First Snow Goose (ShotKam footage)

Got my first snow goose yesterday. Very cold hunt. Hunted with James Creek Outfitters. Also, first time using the ShotKam.

Had to be a cold day laying out in the snow, at least you killed a few.

The rest of my money I just wasted.

White on white is hard to do. As for the film guess you gave that goose to the other guy because you film show that you where behind him. Which way where them high flyers going. As of 1 clock Bombay hook has more snows then all season and as the ranger told me. Ted these birds are all come from the north. Also I see you got what we did yesterday all Adult birds

I gotta tell ya, considering you were hunting about the worst possible hunting conditions for snow's 3 birds is quite the feat. White on white, full sun, cold, no wind = automatic zero normally. Congrats.

That first spray of shot was not my shot. It appears that way, but it was one of the other shooters. There were 5 hunters, two guides. My first shot connected, broke a wing, my other two shots missed. It took me a couple times watching to see that.

They were flying different directions. I only got a couple video shots of them in those formations, but there were several other flocks I didn't film. They were all headed different directions. Some north, some south.

Was not talking of shot spray watch video again you will see you stop your swing and are behind the bird but it is twice at the same time. That is if the camera is attached to the your gun. You may have other footage that you didn’t post. But like I said congrats on a hunt white on white I would’ve walked away from. Yes I hunted snows on snow but most my rig was Canada then a smaller white rig using the black geese to draw the white changing from Canada sounds to snows after there looking at birds in the air. Yes I can be a pain but again congrats plus the report

I have no idea what you are seeing. The birds were flying away, from top of the screen toward the bottom. I admit I should have gave more lead. You can hear the muffled shots. The bird falls after my shot. What you are seeing is recoil from the gun. Again, birds are flying from top of screen toward the bottom. The recoil raises the muzzle and naturally moves the dot behind the bird. This wouldn't be as noticeable on a crossing shot but on this type of shot it is. If the birds were flying bottom of screen to the top, the recoil would make it appear I was swinging ahead of the birds.
