Roy Lupton hits back at Dom after an embarrassing photo in the March issue of Sporting Shooter – and talks about foxing calibres, too
Inspired by a chilly Highland adventure, Roy is hoping for some frost back home, but instead ends up making the best of a very soggy situation...
With the temperatures dropping and the foxing activity heating up, the longer winter nights are providing some good results – although there are a couple of slippery targets that have proven a little trickier to catch up with.
Nihil desperandum, says Roy Lupton, as his foxing foray threatens to go awry

After getting jiggy with the Lightforce catalogue, we have secured this brilliant HID 170 handheld lamp as an extra prize!
There have been great leaps in lamping technology in recent years, notable in terms of LED illumination and battery technology. Cluson Engineering’s latest Clulite offering, the Interceptor Gun Light seems to combine everything that is good in one neat package. It has a tight and powerful 300m beam, easy switching between high and low power, a quick charge time and three hours continuous high power use from a single charge.
During the shooting season I try to keep a freezer full of game that later in the year I use for either photo sessions or for training the cockers. In truth, I quite often realise I have forgotten to get them out to defrost or, as happened the other day, I forgot I had got them out and Mrs R found a rather smelly mess in her workshop!
