Default By the light of the moon

Gang,

This was a fun hunt. I have local spot that always produces, so I hit it last night before the wind picked up. Through my thermal scanner, I saw this frisky fox approach. It zipped into the field and I quickly found it in my scope. Side note: my Howa/ATN combo is out of commission due to the fact that Ali had to send the scope back to the factory for repair. Anyhow, as soon as I turned on the red LED light, the fox bolted into the security of the woods. I could see it with the thermal, and switched sounds to Platinum Gray Fox, and the fox raced back into the field.

This time, I left the light off and relied solely on the light of the moon and the blanket of snow. My trusty Rem 700 was true again! Best shooting rifle ever!

Dogfool... my ATN has to go back because it always “freezes up” while on stand
