    Nothing goes to waste, the tails get stripped and cured then sold to the terrier men, the rest I put in the middle of the main road and giggle as townies swerve to avoid them.

  3. It's a bloody pity the arse fell out of the fur market. A good pelt would get some real pocket money.
  4. I prefer if possible to trap them alive and then release them on the property of people who have failed to pay their bills in a timely manner.

    There is still money but its not easy and rather specialist and not a lot of money for the effort esp when you have to clean the pelts up a lot!
  6. We got given a fox cub by a gamekeeper when on patrol comp training in Sennybridge, skinned and splayed over an open fire, cooked fairly quickly but tastes like shit. The person who got the cub was a Kiwi and thought he was as warry as ****, so kept the pelt and decided to decorate his Mk6 with it, 2 hours later, was eaten alive by fleas. Mind, it did look good, head at the front, legs dangling, via the elastic, on four corners and the brush hanging down behind :)

  8. I just throw them on top of the hedges, let the farmer know I have been about
  9. •Take one fox. Skin it and gut it.•Hang the fox in running water for three days.•Cook with garlic, onion and tomato, as if you were cooking rabbit the Italian way: lay in a dish, cover, and stew for about an hour and a half.•I would probably cut the fox into halves, not quarters.•Serve with chestnut pasta, and for wine: a good Falerian.It's not generally known that the Thais eat a lot of fox. It's the closest thing that Chinese, Thais and Malays can legally get to dog. In fact, Manchester is one of the prime markets for selling shot fox to Thais. There's also fillet of badger - most West Country pubs used to have badger ham on the bar - but that's another story.

  11. I hope I can still see straight to shoot when I'm 100 +
  12. Just be bloody careful that you don't cut the glands when skinning!
  13. In all seriousness Id have to be very bloody hungry to eat a fox , they `kin stink and are covered in fleas , badgers aren't a lot better ,I`ve tried squirrel and hedgehog , not to bad , rook = yuk , pigeon breast quiet pleasant , rabbit okay , but then theres the wild stuff I go out of my way to shoot/eat , favorite three being wild duck , venison , wild boar.
