The Beaver & the Squirrel..."Peek-A-Boo"

10 posts in this topic

Just for the record ladies and gentlemen, the pic's that I've been posting to date were taken via my 70 X 200 L series. I am now in the market for a 100 X 400 which will greatly benefit me when I'm out in the field searching for subjects.

In the mean time, I'll keep hacking around with what I have!

Nice work, Stu! You'll like the 100-400. It's a great and flexible piece of glass. For nearly four years, almost all my nature and other photography was done with just three Canon lenses: The 100-400, 100 macro and 17-40.

Are you looking for new or used? I just shot you an e-mail with some good options in either case.

Stu, I just got my 100-400 a couple of weeks ago, I love it. Got a deep learning curve though I am finding especially out at 400mm with a hood on. Trying to hold it still is a hard thing to do.

Really liked the first shot of the squirrel! You'll love the 100-400!

Paul, I know what you mean...Had the same problem, just turn up the ISO a bit more. \:\)

    • Where is the part where I say I am OK with it?
    • The CWD 'outbreak' in the 4 counties in the NW part of Wisconsin I believe is one case in the NW part of Barron County, or some where close to where those counties all meet.  All counties within X miles (40 miles?) of a positive result are considered CWD counties.  For the year or two after the found positive in that area the MN DNR did test deer in the neighboring MN area(s.)  I was hunting in both Burnett County, WI and east of Hinckley, MN in the year the positive test was found.  It's been awhile, the numbers might be off, but that was generally what happened.   How much money do you want our DNR to spend on so few positive results so far away?
    • We should never have Koivu on the ice in a 3 on 3 OT...Wait, he scored last night. He is phenomenal in OT, finishes with the same move Parise tried moments before him and failed. WTG Koivu! Insert half sarcastic, half praise here... Needed the win, got it. Mcdavid held in check.   Parise is the highest paid 4th line player. There is still something wrong with him. His stride hasn't looked right in over a year. Hope he just stays off the ice if he isn't going to get it together.
    • Looks like after today we'll be making some of the hard stuff!!! Here in the metro anyways
    • Waiting on a reply from the DNR but should be soon
    • They are all the same as the other hook models just a different screen. The Hook is just a re-branded Elite Chrip.
    • Appeared to be a nice product. I was not impressed with the sales guy or who ever he was at the Blane show. I asked if they sell the LED extrusion they had running along both sides of the trailer and he said its their own design I can get them if I buy a trailer bla bla bla... Once I stepped away a salesman from Coates RV said that he can get the extrusion for me being its nothing special! I have little time for people that lie to me, if he didn't know a better answer is no we don't sell to the public or i don't know.
    • One reason for me to be muzzleloading is to scout areas for next bow season.  I liked this low area I found yesterday.  I got a good feel for how the deer use it.  Saw one small 8 and had two put their tracks in mine, but out of sight.  I'd hunt it differently with a bow.  
    • wear a good balaclava and get a open face with a cold weather breath box never had a problem
