That happens to all of us I'm sure......many times over the years for me.
I don't know if there was a shot or not, but at 4 minutes and 10 seconds the gig was up.
Also, and I have killed a number of birds by standing up or rolling up to my knees, even killed one by standing and walking at him because he was in full strut facing away and I wanted to see how close I could get to him without being detected............but I'd think twice about putting that on film for the public to see. At what point does it become "stalking" to stand up and approach a bird to get a clean shot?
