I have to confess, I turned up the saturation but the lighting was all done by the sun, and man what a climb to get to where I was standing, I was walking up a hill and he was only 5' from me but he was 12' in the tree, think of that grade.

You don't have to confess to anything,that's digital photography.If that's all you did it's much less than many do.I try as hard as I can to get a shot that does not need pp but I still end up doing a little.

Brass, I'm shooting the Canon 20D and Canon 100-400L image stabilizer most often. I have access to the three top Canon bodies and all the top fixed focal length Canon supertelephoto lenses through Canon Professional Services, and have used them and love them, but day-to-day it's the 20D and 100-400, which comes in as pro gear for less than $3,000, with the 8 Mp Rebel XT for a backup body. Most of my wide-angle work is done with the Canon 17-40L.

What are you shooting?

Canon S3 IS, I hope to upgrade for advanced hobby photography and keep the S3 IS for my day to day regular dumb photos. I want wicked awesome picture quality but nothing like the 5D (not what I call pocket change especially as a college student.) tongue.gif but I wouldn't mind selling prints at some point. I may be up in Ely this weekend, look out for me. grin.gif

How will I recognize you? grin.gif

Any of the Canon DSLRs on the market produce wicked good image quality, as long as you have glass that's up to the task. Over and over again, I tell folks to pay more attention to the glass than the body.

I know a bird shooter from Ohio who started in film and switched to digital with the Rebel XT. He couples it with Canon's excellent 500mm f4 image stabilizer (big bucks), and his images are among the best avian photography I've seen. If he dropped $4,000 on a higher-end Canon body like the 1DMk2n or 5D, not to mention the $7,000 for the 1DsMk2, he wouldn't have been able to afford that top glass.

No, sorry, I don't know Terry.

Oh, and 4x2. That'll make it easy. I bet Chevy didn't sell 100 4x2 white Silverados in all of Minnesota in 2003.

Rub it in a little why don't you! tongue.gifgrin.gif a bit of weight in the back does wonders for me. I know you have seen my specific truck before, an Elyite owned it before I did. smirk.gif Ely is a small town.

And just think, he started out with an Olympus system! shocked.gifgrin.gif

Do you think he has a good place to photograph at North Chagrin Reservation?

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota snowmobile trail conditions are in good shape. The Baudette trail is great north of Knight Island. Walleye action heats up in periods of stable weather. The best catching is happening in 21-25ft, with the most productive method being a dead-stick beside an actively jigged rattle bait such as a buckshot or rippin’ rap. Glow white/pink is out producing other colors. The late ice bite can be phenomenal on Lake of the Woods, ice permitting we will have houses out through the end of the month!   Canadian fishing is recommended via snowmobile as they are light enough not to drop into the slush as easy as other track vehicles. Crappies are still filling buckets and walleye are actively feeding on reef break lines and points. Walleye season is open through April 14th.    Sunset Lodge
    • Stuff is getting hard to find so best load up on ammo I'd you find it.  Many have rebates going now so that helps some.   I haven't shot the new Feferal TSS shot yet but guys that have report excellent patterns and downrange energy.  Luke Don mentioned 45 yards is doable depending on your gun's pattern.  Two springs ago my dad dumped a big Tom at 54 yards, (misjudged the yardage and bird was working away) with the federal heavyweight in 6 shot with his 20 gauge.  I'm not advocating for shooting those distances, but it's a testmate to how far this ammo has come. 
    • I've been seeing them in corn fields and around home owner homes.
    • if you have gone through a set of carbides in 1000 miles you definitely need to change them now as you are getting a lot of wear 
    • Just a reminder this Seminar is tonight.
    • I did shoot the RX-1 but there was more hand vibration and a little louder. RX-3 did not have any of that . Also could just be in my head but felt smoother in the draw too.
    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
