Hunting the sly fox can be a challenge even for the best hunters, with the best rifles.

It sounds like a feat best left to the experts, and those who are truly proficient with a recurve.

That is what happened as one hunter whistled a fox to within 25 yards for a shot. It took a finishing shot to put the fox down for good, but it’s still an amazing accomplishment.
