    My good camera is ready with a spare battery. Anyone have any tips for animal presentation in the field? I usually carry a rag and a couple wet wipes to remove any blood around the mouth but I'm sure there are better ways.

    Take the time to move the animal out of blood spots, it really helps a lot. Make sure you remove anything that can reference how big the animal is as well. It always helps with presentation.

    Don't stand over the animal while taking photos. Sit beside or behind it. Also get the sun into the animals face and try to keep the animals face as close to center of the photo. Good luck!

    Take a lot of different angles with different lighting. You don't know until you get home which one is best.

    So true. Lots and lots of photos so when you get home you will have plenty to choose from.

    Another issue I see a lot is the tongue still haning out of a animals mouth. You can either remove it or push it back into its mouth. If the mouth stays open then lay his head on the ground keeping his mouth closed for about 20 min. The Riggs will set in and will keep the mouth closed.

    Remember to get rid of unwanted brush and weeds in front of the animal.
