North Dakota Wildlife Model Shoot

Click to enlargeWow is all I can say about the photo shoot in North Dakota this year. On April 26, 27, and 28th, 2008 I once again led a trip for Minnesota Wildlife Connection to the badlands of Medora, North Dakota. In three and a half days I shot more than 10,000 images of bobcat, badger, coyote, wolves, mountain lion, wild horses, and sharp-tailed grouse performing on a lek. We had mixed weather with snow, wind, and short sleeved temperatures.

I brought along 2 photo blinds and set up at a nearby sharp-tailed grouse lek. The grouse were so anxious to dance that I had birds in my lap just minutes after the blinds went up.

The wild horses were very good this spring with lots of family groups, bachelor bands and action. I plan to lead this trip again next spring. If this is the photo shoot for you then I advise you sign up early as it is limited to 9 photographers.
