Default A Few Foxes From England

Good evening from across the pond.
Here's a few foxes from this season so far, all shot while out deer stalking with either my .243 or .308
My main reasons for controlling foxes are for the protection of game birds and other ground nesting birds, stock protection as foxes do kill lambs and we have a small deer species called muntjac and foxes definitely predate on their fawns.

Thank you for the kind replies chaps.
My firearms certificate has had a variation put on it for a .22-250 and sound moderator as there are far too many foxes about which are impacting the muntjac population. I've been slacking on targeting them so I've bought some scope mountable lights and I'll be spending some more nights out with the Foxpro, I do love seeing foxes about and have spent many hours watching them but they do need to be kept in check.

Yes they certainly don't go hungry as we have thousands of rabbits, rats and mice to hunt and plenty of pheasants and partridge with an additional fawn or lamb for good measure.
