Photo Tips

Recommended Posts

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 .

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
