Hi Folks This was a one time event, probably not to be emulated. Last night early, I gazed out my office window, contemplating broccoli, zuchini, basil. Right under my nose the most beautiful red fox pops up and proceeds to the chicken coop door. At 15 feet I had a perfect shot to put a .22 bullet through his ear! ! ! Added training emphasis was provided by the ricochet through a piece of plywood, and off the propane tank. The uproar from the hens and old chanteclair must have made an impression as well. That beggar is probably still making miles out of here. TeeHee.
