Default Score!

Day two of Turkey Fest started like day one except that it was accompanied by more rain, lightning, and 50 mile per hour winds. For yet another morning, the same tom we chased yesterday humbled Bubba and I again.

What we needed was a change of scenery. So this afternoon, we moved to a new property and within thirty minutes, we'd called in three mature toms and two jakes. With a single shot, Bubba downed a nice 18-pound bird.

Tomorrow, it's my turn...

Great stuff as usual Russell! I love the one of Bubba holding the shed and the one of him in the background of the dead bird!

Hi Shane. I used a Canon 15mm fisheye for that image.

I do a bunch of lens changing on the go. I don't worry too much about dust but the best way to mitigate any dust getting on the sensor is learn how to change lenses quickly.

Thanks,

RG
