    No worries mate. .243 is a cracking round, have fun Well placed .243 round tends to put most things on the deck.

    Cheers gents..some bits true some bits not so I use 58 Grain Winchester Varmint x rounds in my .243 for the foxes. Fast and hard hitting and certainly do the job. Well done mate. As Grant says I am letting the side down...no chance of any cheap foxing kit though

    Well done gents ...apart from the bag related comments House and work seem to take all of my time...last fox I shot was in a fox trap so not worthy of reporting back. Think I need to step down as fox club president..Grant and Ed- care to take it on as a dual role?

    Sounds a good deal mate. I barely get thanks from most of the farmers I shoot for

    243

    Good point mate. Dont get anything other then a Tikka T3, Ed says they are rubbish

    243

    ....T3 is a nice rifle but not the only option Ed ...but a very good choice. I have a Howa 1500 and Browning X bolt in .243 and both do the job well.

    Did a bit of work on the "mansion" last night (building regs are round tomorrow to inspect my footings) so wasnt planning to head out. Got a text from the farmer at the chicken farm saying a fox had been spotted so thought I better head out. Arrived and got set up with the caller. After about 10 mins I was frozen so headed off for a walk to warm me up Had a check on the one field where the fox had been seen and was met with seriously bright eye shine that was perfectly white...bloody cats...or so I thought. Headed over the gate into the field and another check with the lamp showed the same eyes...I thought I better check as the farm cats dont normally head off in the direction that the eyes had gone in..NV on ..FOX....NUMPTY Managed to get set up and he was still there. He dropped at about 70 yards to a chest shot. Happy farmer and a lesson learnt.

    You cheeky swines It isnt easy when evenings and weekends are the only time we can do stuff. We have done a fair bit since we started in Feb but have lost a lot of time with the unexpected issues. We have replaced about half of the oak floor joist and a main beam, downstairs, built 2 new full height structural walls, installed new stairs, replaced a load of flooring upstairs.... Currently...knocking through a main external wall (which is now internal) to make the front room bigger. Wall is 500mm thick stone so fun and games with doing that and not collapsing the wall on top of us Thats probably bored you all to tears for the moment.

    Carlsberg year on the deer and other pics.

    Stunning, stunning and more stunning Some lovely Sika stags there mate. Out of interest have you built another house just to house the trophies or do you have one enormous wall
