Video Tip

When filming hunts from a ground blind...
Try not to video through the shoot thru netting. This will cause the video to look distorted and if your camera is on auto-focus you will capture the netting and not the action.
What I have done before is remove just enough of the netting so the lens isn't blocked.
Filming through the netting is not advisable but if you find yourself in a position where you have not other choice, take the camera off auto-focus and zoom through the netting to capture the event.

Once you have shot your animal and summarizing what just took place, there is no reason to whisper any longer. The shot from the bow or rifle to the animal has pretty much ran ever other animal away. Talk in a normal voice so the audience can hear you.

"If it don't sound good, it don't look good."
(Forgot who said it, but it has stuck with me!)
