Generally a hunter prepares for and ventures forth in pursuit of a specific
animal. His (or her) plans must take into consideration food sources,
natural cover for both the hunter and the prey as well as using the wind to the
hunter's advantage. Although the hunter has a strong desire to harvest the
animal in mind, a true outdoors man derives the most pleasure from the
As the woods awaken & come alive at daybreak, the sighting of and
the sounds accompanying the movement of the animals
and birds enables the
undetected hunter to totally immerse himself in the outdoor experience.
Any day that he or she sees wildlife is a successful day and the taking of
game is not required for the outing to be considered a success.

One way that many hunters are enhancing and extending their outdoor
experience is through the use of mini-camcorders and cameras. The time frame
involved in the shooting, preparation and consumption of game is relatively
brief - then all that remains of the experience is the memory. On the other
hand, if the day's occurrences (game seen, and the views of the woods, fields
or water) are recorded, the sights and experiences can be enjoyed again and
again in the future and be shared with family & friends.
A bonus is the fact that the high zoom functions available provide a much
larger view of the wildlife, face to face-so to speak.
Success in the field is not judged just by the game brought home but by the
satisfaction derived from the total experience.
A camcorder or camera adds very little to the hunter's load and their use can
be quite rewarding.
