Thread: Plastic fox for crow shooting

  1. #1

    Plastic fox for crow shooting. Any good.

    Just been up to a local garden centre to get some plastic coated canes to prop up my crow hide, and on display they have the most realistic resin fox I have ever seen. Proper size and good colouring. Only down side is the price 85. I can pick up a stuffed one for a bit more money, but unsure as to how well it would like bouncing around in the back of my van, and getting rained on a lot of the time.Tried owl, that works well, but nothing like when I peg out a fox, shot from the night before. The old fox sends them into a frenzy.
    Bushware do a plastic one, but it doesn't,t look as good as this resin one, though it may be a crap picture. Thoughts and experience greatly appreciated.

    i only use dead ones with a crow on a pigeon magnet or an owl with a dead crow tied to its feet on top of a fence post

    Having great results from a dead Charlie, shot the night before, but not much joy from the owl. They will fly over and have a look, but the fox sends them bonkers.

    real fox always worked much better IMO

    A stuffed ferret also works very well!

    I haven't seen one, let alone tried one, but one of these from Bushwear might be a better (and certainly cheaper) punt if you can't get your hands on a fresh one:

    Sir Charles Frederick Fox works everytime Crows will come in with you standing exposed in the field as long as you keep still. Then give them 32grams of lead
