Stop & Go Pheasant Hunt

After the early morning shoot at the Bosque we decided to drive the farm loop road a couple of times. Barbara was driving and we planned on doing stop & go shots. We saw something move ahead on the bank so Barbara slowed up REAL slow and when I said now she stopped since I already had the door open she was stopped for only a instant. I stepped down into the bank across the road from the Pheasant. The Pheasant was watching the car as Barbara continued on down the road until she was out of site.

I am glad she left

I saw her leave what do I hear now
#2


I hear something but don't see anything
#3


Sounds like a Canon shutter to me
#4


I didn't get this old and gooood looking by being careless. "Bye Bye"

Nice series, Roger! I'm gonna have to try that sometime with deer but I think they move a little bit faster & are a little more skiddish than that fine looking pheasant.

Thanks for sharing,
Ron

I think it works out better with a camera Roger, that way everyone wins, including the Pheasant.
