This fieldcraft book uses a number of narratives – usually night shooting of foxes – to show how to dispose of pests that endanger livestock, providing the best technical tips and pointers a pest controller needs. The author covers the year month-by-month, discussing how the changes of the seasons contribute to changes of hunting style. Each month includes first-hand accounts of hunts to demonstrate some of the challenges that foxers may be faced with as the seasons and weather change. Each of the narratives is accompanied by photographs and step-by-step line drawings, along with highlights of fieldcraft techniques. Night-vision and thermal-imaging equipment have now become mainstream and A Foxer's Year covers their usage in detail.
