I haven't visited this forum group much before but after reading some of the requests for information I think that hunting magazines and websites would have helpful information. A lot of people are offended by those who hunt to put venison or roast duck on the table. But learning to hunt for wildlife photography is no different than the skills that these publications strive to pass along except you don't need the knowledge of vital organ location or field dressing techniques. It does helps us to understand game animal behavior like the migration patterns of waterfowl and the cycle of the deer and elk rut. Many of their advertised products are to get people closer to animals; camo clothing and blinds, scent elimination systems, and feeding products. Trail cameras help to learn the habits and schedules that the animals have. Many of the reviews that they publish introduce new products and answer questions as to their operation and effectiveness.
As I find my self grinning at some of the questions I find here I'm sure some of my photography questions would make many of you grin or worse as they would show my lack of formal training in photography. My Dad raised me hunting and I've brought those skills along for the ride into wildlife photography. Here's a link to one of my Face Book albums of my images from a small flood control lake that is literally across the road (and a half mile through the woods) from my home. (You don't have to have a FB account to view the album with this link.)
I know there are lots of not so good images and several that are from burst sequences that need thinning out but they all contribute to the Teasley Lake story. The coyote and bobcat were called in using cottontail distress.
Don't hold my hunting background against me as it was how I was raised. My Dad is finally adjusting to my taking a camera instead of a gun. It's helped that the GA DNR has used a few of my images.
The buck and wood ducks images for the "Season Dates" page on this web site are mine:
Don't hesitate to ask me a hunting related question that may help you out. And do consider perusing the hunting websites and forums for some answers.
