Dear Steven: =C2=A0Here are some thoughts. =C2=A0What kind of prey? =C2=A0W=
hat sounds prey makes? What sounds the camera technician makes? What clothe=
s you are wearing? Consider mounting the mic on a walking stick so you can =
twist it quickly with little sound.

PS Where is the hunt to take place? What ambient noise from what direction?
