Shane Hitch-fallow buck

So, for the final week of the Jan-Feb Ridgeline-sponsored huntin g photo competition and we kick off with a simply beautifully posed fallow trophy photo from Shane. Guys, this is how you do it, sit behind the animal, go slightly wide angle to accentuate the trophy relative to the hunter, no bllod or gore in sight, well lit, hunter looking into sun, magnificent backdrop and the animal has been manouevred into a good, natural position with forelegs folded under for stability etc. For  this Shane wins the Ridgeline Blaze Hydro Daypack. Well done Shane.

Next is Nicole Edwards picture of her partner(?) with a cat he shot in the wide open spaces. The clouds onthe horizon and uninhabited country spreading back behind the subject are nice, but two little hintsto the photographer. Get down a bit lower and use fill-flash, particularly when your subject is backlit and/or in shadow. Nevertheless, there's one less marauding feral menace out of the equation. Good effort!

And David Marks shot this nice, curly billy running over 35 inches.

The winner of the knife for this month is Darren Andrews, for his warmly-lit .308-ed boar and smiling shooter. See it in the gallery above by scrolling through.

There will be no Gallery for a few weeks as we are away travelling and Wild Deer Show-ing in Victoria. if you are in Bendigo 5-6th March for the Show, drop into the Sporting Shooter stand for a chat. All the best. 

We are back into 2016 with a vengeance on all those ferals in the Aussie bush, thanks to our shutterbug shooters who send in their hunting pictures to go in this great weekly/monthly competition, sponsored by our generous supporters, Ridgeline Australia. https://www.ridgelineclothing.com.au.  For your chance to win, email me at marcusodean@yaffa.com.au with your best hunting pictures.

Don't forget the excellent prizes that you go in the running for, just by having your photos feature in this Ridgeline comp. you can win packs, or knives if your picture stands out from the crowd.
