A video for you diver dudes.....

Postby ol' yeller » Thu Feb 10, 2005 10:10 pm

A buddy and I went out this morning to get some pictures and video of some mallards, but they never showed up. We had to make due with the scaup that bombed our decoys over and over and OVER again.

This is a large file (a little over 3.5 meg), so it may take some time to download if you're on dial up, but it's worth it if I do say so myself. :thumbsup: It's low resolution, but I think it gets the point across.

Oh yeah, be sure to crank up the speakers. :hammering:

Could have used you for some of my teal shoots this last year. We were swatting them like mosquitos.

stalns, I have a self control problem when it comes to shooting video instead of my shotgun during the season. I can't put the gun down long enough to take pictures. That's why I have to go out now to get the video. Those bad boys weren't more than 25 feet away and we could have rocked their world had this happened during the season. :thumbsup:

DH7, at least I'm putting it to good use. :mrgreen:

ol' yeller,
I know what you mean, I've had a video camera for 10 years but only one hunting video.

Looks like everyone enjoyed your work. :thumbsup:
