    Fox population

    We seem to have a lot this year compared to recent years; we've shot 13 recently just on my mate's farm, incl 7 from one 2-acre paddock....and trailcams show there are still a few more roaming about the place. We've also clattered more on other areas where we control the vermin - and all this is before the crops get combined. ....

    Im not seeing many at all ..... lamped and called for around 5 hours the other night on barley stubbles and only saw 1 which we never got.

    We just dont have the population that a lot of you Southerners have ....shame as I would like more to shoot....

    A lot. seems to be more every year I think there displaced urban foxes from surrounding towns and villages. There ability to survive and thrive never ceases to amaze me

    I've not seen many this year, I've shot seven so far, but my numbers last year were 62 at the same point in the year, I've seen good numbers where I don't shoot, so maybe I hit them too hard last year :/ oops
