    I suffered an injury some time ago and haven't carried a rifle since late last year but have managed on a few rehab walks to carry my camera for some flatter walking and sit and watch hunts.
    Here are a few pics from this year and last winter.

    Thanks Jerome,I will be happy to walk with rifle when I`m right to go hunting again.
    Hunting up close with a camera is actually far more exciting than sniping with a rifle of course...BUT you cant eat photographs :D

    A great experience of a curious spikey coming into me one damp and slightly misty morning,he came in to 7 yards,there are some pics of him above but these are the close ones.

    Coming in.

    Namibia (1), South Africa (3) & USA (most Western States, including AK & HI). Too bad spear fishing is not called "fish hunting" or, I could add a few extra countries (couldn't resist weaving that in somehow, sorry).
    Thank you for posting those photos, I really enjoyed them.
