Moved to wildlife talk so hope you get more responses. Not for Photo sharing venue.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

I found one thing that helped me learn to track moving targets better was to go down to our local dock where the clam boats come in to offload and practicing tracking the seagulls and other smaller birds flying all around. Unlike smaller birds seagulls are fairly predictable in their flight patterns so you can get used to the necessary technique as well as needed settings (like high enough shutter speed).

As for practicing shooting land-based critters find a stretch of wilderness where you know there are animals and hunker down somewhere you know they'll show up to eventually, like a water source, and just wait for them to show.

Enjoy your shooting and be sure to read through some of the helpful tips in this forum such as this thread on Stalking vs. Waiting: POTN Wildlife Discussion: Stalking vs. Waiting
