Mark Ripley takes us out on another foxing mission armed with his trusty .223 topped with the latest in thermal technology – the Pulsar Thermion 2 XP50 Pro riflescope from Thomas Jacks Ltd. Using his Pulsar Accolade 2 LRF XP50 Pro binoculars, also from Thomas Jacks Ltd, Mark soon finds a fox or two out on the freshly cut fields and puts the thermal pairing to the test. Then Tom Payne takes on pigeons over an early winter barley stubble. With aims to protect standing wheat crops, and the weather drawing in, can he fill his bag before the rain hits?
