Not great, but it's a KINGFISHER!

Recommended Posts

Went back to the herb farm to pick up my blind and decided to sit alongside the river and watch. The owners had heard one this morning and saw last night. I put my blind in the car and proceeded to set my butt by the river, on my camouflaged stool. I was in full camo, including a face mask sprayed with Deepwoods Off. I sat there and waited and watched. All of a sudden, off to my right, I sensed movement. He landed on this dead tree and I had time to get off 3 quick shots. Unfortunately, I had the camera set wide open at 5.6. It had been cloudier just a minute before he appeared. I have got to learn how to change settings on the fly. frown If I would have quickly changed to F8, I would have certainly had a sharper shot. I will be going back, to improve on this one. Anyway, at least I got an OK one.

I just noticed how much better my photos look on my calibrated desktop monitor, than they do on this laptop. What a world of difference.

Great shot, it shows the nature of the kingfisher, sitting on a snag and waiting for mr. minnow to come by.

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
