A couple of weeks back, I got together with a couple of the boys and we headed out to a property we have all hunted before, looking to put some venison in the freezer.
When there was a break in the rain, out it come and we checked out its quality. While doing this we spotted a fox cruising around the back of a mob of sheep not far from camp.
We grabbed the gear, rifles, Silvafox Whistle and Maxtoch torches jumped on the ute and head out. We where well prepared with several Maxtoch torches ready to go.
The MPRO Archer with Red LED, its little brother the M1 Archer with pressure switch mounted to the .22, and a couple of E3 Red-hat headlamps. Lighting things up wasn’t going to be a problem.
The Silvafox worked a treat pulling them away from the sheep to get a clear shot. Watching through my scope, as they came in on the red light of the MPRO Archer. Once they came into range using the pressure switch on the M1Archer I lit them up, making sure they were clear of the sheep and took that quick shot. Fox down.
It was a good night out made easy with good gear. The Silvafox Whistle was awesome at gaining the attention for the foxes straight away, and drawing them away from their dinner plans.
Good Gear, Good night.
