  2. Getting the smell of fox of your hands

    they have no place in the hunting community if they are doing that simple.

    i have blew out the heart of a fox before he ran for 20 yards but ran dead sometimes they run as their muscle memory takes over, most cases have being runners but they are dead and just fall over i always aim for the center mass of a fox heart and lung shot never go for a head shot as i fear i will blow off a jaw and worse it will starve to death at least when i aim for center mass its more forgiving.

    i do pull shots i'm human every body misses but only to see a fox run away healthy and not wounded and to become educated, 220 is a flat round and would knock a fox on his arse so i don't know pal even the hydro-static shock of the 220 swift would kill a fox out right., call a spade a spade here like there is some sort of stigma but f**k it trying to explain something here is like flogging a dead horse.

    ok i have shot foxes with a shotgun using lead bb's in a heavy load, 223 ballistic tip bullets and 243 soft points designed for expansion and quick kills and i never had a leg blown off i aim for the engine room or front on, so i dont know what you have shot foxes with before but its sounds like you are telling porkies mate.

    every method if done right is effective no matter what discipline you are involved in.

    i can assure any fox i shoot with the 243 is on the spot dead and dead before it hits ground its a very powerful round and the stopping power is humane for dispatching foxes.

    just decided to give it up and try something new, when i married i moved in to the new parish got settled and bought 2 terrier's one a full bred jack Russell and a border terrier had full intentions to dig them but i just took up shooting i still use them for shooting and they love it, i still go on the odd dig with mates it brings me back to my young days.

    to be fare i used to dig foxes when i was young but i still stick to the principles of vermin control come cubbing season i left them be but if a problem fox was causing grief it went along with the cubs, now i pick the rifle because its quick and humane i have poults to protect and farmers to help out, not here argue but every man to his own i think and if a man wants to shoot them let him be we're all on the same boat here.
