Well for a change I've managed to chalk one up to me rather than the fox, although I did loose a chicken the other day but I'm not sure to what.
I shot this vixen about 30 yards away from the bottom chicken pen.
It's the time for year when they get brave, so with lambing fast approaching I'm pleased to have removed this potential problem early on.
Like with many of my hunting and shooting posts, I was in two minds as to post this post or not as I know how people get when it comes to animals, but I see things very black or white. This fox is a predator and the animals that I keep on this little homestead are it's prey.
I don't see shooting this animals as something to be enjoyed, I see shooting it as a necessity.
