Whats the best time of the evening/night for fox??

Recommended Posts

foxes can be out at anytime of day nothing to do weather they are hungry or not if they feel safe they wil be out. its all about knowing your land .you may see them breaking from cover in the woods or on there way back to the woods in the morn times.its about puting time in on your land and look for signs they wil usualy use certain runs.

Thanks for all the answers folks. Much appreciated! :)

My monies on what "Richie 10" said with all the hordes .223 owners out there perhaps there all cleared up, or very lamp shy? I'd of thought charlie would consider it an honour to be taken down by a .204 Ruger instead of a .223!! :laugh:

I'll try differing times and see how it goes....

sounds like they formed an underground union and are protesting that you have a .204 ruger!!

:laugh: Maybe!

I saw one today at 3.40pm very close to the farm house.

It was running flat out away from me into a small coppice. It looked to be a very big fox. It's coat was very red and it looked abit rough! I only had my .17hmr anyhow, so unless it was a sure head shot at 40 yards max i wouldn't have tried to shoot it anyhow.

a 17hmr would kil it further than 40yrd mate.

I have shot them to 130 in the chest, no problems :thumbs:

 

You must be confident of you own skill with the rifle, and ensure conditions are right.

 

.22 will drop them at far more 40 :thumbs:

 

Not the weapon of choice I know, but far more foxes get dropped with 6 shot out of a 12 bore probably! Nobody ever seems to whinge about that :laugh:

They're using HMR's in Syria now to take out Govt tanks, true story :yes:

 

:laugh:

 

I know the calibre is well capable of dropping a fox way over 40-5- yards, as a .22lr would. It's more a case of me being too over cautious on the clean kill thing....

Having spoken with the farm owner it's seen at that location on a regular basis. So we'll meet soon enough!

Whats with the .17hmr Syria story??
