1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    got this beauty last night,just shy of 200 yds off sticks.
    could only see his head and shoulders and dropped him with a head shot using my .22-250 and 50 grn v-max.
    he wouldn`t come any closer in even though I tried for 20 mins.
    saw a few more but they didn`t want to play no matter what I squeaked.

    Until the warning dead stuff I was half wondering if the last nights dog refered to a poor woman you had met last night :p

    Its astonishing how much damage a 22-250 will do, I just got asked to help clear out 5 foxes from a local farm unfortunately the lands only cert for .22rf :down: so currently planning on how to deal with it without wounding it,

    lets be clear on this point regarding foxes,deer etc and an "open forum"
    unless you have these quarry species on your ticket with the correct calibre stated by your licencing authority.YOU ARE BREAKING THE LAW if you shoot them

    There is no legislative obstacle to using any firearm for fox control, unless prohibited by a condition on your firearm certificate. ( saying foxes may not be shot with xyz firearm or a firearm with no vermin or AOLQ condition)

    Foxes fall within the definition of "vermin" and no court has said otherwise. If "vermin" is featured in the certificate condition it is lawful to cull them with the rifle.

    However using an air rifle or a calibre of rifle which was likely to wound a fox rather than achieve a clean kill could lay you open to prosecution under animal welfare legislation.
    If you had not used in a way recommended in guidance. ( a .22lr at range, for example)
    Just because a licensing authority will not grant a Rimfire for fox control and suggest you apply for a larger caliber does not mean if you have a Rimfire for general vermin control you may not use it on foxes.
    Cheers Andy

    I agree with you on this as I have both .22LR and 17HMR which although discouraged by my FEO for shooting fox it doesn't state anything on my licence about NOT shooting foxes. This I what it says about taking foxes in the "Guide in Firearms Licensing Law" booklet:

    Fox and other medium quarry4 - Yes for .17 Remington & HMR, .22 Hornet and WMR – also .22 RF in certain circumstance (see 13.25))

    this is a direct quote from the front page of my "open" firearms certificate relating to "conditions" of the firearms owned by me
    .............."shall be used for shooting vermin,deer and foxes and ANY LAWFUL QUARRY SUITABLE FOR THAT CALIBRE and for zeroing on ranges or land over which the holder has lawful authority to shoot"

    I don`t know if this is just west yorks,but foxes are not classed as vermin

    I have my ticket stated with AOLQ on it, plus spoken the feo about best practise and they recommended using the .17hmr for safety reasons at close range on this permission, as have several friends and RFD's.

    No point getting on your high horse about things and assuming everyone but yourself is an idiot unable to comprehend simple wording on a firearms ticket or the law.

    And on the "open forum" point, I would argue that its best not to encourage long range head shots on fox, granted you got a very nice clean headshot on this fox but not everyone can mange that from sticks at 200yds and may result in a few foxes with their jaws smashed off.
