Camera Wagon Stalk [Bald Eagle (SPOT)]


One of my clients called me and wanted to know if I could get him in position for a Bald Eagle Shot from the Camera Wagon or very close to it. He has been up twice before once for Deer and once for Osprey. We did pretty good on his other hunts and he is happy, so now he wants to get a bald eagle with blue skies. He booked for the 1st weekend that we are not going to have a storm in January. He lives in El Paso, Texas so he can drive up on a Friday. Today was blue skies so I ran to the lake to practice my Camera Wagon stalking technique. It worked out just fine but next time I need to take more coffee than just a mug full. The Camera Wagon stalk takes me longer than if I was on foot.

You can tell by the photos 4 different looks. I really like Bald Eagles when they are starting to get some white feathers, I think the spotted look is interesting. I got lucky and found a willing teenager for my test.

Meet SPOT. All photos taken from the Camera Wagon

I started back to work today so it will probably be a while before I get to try at some more photos. I got to find Elk, that is what they pay me to do.
