The 3.5-minute video was uploaded by Fieldsports Channel and shows Sporting Shooter editor Dom Holtam and main hunter Roy Lupton hunting foxes in June. The video starts with a group of hunters checking out equipment they can bring to the hunt.

The group was dressed in camouflage, a very common hunting outfit as it makes you invisible in a forest setting, or even in a vast plain with tall grasses. In the first kill in the video, the fox seems unaware of its proximity to the group of hunters. And has made no attempt to cover itself or run. You can even see there seems to be a vehicle on the edge of the camera shot. So, Roy was able to easily shoot the fox.

As the video continues, the commentator said that the editor of Sporting Shooter has given Roy Lupton an electronic fox call for the hunt. He uses it to call a female fox he’s spotted in the field, and then he shoots it dead on with a rifle that he’s positioned on the ground for stability.

In the next scene, Roy positions himself on top of a ridge overlooking the hunting ground. His scoped rifle helps him aim at faraway foxes, one which he shot at about 220 yards away. He again uses the fox call to lure the foxes out and he shots another one. Clearly, the fox call is a very effective tool for hunting because it really draws the foxes out of their hideouts.

In total, Roy Lupton shot 4 foxes for the day with the use of some high-tech equipment and a very good hunting rifle with a powerful scope.
