Nothing he could have shot the vixen 1/2 mile away from her cubs .but Do you post the pictures ? Its not just us that look on shooting forums.

like it or not its ammunition for Animal welfare laws .


Its lawful pest control. If someone doesnt like it they can go back and live in fantasy land.

Had an argument on FB the other night lads crying about some bloke whod shot a cub.

Every Fox you leave will probably kill hundreds of other animals.

It would be better if pictures of "" anything"" that is amunition to antis and all do gooders weren't uploaded to hunting/ shooting forums of any kind, don't give them any amunition to throw back at us!. and I don't mean pics of a days pigeon/ crow shooting I'm mean pics of things that will gain public support

Just take a step back and use whatever is between your ears !

if you want to post pictures of dead foxes thats up to each individual. But its how the picture is taken.

theres a picture of a bloke and his son behind a grassed fox just before, no one can tell if its milky, they both have their faces uncovered.

can you see the difference ? Im not ant by a long way but theres no way Id risk everyone elses shooting by posting silly pictures trying to prove to everybody whos shot, dug or run foxs that Im an alpha male.

his other picture was taken down as he posted a Rabbit his powerful HMR had destroyed. Bad shot in the real world .

Sporting pictures means what ?

A shot proud of his bag , pigeons , Crows whatever

a stalker at the side of a Deer or enjoying a beautiful mountainside

large fish caught

The great outdoors

or

a mangled rabbit carcass

a dead fox held up by Rambo and the Deliverance blokes love child

Ok Ill bite, photographs of a bag of 200 pigeons over stubble. Thats a lot of broods left to starve in the nest. Im not against posting sporting pictures, I have issue with:

1. Some members having an invisible and baseless code that they justify to themselves based upon their own sensitivities.

2. Personal insults.

Keyboard warriors should talkto people like you would talk in real life. Perhaps if sporting pictures are sensitive matter then this section of the forum should be made private.

Yes I shoot foxes,avoidingthis time of year, but I understand pest control and do not judge those who have to manage issues.

:lol:love it.

Unfortunately fox predation is rife this time of the year so they must in such circumstances be managed at this time.

Each to there own but for me, maybe best to leave such pics on the phone.

Im not judging pest control ! I shoot foxs, but usually from August until February/March

But I dont brag a bout it, we as a group Have to have morality and respect for what we do.
we cant hide behind its a legitimate or legal sport !
Hunting was legal supposedly for Rich andnoble people , if they lost their battle what chance have we got ?
Erosion of your sporting life is happening and unstoppable we dont need to speed it up.

Just some common sense required. The nation relies on that now. The vast majority of folk who shot a milky vixen (hopefully for valid reason not just because its on there permission) would not putthe picture on here. It is a big white hunter fail. Likewise if someone was to shoot a milky vixen I would hope the majority endeavour to find and deal withthe cubs, although now the dog fox should be able to provide for them

I think youre confused, it isnt SPORT, its called PEST control.

You shoot your foxes when you want, and others will shoot foxes when they NEED to be shot , at lambing time, at mating time , milky , cubs , they are VERMIN.
They do not require respect, or for us to wait till the cubs come up to killing age.

When it comes down to posting pictures, its something I dont choose to do , but if others want to, and its within forum rules , who on earth are you to tell them they cant ?
As for the personal insults, well ... that says a lot about you.

On Shooting foxes ? , 'Like father like son' My shooting buddies pic, he couldnt believe the uproar that caused !

The farm in question, told us early March to not attend due to CV19 concerns ect, 2 weeks later , and theres bits of lamb all over the place, he begged us to come up during early lockdown and sort it, which we have done very effectively.
So much so , the local hunt has told us to stop shooting them , as there will be none left when the hunt season starts:lol:

Thats not true though is it ? If it was you would not have posted the Rabbit picture that was deleted

I dontno you, your correct but Im pointing out that your pictures can be used to judge us all .

But to use your Phrase its not sport its pest control ! Sort of defeats your arguments about it being on sporting pictures thread

this thread could do with ending

Seems to me you've made your judgement on a matter that YOU don't agree with.
So , we all need to base OUR moral code on yours, that's not how it works though.

There is material on the internet of far worse things than a shot milky vixen.
If you feel so strongly about such things , get out there and fill your boots.

Camouflaged, masked and at night.

All totally legal of course - But you have to ask yourself how the 'uncountrified' people see this.

Secretive and definitely Illegal would be their totally wrong interpretation.

I have shot hundreds of foxes over my very long time in keepering and conservation.

Never felt the need or desire to post a picture of any of it.

Why give the antis more ammunition for their cause and make them even more anti?

Keep it like the fowlers code - The only thing you leave behind for others to see is feathers and trodden grass.

Country Sports and activities need allies not enemies. A little discretion is needed on occasions.

Hopefully we have nothing to hide - But we don't need to be so blatant about it either.

Just the thoughts of an old man...
