Sometimes Hunting Becomes Hunting with a Camera

OUTDOOR TIP: Always, and I mean always, take a camera you with you on any outdoor adventure to capture lasting images of the experience. The camera, whether it’s on your iPhone, Smart Phone, or is a small pocket-sized digital camera, or even is a large digital one with a foot-long lens, helps to lock in memories and validate outdoor stories. Here’s my camera, nothing fancy, but it does the job fairly well.


I took my camera with me yesterday afternoon to my buddy Steve’s farm in Saunders County, NE  to do some late season firearm deer hunting for antlerless whitetails. I did not harvest an animal, nor fire a shot, but instead, shot some great images of nature and the landscape. I had such a fulfilling feeling leaving that farm! Sometimes hunting becomes hunting with a camera! Here are the images taken yesterday to share with you. Get outside, but take your camera!
