IT'S NOT TOO EARLY TO START PLANNING FOR THE FALL TURKEY SEASON.
Did you know? There's a special name for this lineup of turkeys, and that the number of hunters who have successfully harvested all of them is a pretty elite class. Read more about "SLAMS" here.  Get some tips from a gobbler expert below!
The view from Tony Peterson's blind. He's got some good advice when it comes to turkey decoys - read it here
  1. Keep clutter out of the background. Look at the scene, if the person took a step to the side or you changed your angle, would you see the lake in the background instead of the boat motor? Move your gear and always remove sunglasses for a photo.
  2. Take the photo in both vertical and horizontal layout, then look at the difference in what you capture.
  3. Get close up to your subject. Walk in or zoom in. 
  4. A good way to eliminate shadows in pictures is to use your flash.
  5. When you are taking a hunting photo, always take the photo before field dressing the animal! If you forgot, and need to take the photo afterwards - then make sure to clean up any visible blood (hint - a little bit of cornmeal rubbed around will clean up blood on the fur!). Also, make sure the deer's tongue isn't hanging out.
  6. Include the hunting weapon (bow, firearm) in the photo in a safe manner.
  7. There's a photographer's rule of thumb about 3 equal parts, both horizontally and vertically that is called the "rule of thirds". Think about a tic-tac-toe game and use those imaginary lines to place your subject. Setting it up so they are the intersection of those lines and not just in the center makes it more interesting.
  8. Experiment with unique details, like the feathers on the bird you harvested or the colorful scales on the fish you caught. Try zooming in to capture this.
