Long Range Fox Kill 300 SMK *Pics*

In the summer time I like to get up and go to the range before work while its still cool out. Well yesterday I was out there and as I was leaving I looked up on the hill and there were a pair of little pups watching me. So I decided to go out last night and see if I could whack one at LR with my 338 Lapua I had them on their den at 920 but due to some wind and me forgetting my wind meter i wasn't able to connect. I guessed on the wind but not good enough. So I decided to go out this morning and see if they were still around. glassed and glassed, nothing so I decided to blow on my distress call and almost instantly there was a head on the sky line so I ranged it hoping I had ranged the fox and not the hill in front of him I dialed in my scope on my 338 Lapua to 624 yards and sent a 300 SMK flying which made him disappear I wasn't sure if I had hit him until I saw him flopping around like a head shot rabbit.. Here are the results
