It's almost January 1, and as most of you know, that means its time to hit the woods with a rifle, yes a rifle. I'm going to be using a 243 with 80 grain psp. I know this isn't practical for fox but its what I got and I'm gonna make it work. If you guys got any tips for other 243 ammo options, let me know. Don't comment saying buy something smaller, that's so impractical. It's not impractical. It's legal, it's what I got, so I'm gonna use it. The only thing I might buy is differint rounds. So let me know if you know of any other rounds that will reduce pelt damage and that are legal. It would be greatly appreciated. Also what are you guys gonna be hittin the woods with?

can't wait to hear about the guy in a ghillie suit with an AR sneaking down the field edge, down the road from a school.

.243 is a good Fox/Yote round. Just need to do a little sewing if your gonna sell the fur. No big deal.

I hear more and more remarks about this rifle season. If your skeered stay home. If your pissed your trap animals are getting shot too bad. Just like Bear season it's here to stay.

If everyone hunts the way they're supposed to and stays out of safety zones, they'll be too far away to tell that they have an AR compared to any other gun. Most people really don't know the difference.

IMO. 75% of the guys just want to walk around nj woods with a rifle.

Thanks everyone. I'll have to try out those 58 gr winchester or hornady rounds. I had some 80 gr that I use for deer in pa. So I'll be buying some of those lighter ones

if that was directed to me Steveo, you're wrong.
i may catch a few k9 a year. more of a **** guy. and i trap private properties. no one should be there anyway.

i just hope the 6 day mentality stays out of this season. it will be interesting.
and here to stay depends on how the hunters act. it can be taken away. public pressure removed the foot hold trap. public pressure can come back to bite us.

i agree with rdfhunter

Not directed at anyone in particular UB. I just think some people on here have caved to the black gun media hype. An AR15 is a rifle just like any other. There is no difference between Chuck hunting and Pred hunting. You can use the same rifles and guys have been shooting Chucks forever with no problems. I don't know what you mean by 6 day mentality. Trespassers?

get out of my way, here i come.
what posted sign?


yeah. all the joys of 6 day.


i hope it does go well. i for one will be out with my rifle. i have been calling k9's off and on for 25 years. ran hounds with a guy for years also. i like it, just hope it goes well.
i think the public will have some issues. public perception means a lot.
public perception about 6 day isn't the best. heck, a lot of hunters hate 6 day.
now we have guys with rifles and no orange. look at the post above this one. so many questions about what is legal, days before the season starts. not going after lungbuster in any way. but how many guys WILL be out with a muzzle break and magazines and bayonet lug

I'll be using a .17 HMR (I'll probably get a lot of haters) with win varmint 17 gr loads. It'll definitely put down the foxes and is a proven load for yotes under 100 yards.

I am asking because I don't live in NJ anymore and first year hunting with rifle in NJ.

I have a shotgun to use which I use for Gun season.

If it comes down to it will use shotgun.

I am/will not be hunting get alone and have been hunting for a one time. Just trying out the predator hunt for the first time.


As far as days from the season opener, well I will not be able to hunt until 2 weeks from now. So I have time and this was a last minute invite by a friend.

I have been wanting to do this for a couple years and was going to go with nightstalker a couple years ago.

Sorry for moving to a free state where we do not have complicated regs regarding firearms. :)
