She was a fighter. She didnt make it. Im grateful Monty did. Your videos gave me joy ever since the recommended first showed you to me. I will smile when I see Monty. Every time.

Might do that, be fun to have a place to just go chill at and cook up a camp meal. Ice is coming of the lakes fast in my area. Some lakes are already clear, some not. I am getting pumped up for some canoe crappie fishing. Canoe season is coming!!! BWCA in May can't get here fast enough...

    • That's awesome! I want to get a big chunk of land so I can mess around with green trees and build a shelter that will last a while that is closer to home! That'd definitely be sweet. Could build Asgard a bushcraft dog hut hahaha! I am definitely getting ready. I hope that this early Spring stays strong and the waters are warmed up by the first week of May so the fishing is good! I am going to start bringing live leeches more often so I can catch more fish! Last year I started mid way through and caught a lot more walleye with em!

      PaladinOfHonorPaladinOfHonor4 ай мурун
    • I use single-servo AF but the trick is to have a lens that zooms in a fair amount and zoom all the way in and focus on something the same distance of the subject you will be recording. I think my lens goes up to 140 I believe. It's on my amazon page linked in the description. I usually focus on my chair or Monty.
