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.

    Thank you.

  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.

    Good day today as I've just got back after picking up a new 200 acre farm permission. After having a good chat with the farmer and getting him to sign my permission paperwork and then having a walk around some of the land, he told me I was free to come and go as I pleased and it was ok for me to shoot any quarry on his land that I was allowed to including and specifically FOX...............as he'd been having some Charlie problems with his chickens.

    North Wales police authority discourage shooting fox with 17HMR (biggest calibre I've got) so I could well be putting in for a new CF fox calibre over the coming weeks so suggestions on what to go for please :)

    I don't think I'll need anything bigger than a fox calibre (no deer etc. on any of my permissions), max range will be 250-300 yards, I can't see me reloading so I'll be buying the ammunition so I hope these points help with your suggestions.

    You could ask the FEO if you could use your .17HMR but if you want to go large then think about whether or not you might want to go stalking at some time in the future. If you do then probably a .243 or if you definitely won't tackle deer then a .223 is probably the sensible option. There are some other suitable calibres but .223 should be simple to find ammo pretty well anywhere.

    200 Acres is a small bit of land In CF fox shooting terms if it's not woodland. If that's the only bit of land you are shooting foxes on is it worth the expense and hassle of CF ??
    Were it me I would use the HMR and shotgun to bait points or call them in. You are not going to be talking many foxes on 200 acres, on average land about half will be CF safe.
    But obviously if you want to use this opportunity to get a CF ignore this crack on and have fun Lol.
    Cheers Andy

    .22-250 or .223 plenty of ammo available.

    some like .204 but ive heard can be ammo fussy and you seem to either get a good one or bad one.
