I agree with a lot of what has been written about how hunting and wildlife photography has similarities. I use a different technique instead of all the scent/camo stuff. I let the animals know I'm there and try to get into their 'rhythm'.

The one difference between hunting and photography is that in hunting, you only need one shot. While in photography, you want to spend quality time with your subject making many images. If you sneak up on your 'prey', scent free, camo'd out, or if you stay very still, wait for them to come near because they can't smell or see you, then you move your hand or arm to click the shutter, or when the shutter goes off much louder then ever before because you've been so quiet, your subject spooks. Flight or fight. That's the only two responses from a startled animal.

Okay, so what am I missing?

Yes Chris, I would be interested in part deux.
