I followed thehotel's advice from FredMiranda and made a shoulder strap from the strap that came with my 200-400mm lens. I attached it directly to the lens lifting rings. It took me a few tries with adjustments, but when finished, I am really happy with the support and feel of the strap. When I am not shooting, the BushHawk and camera/lens are held close to my chest and waist. From there, I can quickly lift the whole thing into shooting position and start firing.

I sometimes get an out-of-focus first shot because the AF does not react fast enough to the BushHawk firing button (the shutter release button), but the second shot and beyond are spot on.

I was in Gatorland (Orlando) using it yesterday. Other than having a number of people admire my setup, I was more than pleased with the results. I can only remember one shot that I missed, and that was because I did not keep my eye on the potential targets....egrets riding on the backs of gators.

I plan to keep the BushHawk and 200-400mm on one of my D800e bodies all the time. Here in north central Florida, you never stop getting opportunities to use the combo.
