Shot of the Week – Australian Fowl Hunting with “Fowl Talkers”
We couldn’t help but be impressed by the fantastic footage in a new DVD trailer from a team of Australian hunters/filmmakers who call themselves “Fowl Talkers.” The brilliantly named team consists of three like-minded individuals united in their passion of the pursuit of waterfowl. Their goal is to promote hunting and bring it to the forefront of the public eye, providing recognition to a waterfowl destination that many people don’t think of.
The trailer for the “It’s an Obsession” DVD was filmed throughout the 2013 Victorian duck season in Australia.
As the group commented on another one of their videos, “No need for Hollywood, it’s all about the hunting at the end of the day and we aim to make the viewer feel like they are in there with us.”
Location: Various locations in Australia
Game: Pacific Black Duck, Grey Teal, Chestnut Teal, Hardhead, Blue Winged Shoveler, Mountain Duck and Wood Duck
Weapon: Various models of over-under shotguns
Interesting Fact: The Fowl Talkers team used all kinds of calls and decoy spreads, sometimes totaling up to 100 fakes for one hunting spot. They are eagerly anticipating the “It’s an Obsession” DVD release in February, 2014.
