Many people believe that if you are successful on the first day of the year, it will be a good year. Having this is mind I was out deer stalking at about noon. I wanted to have a long walk and check zero of my rifle. Absolutely nothing was moving and when it was getting dark, best time to sit and wait for deer, it started raining…
I was on my way to the track and back to the car, when I spotted something on the track not so far away. There was a fox sitting in the middle of the track about 50m away looking at me.
Very, very slowly I took the rifle of my shoulder and put it on the sticks. The fox was still looking at me, when I got him in the cross hairs. I put the cross on his chest and squeezed the trigger. He dropped on the spot.
Now looking forward to having a good year hunting 😉
