Hey guys,

I know we're all hunters here, but I also know many of us are avid photographers too!

That in mind, do any of you guys add a few days to your trip to get some photography in??

TIA, I know it's a bit of an odd question...

It is not an odd question sir! Many people do this.

England year round and Namibia x5.
As above, not an odd question at all. My first trip was a hunt and then a sightseeing and photography trip afterwards.
It's very common and a very enjoyable way to make the most of your time in Africa.
I also carry a digital SLR when I'm hunting, not just to record a successful end to a stalk but also to shoot the flora and fauna and landscape of where I am.
It's also something I enjoy doing during the midday break before the afternoon hunt.
Just go and sit under a tree quietly and see what appears.

I take photos at every last turn, all times of day and night while I am traveling, hunting, fishing, hiking, etc.
So, I can't say I do extra days for just photography. Every day is for photography.

It's a given. My first to Namibia we had three days in Etosha NP, my second I got caught up chasing eland and skipped Etosha. My third trip, to RSA, I set up over a week travelling all over the cape from the coast to the Karoo taking pics along the way. This doesn't include just taking random shots during the hunt.

I think majority of the people here are into photography, documentation is necessary after a successful hunting.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
