This was a great learning experience today. The first lesson that I learned is that with 3 hunters and a camera man, setup is critical to success. I setup on the left of the 3 hunters with the birds roosted also to the left so that I could get unobstructed video. The video would have been better if I had set up where I could see the hunters while the birds were coming in. I also wouldn’t have had 3 blazing barrels in my face when the birds decided to run back the way that they came from. At least we got 2 of the 3.
Thanks to Dad, Uncle Larry and Rick S. for all the shooting. Note that Larry did get his bird with only 1 shot. He just tried to help the other guys finish the job on their birds.
