With the crop of Lucerne having its first cut I thought it would be worth a look for a fox, there is a 14 acre wood with lots of brambles also some nice clear areas as well. Been in there loads of times had the trail cams with no results.


Came out of the wood as the thick canopy killed the light, from a young age my Dad taught me stop short of the edge then take a look, coming up the hedge from a bordering farm was a Buck and Doe.


On the sticks for the Buck, in the hedge they go!! I guess the fresh cut Lucerne was too much of a draw, the Buck took a body length out of the hedge holding his neck still after lifting it to look around.........

Being close to home I took it back after leaving the pluck out hoping the stiff breeze would draw a fox out, only hares the rest of my walk after returning

Thank you, I saw 2 does this evening with the last one coming presenting a nice shot, however I did hit them both a bit hard last harvest so just the Bucks are on Zee list for the near future.

I dropped off a bag with the fillets, front and rear leg to the land owner, also text a second farmer who wanted a rear leg that I have one for him.

They are good fun to shoot and it opens up the doors for pigeon shooting which on the right day is about the best sport you can get...
