No, the bird was shot else where. I got the idea for the pic from an article posted here earlier this year. The author had a photo of his bird propped up on a log in the article. Thought at the time that would be a good pic if I could find a log with character somewhere around my hunting grounds. Found this one on the way out one morning and decided to take couple of pics when I was successful. Turned out pretty good IMHO.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
