I had been having a problem with some coyotes not responding to my calls and hanging up about 450 yards in a waterway. While I can put the bullet on the fur from that range the 55 grain .223 would not deliver a clean kill so I grabbed the 30-06 with 110 V-max load and went out to snipe the educated crew.

Instead of the coyotes, I had this pretty guy bark at me from 250 yards...




My first Fox!

Dawgdad, I've been thinking of trying the 110gr V-max, you have just answered my question. Good hunting btw as we have lots of foxes and yotes here in ia.

A nice red. With our coyote population in decline, we are now having Red Fox move into our area. Been seeing quite a few lately. That 06 must have done a real number on this guy. Very Happy

That's what I'm thinking to. I haven't decided on a varmint gun yet so I'm still stuck with my deer calibers. But haven't gotten a shot yet.

The 110 V-max was way more than enough for this fox but the exit wound is sewable. I will tan this hide and make a wall hannging out of it. the damage was limited to a horizontal tear about 3" long. no lungs or heart inside the rib cage and two ribs misssing on the off side.


I use a Maximum load of IMR 4064 and get about 3400 fps from the 110 V-max in my Winchester Model 70.
