Broke out the ShotKam
Permalink  
 


Last time we where out I noticed a little bad habit of mine creeping back into my shooting.  My tendency is a poor mount and ends with me shooting high.   So I broke out the ShotKam and sure enough I was back to my old habits.   

I tinkered with some editing software and figured who doesn’t like to see a few crows meet their end.

Good hard hits!

Favorites: 1st one and at 1:30--great spirals. The final one; you hit it and "landing gear down!" until the crash landing!

Very good!

That was awesome footage. Thank you for posting it. I found myself wanting to holler "NOW!" just before each shot.

Dale,

Awesome shooting on both the close and long birds! Love watching a good shooter hit ‘em in the heart! Only one request...keep them coming, my friend!!

Demi,

Thank you. If you look close my shots where off center but that is the beauty of the ShotKam, you can make corrections really quick.

I finally figured out how to do the editing on the videos, which is a pain. Now that I got it down i'll have the ShotKam rolling.

Dale,

Is the red dot a representation of where you are holding on each bird ?

Nice closeup footage.

Bob,

Yes the red dot is your point of impact. You sight the ShotKam in similar to sighting a scope.

Ted,

That kinda cold scares the hell out of me. I think you should move south haha.

Ted:

Good thing you're tougher than the Bandits.

BTW, I just discovered that in Nova Scotia, there is a "Raging Crow Distillery." Ever hear of it?

Ted, where Dick hunts ducks and geese in Saskatchewan it's 49 degrees below zero right now!

Dick hunts up there during September and October each year or until it freezes up.

Yes, I live about 3 hours drive from Saskatchewan to the west. Been very mild with little snow most of the winter, all changing now. Typically here in southern Manitoba where I reside second and third week of January is the coldest of the year. After about 30 below nothing really matters as its feels all the same with wind being the big factor. You fellas should try it one year biggrin

Ted,

I just don’t understand haha. I have family in northern South Dakota and that is as far north as I am going in the winter.

  That's some great footage Dale. I'll echo Demi's request. Keep it coming.

Randy,

I have about 10 minutes of crow death uploading to YouTube as I write.

I have thought about getting one of those. Pricey though.
