Photography can be a powerful thing when done right. The right picture can elicit memories from a hunt, and when you reflect on a picture, it can bring you right back to that moment. A singular image can capture and tell a whole story. Recently, I reached out to a couple professional photographers in Steven Drake and Sam Soholt and wanted to get both of their perspectives on all things related to hunting photography. If you wish to improve your photography game at all, their answers to these questions will undoubtedly help you. Enjoy our Q&A with Sam and Steven below!
Shed hunting is quite the popular activity to do in the spring time for most deer hunting enthusiasts. For a number of reasons, shed antlers captivate people and it's something we look forward to after the conclusion of each and every deer season. Recently, I was thinking about how popular shed hunting is, and wanted to touch on a few reasons why we love to go out in search of antlers as much as we do.
Recently, I've been thinking a lot about the declining number of hunters in America. The numbers are slightly alarming, and as hunters, if we want hunting to prosper, we need to be recruiting more people to start hunting. One organization that is making a big difference when it comes to recruiting new people to hunting is the Quality Deer Management Association.
Do you remember the day you got hooked on deer hunting? I mean that moment you realized hunting could change your life? I still vividly remember that day, and it was the first time I took a deer's life. I remember when time almost seemed to stand still and it was as if everything in that second changed, and it put me on the path that I'm on today. Ever since that October day in 2010, I became a bowhunter. A whitetail fanatic. And that will never change. Today, I wanted to run you through the evening that I became hooked and how it changed my life forever.
