To be fair Dave it wasn't a miss just the fox dodged the bullet 👍

I'll remember that one!

Left the foxes alone last night 😋 and went after bunnies instead.  Strange night last night as it was darkish and a little breeze but the rabbits had decided on a night in , didn't see as many as expected and finished on only 10 ....

Poachers , poachers , poachers .....last 3 nights out on 3 different farms and I have witnessed poachers lamping. Last night I had been set up calling on the stubbles when a vehicle with no lights on came tearing  up the farm road with lamps scanning. I flashed my red torch at them and they just shone a big white lamp in my face and carried on up the road turned round and lamped me on the way out 😡😡😡😡😡 Luckily they got nothing but later on there was a few roe out on the stubbles they had lamped so safe for another night but I know they will be back .

So, yesterday evening I got a call from my mate saying they were on with cutting the last of the wheat along the plantation on my secret perm, I arrived just as the combine and the last trailer of corn was coming off the field, pulling into the yard the old man was there, shortly joined by the two brothers and the grandson. After a bit of banter and the old man asking me to keep an eye out for the dog lads and do what I need to if they are on there ( whatever that means) I headed to the edge of some game cover, setting the caller out about 50 yards from the plantation it was a good 40 minutes before a set of eyes appeared, interested in the caller I allowed it to head towards it, as it got to within 80ish yards I turned the caller off. It stopped side on and with the crosshairs just behind it front leg I squeezed the trigger, BANG but no thud and one fox making a run for it, I have absolutely no idea how I missed it, on the up side a miss is better than an injured running fox. After giving it another 2 hours, checking out the rest of the land and not seeing another ginger I decided to call it a night, as got to the yard I noticed a car parked in the lane leading up to the farm, looking through the NV I could see 4 people, my first thought was dog lads and been in no mood for idiots after my poor night out I headed straight up to the gate where I was greeted by 4 coppers who had been called by the farm across the road because he didn’t recognise my car, after a bit of a chat with them I headed off home, I almost wished I’d stayed in ☹️

One of them nights I guess . I’ve got a couple of places now where I’ve had plod problems. I have the phone numbers now of the local houses and drop a text telling them I’m out and I haven’t had any more bother . I also ring in one place to the police just in case .

Just checked out some stubbles and nothing about due I think to the blistering heat. Anyway I thought I would go for a wander looking for vermin. As predicted nothing much about and I was totally goosed when I got back to the car. I did manage my 2nd squirrel of the year 🤣 and a magpie so not a total waste of time.
