Capturing a hunt can be a difficult task, but the photos we bring back are often the real trophies of our time spent outdoors and always worth the extra effort. Connor breaks down equipment, techniques and even shares some simple tricks for your iPhone that will help you bring home better images. He also leaves the guys with some excellent advice for their August sheep hunt.
