First off, thank you for posting the photos. I'm impressed all the way around, that includes the rifle, the stock, the overall set up, and especially your shooting. Oh and Joel you make some absolutely killer stocks!

I dislike like the current rage insome outdoor pubs and tv shows of getting as far back from your trophy head as possible to make it seem larger than really is. I've seen 80# cub bears held up to look like a 600# boar. I know photos are all about perspective but this seems dishonest.

Troy,
Thanks for a good read. You hit it on the head, a few minutes preparing for the photos will pay off big time. I like to "shoot loose" for some images since so much stuff is used on websites etc. Lets the editor or webguy play with perspective a bit and always nice to show the habitat. Seems like many images are shot with the tiny digital cameras nowadays. You can see what you got right now. But those little cameras must be well supported or the image is soft, I like to hold my elbows tight to my side or use a rest if at all possible.

I just photographed with a bunch of guys, PH and trackers, who really knew how to prepare a spot and get the critter in nice positions. Sure makes for an easier shoot and nicer images. I always use a flash, period. No raccoon eyes and generally better lighting with the incredible flashes on cameras today.

You are fortunate to have such excellent hunting partners, boys and girls, in your family. Great to see the kids out with their dad. Thanks again for some great info.
