Fox update

This is a photo of the shot I took of Mr Fox and missed. Shot too high....

This is the view I had of my target. Had to shoot under the tree/shrub from about 16 meters away.

Had a shot at Mr Fox last night. Big boy he was! I shot from about 16m away, my horizontal aim perfect, vertical aim, too high by 7cm… I lodged the arrow in the shed where it could have been pinned… My target arrow went through the shed and into my work bench where the head is still stuck.

There are definitely 2 foxes, as the one I shot at was big and bold, very long in the body and tail not overly bushy.  I’m calling this one Mr Fox and he has to go. I have seen Mr Fox during the day a few times now, he has been the one getting the chickens during the day and the one who bit through the chicken tractor to get the ones in there. Mr Fox is responsible for the death of The General and for this, he is sentenced to death.

The second one I tracked last night and which has also been regularly visiting, was small, elegant, large bushy tail and wispy face. It has more of a white/grey sheen to it and is much more wary than Mr Fox, but is brave enough to watch TV with us. The second one I’m calling Moonlight, as it is the one I saw by moonlight a few weeks back and was mesmerized by. Moonlight… hard to say if I want to take this one out… it is such a beautiful looking creature…
