Deer steaks fill the freezer and the ducks have been flying good all season, but it was time to change things up and do a little upland bird hunting. I sent out the call and arranged a group of hunters for a pheasants and chukar hunt at Twin Ridge Upland Bird Farm
Pheasants and Chukars at Twin Ridge Upland Bird Farm
The weather man predicted ice and rain the morning of our hunt turning to all rain as the day progressed. We didn’t care. A little ice and rain couldn’t stop our fun.
A friend of mine, Mark Minnick is part owner / operator of Twin Ridge Upland Game Farm and we were lucky enough to have him as our guide for the morning hunt. The hunting party consisted of four guns and me on the camera. I choose to shoot with my Nikon instead of the Stoeger. Lefty Kreh once explained to me that you can either hunt or photograph but try to do both and you’ll miss both the shots with gun and camera.
The weather hampered the camera shooting but I still enjoyed playing with the Nikon attempting to get the camera settings correct and being in the right spot to predict the action. All the while staying within a safe zone.
