One less fox in the wood
This is one of the cubs raised in the wood next to the release pen. With the birds arriving in about a week, their time is up.
This one wandered out as the light faded tonight, and made an easy shot for the .17HMR. I was using the slightly heavier CCI Gamepoint 20grain ammo, designed to mushroom rather than fragment.
I don't think it would have made any difference on this shot, but I'm finding it a good, solid hitting round.
So, one down, not sure how many to go, but I've seen the vixen, a very dark coloured animal. She'll be harder to get.
