    On an elk hunt this fall my son Aidan and I found a Northern Saw-whet Owl in the middle of the road, it was injured and couldn't fly. So we caught it and brought it to the Montana Raptor Conservation Center in Bozeman, Montana. This was not a baby owl, it was full grown. One of the crazy things was how calm the little owl was through all of this. It never tried to jump out of the box or get away. It would just sit there and look at you with those great big yellow eyes almost saying, "Are you my mother?" It was such a blessing to be part of this truly amazing experience. As this video shows, hunting isn't just about filling a tag or harvesting an animal. I believe that being a true outdoorsman requires you to respect all of nature and do what is right (not what is easy). We didn't get an elk this year, but what we got, was worth way more than that. It was also fun to put together this video. I have had the privilege of seeing a number of different kind of owls over the years. From a Great Gray Owl to a Great Horned Owl, every time you see an owl it is truly special. And I have a question, how do they fly so quiet? The creator of this video is Scott Feddes.

              This great gray owl was watching people watch it one afternoon at Sax Zim Bog of northern Minnesota. When most of the viewers had left it started to loosen up for the evening hunt.

                In Grand Teton National Park, a Great Gray Owl hunts in the marsh and streams along Moose-Wilson road. Perching in low branches the owl spots and pounces on small mammals in the grasses. This beautiful predator has been there for several years, and is photographed by many. Shot from a distance with 500mm lens. Take a minute, watch one of natures rare wonders. Mike

                    In this video I show footage from two different incidents in which a Great Gray Owl detects an "enemy"...in one case a Bald Eagle, and in the other a Common Raven. Note how the owl stretches itself vertically to become "skinny," and then backs up to be next to the trunk (presumably to blend in) and then presents its narrowest profile towards the raven or eagle. Filmed in the Sax-Zim Bog of northern Minnesota. Ironically, the eagle incident was filmed on March 3, 2011, exactly one year before the raven footage. Filmed with a Canon 7D and a Canon 400mm f5.6 lens.

                      One of the world's great birding areas, the Sax-Zim Bog in northern Minnesota is home to some of the rarest and hardest to find boreal birds—Great Gray Owl, Northern Hawk Owl, Boreal Owl, Connecticut Warbler, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Gray Jay, Common Redpoll, Hoary Redpoll, Pine Grosbeak, Bohemian Waxwing, Sharp-tailed Grouse, Black-backed Woodpecker, American Three-toed Woodpecker and more. But this magnificent place is not protected. Nor is there a visitor center where birders and photographers can meet, share sightings, learn about bog natural history, warm up (on minus 20 mornings!), watch bird feeders, and use a real outhouse! Won't you help us?
