Oct Duck Hunt

11 posts in this topic

I wanted to take some hunting shots last week while I was out last week. Unfortunately the only camera I was willing to use was my waterproof olympus. I've thought about these for the fall colors shots, but something about them seems a little off, maybe it is the snow...hmmm. smile

Setting up the decoys.

Now that fist image is just right. A duck hunter's life expressed in a single frame.

Looks like whoever is in that first image has the same camo pattern as I do. gringrin

That's a good friend of mine wearing the parka I wear when I'm field hunting. He is a bit shorter than I am and that is an XL tall I picked up in the bargin cave a few years ago. Notice how it is dragging in the water. He came out of the water and those lower pockets were just full of water. Good thing he didn't have any shells in them. Not that we had much to shoot at.

I have the same GoreTex parka with zip-out jacket liner in that duck hunting camo pattern, as well as the insulated bibs. They only made that pattern for one or two years, and as soon as I bought it they discontinued it (before I could also buy a pair of uninsulated pants to use in warmer weather).

Darn, why can't they just keep a pattern in production long enough? It works for way more than just the duck blind, too. Fits in really well up here in the boreal forest. gringrin

I hear ya. I actually died that coat a darker shade, it was too yellow for the areas I was hunting and I stood out instead of blending in. I ended up picking up a pair of 10x brand uninsulated pants in that pattern for the same reason as you mention. I really do like how well the newer max 4 works though.

PERFECT duck weather, all you need are those northern ducks to make an appearance!

I like these shots. Nothing staged, just straight up hunting shots.

So, did you tell your friend that you'd "let" him put the decoys out so you could get his picture? grin

I like the two perspectives - the overview of the set up, and what it is like waiting for the ducks to come in.

Nah, one of those times you look out and think I should take a picture of this. I had to PS it to get it to white from gray, but I think it worked out okay. Thanks for the comments everyone.

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
