    My buddy Pat, his son Cody and i went hunting towards Silver City, NM. We had some great land to hunt on and the land owner was one of the nicest guys I have ever met.

    We had a few opprotunities, stalked a coyote on a ridge and into a canyon and I even took a very very long shot at a coyote. All to no avail.
    The next day, I had to pass on going with these gentlemen due to setting up for the PM banquet and low and behold, my bad Karma was set free when I got a text with this picture. Cody nailed this beautiful Gray fox at 225yds with a 60gr Vmax out of his SD 223 that I built for him. I know this isn't a long range shot for some of you, but with his 18" 223 and a pretty extreme angle, I'm very proud of Cody for making a clean shot.

    This is one of the most beautiful foxes I have ever seen, they decided to tan it and keep it for Codys room.

    Cody is a fine young man, graduating from HS this summer and will be going off to college. He is also a fine hunter and a wealth of knowledge in the AG field(like his dad).

    Thanks guys for letting me tag along on the hunt, as always I truly appreciate your friendship.

    Haha..I looked at the pic first and thought...man that has to be in southern New Mexico with that kind of terrain and rock! Read the post and I was right. About 50 miles from me haha. Very nice fox indeed.

    I was a little jealous, but so happy for Cody. I got a nice male gray this year, but not the colors shown here. I love hunting in NM, it has so much different terrain.
