Quick One

Recommended Posts

Got a call from 1 of the lads in the gun club that a local farmer had seen a fox enter 1 of his sheds and would i come with a terrier to try get it.I knew the place well as we do earths and a shore in this area every year and know the farmer PJ very well.He had a plank up against the door to stop the fox from pushing it out.I opened up the door and had a look with the other chap ready with shotgun,no sign of the fox.The shed held about 50 small hay bales + a load of scaffold planks and steel +a load of old furniture all in a very untidy manner,lol.I stuck a coller on the dog and let him in,he straight of went in behind the bales and within seconds out comes the fox and my mate shot him,quickest fox ive had in many the year,farmer happy as he keeps a lot of chickens-ducks +there is a pheasant pen on the land.

I bet you were glad there was no digging involved Fat Man, as it's so hot and you hadn't the lads with you who usually do all the digging anyways, LOL.

What terrier was it ?

A shore is a man made drain that's lined with flag stones.

If it is the one I think Fat Man is talking about it's a dry shore beside a farmers yard that is like a magnet for foxes.

I often remember regularly bolting 3 or 4 foxes out of it. In fact we often popped into it on the way home just to have a quick bolt to give a lurcher something to do.

But, my father had a very promising lurcher who was killed coursing a bolted fox out of it, Fatman's great little lakeland Tiny had her last hunt there as did one of my terriers.

It's not that they were lost in it but that it was the last place they were in. So maybe it's cursed, LOL.

Yeah same shore,it has held some amount of foxs down through the years and i bolted an otter from it a couple of year back.I remember the day your fathers lurcher hit the stump,i think Spud was involved in that accident.Tiny took a lot of stick that last day out o a bad fox,i remember your punch dog was in it a long time and we could not even find him,but it was only a couple of year ago that we found out that the shore heads out towards the main house,right up next to the gable infact and then heads towards the field at the front of the house,as wipeout said we were lucky to locate LUGS in it.
