Thread: Another good night.

  1. #1

    Another good night.

    Had a run around the estate last night looking for the culprit that has been taking poults from around one of the pheasant pens, by the end of the night we managed to get one mature dog fox and one vixen cub. Well worth a run out.

    Well done! We've had a few recently, but we're having to work really hard for them. I suspect that we'll run out of foxes before long - and that's on over 30,000 acres...

    We are not seeing that many either, last year we may have shot about 20, but the year before maybe 50-60. Not sure if the bad weather earlier this year has thinned them out????

    Yep - same here. Mind you, we've had nearly 200 foxes already this year, and you can only kill them once...

    same here few and far between, no cubs shot at all yet and only had 2 since harvest on our main pheasant shoot, though we are up to 11 on the year on ground that usually does under 20 but most of those usually are after harvest not before. There is a block of 600 acres of rape next door still to cut though which may be half the reason
