2013 1st edition. 4to (195 x 252mm). Pp192. Colour photographs and illustrations throughout. Green boards, spine titled in gilt. Mint in dust-wrapper. A practical guide to fox control with many accounts of the author's own experiences. "This fieldcraft book uses a number of narratives - usually night shooting of foxes - to show how to dispose of pests that endanger livestock, providing the best technical tips and pointers a pest controller needs. The author covers the year month-by-month, discussing how the changes of the seasons contribute to changes of hunting style. Each month includes first-hand accounts of hunts to demonstrate some of the challenges that foxers may be faced with as the seasons and weather change. Each of the narratives is accompanied by photographs and step-by-step line drawings, along with highlights of fieldcraft techniques. Night-vision and thermal-imaging equipment have now become mainstream and A Foxer's Year covers their usage in detail." The foreword is by Robert Bucknell. Contents include:- A frantic time in the fog; Dark fox; A game for two; Three shoots in a day; A foxy tale of lambs' tails; 'Ee ain't going to beat, I's sure 'o that'; The flying squirrel that bit back; More deadly than the male; Birth night; Dogged pursuit; A bit of a drag; Three dog night; Helping a keeper; Daylight marauder; Hunt for a lamb killer; Reds in the night; Dealing with a lamb killer; Half fox, half rat; Carrion feeders; Duck killer; Free range fox; A good start; Last light dog; Nest raider; Woodpecker killer; Cub clear-up; Pimp my sticks; A fourhead problem; Fighting foxes; I love it when a plan comes together; Aural six; Rain stops play; Crane-fly catchers; Heavy load; Afterbirth and the afterlife; Keeping it real; Foxing in the moonlit night; Natural warnings; A really tough mission; An old adversary; Bird strike; An excellent session!; Four down; Honour restored; Hard nuts and whole nuts.; Four by twos; Additive foxing; Four-foot owl; Four on the floor; High five; First kill for the thermal; Ten-minute chicken killer.
