Lamping the night away

Recommended Posts

I'm not keen on red filters either, except when rabbiting at fairly short ranges. Amber filters I find a little better, but I prefer a white light. IMHO

iv'e got red and amber i will try,as for not shining directly at the fox,the tracer max pro has a **** at the back for lining up the beam with the cross hairs of the scope,what sort of distance should i do this at,maybe there's no point doing this if we shouldn't shine directly at the target.

I always shine directly at the fox when taking the shot, always. You need to be able to see as best you can.

Thats good advice john :( nothing more dodgy than firing a rifle at a dark outline when you cant be totally sure its a fox :good:

When I get my caller back and new .223 set up, there's gonna be a heap of unlucky foxes in that spot!

 

Yes, thats when you most likely see none :lol: , allways the same, their everywhere, when you have no gun, or the proper one :lol::D

 

Keep up the good work John, plenty to do yet. ;):good:

I think the locals called their cousins in.

 

:good: , thats what happens John, shoot one and another is allways their to take its place, especially from now onwards, as cubs look for a place of their own. ;)
