The video is shot of a hunting expedition by cousins for foxes. In the opening scene there was a fox sleeping in a bed of grass.

Having missed the fox in the first hunting excursion, the cousins again went out on another day, this time during winter and in an open field. The ground was covered in snow and there wasn’t any animal in sight. In the course of this segment in the video, you’ll hear the hunters using a whistle call hoping to catch the attention of nearby foxes. This went on for a couple more minutes without success, making you think there weren’t any foxes or any animals out there.

However, after a few more waiting the hunters’ patience paid off. A fox came out of its cover and heard the call. It became curious and came nearer. A shot rang out but missed again. This was about 108 yards away, so it was a pretty hard shot to make especially if you’ve been waiting long in the cold. Then two shots again from the .17 rifle caught the fox and finally killed it.

In the next scene, the video shows two foxes playing and probably mating so the hunters decided not to kill them. This is because they think want some pairs to breed to help keep the population on foxes in the wild right.
