Still shots

Here are a few stills that I edited down off of my GoPro HD. This was my first year using the cam, but overall I was really impressed.

How did you have the camera mounted? Nice pix
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

It's a RAM mount that mounts to the fore end and then to the camera using the tri pod stud.

That first pic is awesome. And that kill shot one is pretty cool too. :thumbsup:

I've been thinking about getting one of those go pro's but I'm not entirely sure what I would do with it other than using it for duck hunting.

Yeah the first one is teal. In my defense the gun is just going off in the pic. They were using this canal that's about 20' wide. And boy they were whipping us that close. Early season is always fun though.

Greenwing teal don't die that easily - and in fact are the hardest birds to kill (and find wounded ones). I bet some of those started kicking around in your game vest - or flew away when you opened your game vest at home.

We had two three flooded corn fields set up, but they wanted to be in this little canal that had some coontail moss and filamentous algae in it. They would enter the canal on either side of us and pass by 3' off the deck within 10 yards. When I show people who have never duck hunted the video, they are amazed at how fast it happens.

Fwiw, I haven't found greenwings particularly easy to kill. Might take less shot to do the trick, due to their small size, but it's also harder to put that shot in them for the same reason. To me, they've seemed as tenacious of life as most other ducks, just not as capable of making good their escape in some cover, again due to those short little legs. When we drop one in dense marsh grass, I expect them to fight it a little way and then dig in and may not be as quick to send the dog as I would be for bigger, longer legged ducks. But they've fooled me there, too. The photo below isn't a good one, but the little hen earned her spot in my log by leading a serious big duck chase that began with boat ride to where she initially went in.

So does everyone else after the first shot, if they've not already been flared by loudly calling the shot. But it ain't like other puddlers don't flare, too, and a flaring greenwing is an appreciably tougher target than a flaring big duck.
