Sporting Shooter - - Foxing -

I had a very busy au­tumn shoot­ing foxes. It seemed worse than any other year; they just kept turn­ing up – or has it al­ways been the same? In the past, I would lamp un­til I started to blank or I felt I would do more harm than good, scar­ing the birds with the light, or driv­ing through them.

This year I’ve been us­ing night vi­sion (NV) and the dif­fer­ence with NV is that if you just go and sit and wait, with the wind in your face, you will see what you have on your place and most of the time get them. The scope and spot­ter I use are at the lower end of the mar­ket in terms of price, but I have had so much suc­cess with them. So, no, I think per­haps it has al­ways been the same, it’s just that this year I am able to keep shoot­ing them.

Re­cently, I at­tended a night vi­son demo evening with Thomas Jacks and my lo­cal gun shop Green­fields. Thomas Jacks are run­ning these all over the coun­try. If you are think­ing of go­ing over to NV, I would highly rec­om­mend get­ting along to one of them – it will give you a chance to test the prod­ucts and get ex­pert ad­vice on how to use them. Sim­i­larly, if you are think­ing of up­grad­ing, the demo evenings give you a chance to see the dif­fer­ence be­tween what you have and what else is out there. I was very im­pressed.
