Photo Tips

7 posts in this topic

Just heard of a great tip about positioning your "trophy".

In camp or your truck bed , pose the deer with the legs tucked in and then tie the antlers and ears so the head is upright. (after gutting) Overnight rigormortis will set in and keep your deer "posed."

The next morning you can pick a scenic spot for the trophy photo.

Pretty cool idea!

Better than that "stiff as a board" shot from next morning. I would also think this would work pretty quick in below freezing temps as well.

Thanks

I have heard some people even keep fake eyes in their pocket to use so the photo looks as good as possible.

Great pic but the only fault I see is the hunters hat. Turn the bill up a little bit so you can see his/her face with out shadows. Also have some kind of backlight if popssible. TRuck lights work good if its night time and you have the deer in a field or whatever. Or position the sun at your back. Sunsets can be awesome in hunting pics but they may cast a shadow on the person and the animal giving a shilloutee apperence. Use a flash even if not needed to make sure this dosent happen. Just some tips I learned in photography class in HS.

Yes, I agree about the "fill flash".

The picture isn't mine, but I liked the trick the person used and was one I haven't heard before, so I thought I'd pass it along.

Going to try it on the the big buck I'm going to kill this weekend. grin.gif

Where I hunt the only problem is , if I positioned it on the ground like that, it would by wolf food by morning, I have to hang them high .

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
