yeah you'll bump into it eventually mate 8-)
tell the owner put a radio in with hens overnight if he's worried about the fox. radio 4 is all talking, so seems to deter reynard ;)
what gun do you use for reynard ?

well that set up will sort charles out mate 8-)
i use shotgun these days for foxes, my shoots with fox problems arent safe for anything else really.
yeah the forum is quiet, shame really, as it was awesome a few years ago. some top lads still pop in, but not often enough.
the hunting section a few years ago was solid mate, and if you had a problem with your gun, there were some right gun mending/fixing wizards kicking about in the technical areas, and a lot of pissheads in the virtual bar :lol:

We were back out the other day , grandson is becoming an excellent shot , he suffers badly from ADHD, and has had a hard life ,so its good to see him taking a real interest in this , he got 14 all in for the day some of which I used as fox bait as this in on a large private house with plenty of ground and they keep chickens so want the fox gone , so set up the trail camera and staked the squirrels 20 ft away hat will give me an idea what time it appears at then its a sit and wait
get an old clock, take the back off, and tie some fishing line around the battery. tape the clock to summat solid, and tie t'other end of the fishing line to a squirrel, rabbit, pigeon etc. when the fox takes the bait he pulls the battery out and stops the clock. do this a couple of nights and you'll know what time he's liable to turn up.
shot a fair few foxes doing this, saves waiting up for hours on end ;)
worked for me .

No doubt it would work but as I said its a bit of a distance from me , so would only get one setting or the owner would have to set it up again , and bad enough trying to get him to put titbits out at a point with a safe back stop as the ground is very awkward for back stops , I have an old trail cam somewhere I will dig out attach an external battery pack to it and put a pile of skewered squirrels down and get an idea when its coming , thanks for the input guys
