I might as well post one or two of these here, the first is a fantastic example of how much better the Ar-10 works for me when it comes to anchoring dogs to the ground.  168 gr A-max to the back of the head dose have some negitive effect on the pelts...


The second is a picture of my first red fox.... I canít even begin to explain how exited I was to see this little guy in the cross hairs.  This has got to be one of the most gorgeous predators I have ever taken.  He is going off the taxidermist today....

thats an awesome picture of that fox  :tup: I need a red fox in my house ...I have killed a few way back when and trapped many ...I have one Grey fox mounted I killed in P.A in 2002 and I froze it solid to get it back to Washington...All that was crazy when it went threw the check station at the air port  :dunno: :chuckle: They thought I had a dead frozen DOG ....... :chuckle: :chuckle:

The fox is a very cool looking animal.  This one sits in my living room.

O.k I hit it really hard today ..went up around MT.Baker where I thought i would have a chance at a bobby but after countless set ups and walking my butt off I tried one more spot and I was calling for about 10 min .When I saw 2 dang nice ones running down the logging road which is gated and no one has been there in months So Let them get about 100 yrds when all the sudden the wind changed and they did a 360 and headed back up the way they came from So I took a deep breath as the lead dog hit the crosshairs I squeezed and all I saw legs and lots of hair flipping around in the snow  :chuckle: :dunno: I jacked out the shell and pulled up on the other one which was pushing 200 or better and squeezed again to watch the bullet hit right in front of it ...dang an inch lower it would of been behind the head  :bash: A coyote is the only animal I do not get pi$$ed when I miss but nock on wood I do not miss many  :chuckle: :tung: Well this is another dandy and I will be honest with ya they DO NOT GET MUCH NICER THAN THIS ON THE WETSIDE  :tup:

~  ~One of my favorite clothing patterns is camouflage. Because when you're in the woods it makes you blend in. But when you're not it does just the opposite. It's like "hey, there's an *censored*."Ē

One moment you're flying south for the winter, then - BANG - gravy.

I think that bobbing and weaving is in the DNA of the dogs out here.  Seems they don't run a straight line anymore.  Sometimes I think I'm better off shooting a round in the dirt to scare them into it  :chuckle:

Thanks Tripps, a guy in Idaho did the taxidermy work.  Very nice looking dog Bowhunter, he's got some really good dark features.

VarmintVentilator, that thing is awesome... I called the taxidermist last night to see what the possibilities were of getting a mount similar to yours & he told me that mine was a little to tore up for that...  :bash: :bash:So I guess I will have to find another one...

Swag, that really sucks, it's hard to keep from tearing those little critters up to bad with a bullet.  Hope you get another one.  This one of mine is the only fox I've ever seen on the ranch, but I didn't like him walking around my house and other buildings looking for his meal.  (chickens, kittens and such.)
