    Well done, but remain vigilant in case his mate or kids are still in the area. Our job never ends.

    I just saw our fox buddy walking around the chicken run. Time for the electric fence! They are so quick, tkodad, you must be good (and fast) shot!

    Hah, I bet she was awake after that! My hubby dispatched a skunk the other night, right between the eyes. I was luckier than your missis, I didn't hear a thing!

    Thanks for the tip! We have a den nearby, and it's a shame to shoot them, but if they are messing with my chickens all bets are off!
