1 | After much anticipation the day had finally arrived.
Before the Christmas period I had a marvellous experience shooting woodcock over setters’.
2 | Realtree Camo is my choice when shooting and hunting throughout Europe.
Wearing Realtree camouflage pattern I filmed every aspect of the day, from preparing for the shoot to getting into position and taking the shot.
3 | Shooting with good friends makes for an incredible days shooting.
I was invited there by a good friend Antonino Urpi of Setters di Valcalanna. The hunt took place in Sicily using English setters.
4 | Flushing out in high temperatures was incredibly difficult.
We flushed a few woodcocks but shooting wasn't easy. The wooded area was very dense, making progress difficult.
5 | Use of GPS Tracking focuses our approach.
Fortunately, using GPS tracking systems in conjunction with a locator beeper, we were able to shot some woodcocks.
6 | A tough day makes for a satisfying shoot.
Throughout the day we managed to take some magnificent birds.
