Fox # 59 for the year!

G'day,

Just thought id share a few photos of some of the 59 foxes i have shot so far this year. Best effort was 37 over 3 consecutive nights. Rifle used is a Steyr Pro Varmint 223 with a Swarovski Z5 5-25x52. Ammo used is Sierra 69gr Matchkings & 23 gr of ADI Benchmark 2 powder. Ranges between 200 - 400 meters all under the spotlight using a scotch predetor caller.

    Very nice. Too bad fox pelts aren't $100 a pop...

    Thanx guys. They are starting to go off the call @ the moment as mating season is right around the corner. Have just got given a CD that has a Vixen in heat call on it that is meant to bring em in when the predator calls wont work. As for 100 bucks a pelt that would be nice but sadly those days are gone and id need to buy a 17 Rem for that kinda work like the old fox shooters from the 70's in Australia used. The government had a bounty on a couple of years ago for $10 a tail and there is talk of bringing it back due to the high populations around @ the moment.

    even 10 dollars a tail would over all expenses for a hunt like that and leave enough over for a nice dinner afterwards

    BTW nice LH rifle, southpaws all the way!
