Paintballing company offers you the chance to go “foxhunting”

Tired of hunting hankerchiefs and socks?

A paintballing company believes it has the solution for those frustrated by the hunting ban – with the opportunity to hunt a “fox” once again.

This Charlie, however, is an employee of UKPaintball dressed in a fox outfit.

A spokesman for UKPaintball said: “To maximise authenticity, all participants will don traditional hunting attire and there will even be a bugle [sic] to sound the start of the hunt.”

The first player to land a shot on target wins. Sessions will be available from early July in Whyteleafe, Surrey.

The delay should give UKPaintball time to iron out one little problem – a volunteer to be the fox.

“That will be the most difficult part,” said the spokesman.

“But we have a dedicated team here and I’m sure somebody will put themselves forward.”

A three-hour “fox hunt” costs £39.99 per person: www.ukpaintball.co.uk.
