First proper post here, I am looking for some advice on regards to lamping foxes have a few stupid questions so here goes,
Bit of background had a nasty encounter with a youngish fox taking 3 of my 6 chickens during broad day light he even had the cheek to come back again during the day...

Atn mars lt thermal scope, 4-8x.
Great scope but I bought it to see if thermal was for me or not, now time to upgrade. Bought Jan/Feb of this year, comes with picatinny QD mounts.
I've killed out to 250m with it but really it's best suited for out to 150m.
Looking for £700 posted, but open...

I have an Infiray TD50L NV scope, the IR torch with it is obviously rubbish.
What torches to people recommend? I gather there is a difference with scope needed either LED or laser, I'm not sure of the difference.
It is for foxing so needs to stretch out to 300m.

Perfect foxing rifle but also used to shoot Muntjac and CWD.
This rifle is a sweet rifle to shoot well maintained and looked after.

Just a bit of a general one here but what do you do to dispose of carcasses after a nights foxing?
I know some people just chuck them in a bush, some leave them for the farmer to dispose of and I know of others that have dug a pit in a secluded corner of the farm. What do you do?
Hi, I'm a lapsed member and just re-registered via a new PW. I'm retired so can shoot a lot - foxing, deer stalking, vermin control, driven boar (occasionally), driven game, clays (various disciplines) and re-load my 22-250 and the next stage will be re-loading my 30-06.
I live in SE Essex but...
Be gentle as I'm an newbie to FAC, so forgive any ignorance. I'm just trying to learn like you all did once.
I have a permission which has stables and poultry where I was ratting with my air rifle but they started getting fox problems, which I was invited to address. The land is on the edge of...

I've always shot RH rifles but as a lefty I want my next one to be a LH. It'll be a foxing rifle in .223. Varmint. Remington 700 is an option. I've heard mixed reviews on them. I'm used to shooting a Howa 1500 varmint so I'm used to a budget rifle and had no complaints with it. I'm on a bit of a...
Looking to purchase a .223 varmint for my foxing. I do a lot with my .243 Howa Varmint 1500 but want a backup rifle and move my .243 over to deer rifle. I shoot archer attached to Vortex. Thinking another Howa but maybe stainless. Remington 783. CZ or maybe push budget to Tikka T3. All varmint...
