Elk & Red Tail Hawk - Bigma

Pentax K10D with my Sigma 50-500 lens

Where I found them with a close up of one of the bulls



Where I found them with a close up of one of the second bull



Good looking for a young bull. Around 3 years old



Looks like a serous observer to me



I think his look says "I am the Boss"

So is HUGEMA in the lexicon for the 2.8 yet? :-)

And by the way lens I have seen very little mention of if you can switch lenses and don't need the instant reach how does the 170-500,, Sigma compare IQ wise????

For near half as muchi could see geting one of those (also a pound lighter).... and F/ speed seems about the same.

I have no idea about the 170-500. The only two lenses I own are my BIGMA and a Tamron 24-135. Sorry I just don't know anything about it. Thanks for looking and commenting.

Great shots as usual, Roger. Love the last one though. He looks so pleased with himself.

Hi Darren, I thought the same thing when I saw the last photo. It looks like he is saying "I am happy with me"

Thanks for looking and for commenting.

Man one of these years I'm going to have to take a vacation out there and go on one of these Camera hunts. You have a web site for these? I want to shoot some bald Eagles. Wouldn't mind going on a real hunt for one of those mulies too

Hi to YA Spiritbro77 thank you for commenting and for looking.

We have a bunch of web site. Here is a couple.

Wildlife photos: http://www.digiscopingdigest.com/

Rifle Hunts: http://www.elkhunts.cc/

If you are coming durring the off train season you don't have to worry about a camera hunt I will steal some time and help you find something to take some photos of. (Everyone here on the forum have been so nice and so helpful to me if I can help someone it is my pleasure) You need to remember Different game is available different times of the year.

Impressive shots, as usual Roger. I like that last Elk shot. You have certainly convinced ME of your abilities as a guide.

Thanks Tim for the kind comment and for looking

I am 64 years young and have spent most of my life in the woods looking for and watching wildlife. After that many years even a slow learner has to learn something about wildlife.
