and I was starting to doze off when a fox appeared about 80m from the seat. It was a welcome break from the boredom.

    Sitting in a high seat just outside Perth about ten years ago waiting for a Roe buck when a fox appeared from behind a bush about 10yds away so I shot it between the eyes with 180grn out of a 30-06 it just lay there steaming.
    I had been on the hills the previous day shooting stags
    AT THE AGE OF 50 I DECIDED I WAS GOING TO GROW OLD F***ING DISGRACEFULLY

    I use several high seats on the estate for foxing in the summer.It gives the advantage of getting a better view over the summer vegetation.
    A friend of mine is a keen sea fisherman and is quite happy to give me bags of fish guts which work a treat. A couple of days baiting a spot usually pays off.

    I know a chap who whilst having his lunch after a gralloch spotted a hoodie crow about 150yds away
    130gr .270 left it steaming too!

    i only shoot a few deer each season but for some reason i still get a real buzz when i comes to shooting foxes, wither lamping or calling during the day, the heart always races a little when an identification has been made and the shot is on.

    I know that feeling too - and, like you, I rarely get it for deer. Don't know why...

    It's the thought of dragging the deer after the shot

    Yes, that doesn't help - especially when the ground's too wet to get close with the truck...
