Go Pro in decoy spread

Postby laduckhunter16 » Mon Sep 23, 2013 5:30 pm

I want to put my Go Pro in my decoy spread.I have a camo water proof housing for the camera. Im not sure if i should mount the camera on the back of a decoy or sink a 2x4 in the mud and put the camera on there. Has anyone tried this if so how did you mount the camera.

Use a piece of rebar or a mojo stand stick that you aren't using. Works out nicely for me

Buy a cheap tripod from Walmart. They have adjustable legs. Camo spray paint.

I use 2. Put them on ski poles. I put mine right in front of the check so they don't get shot. One facing the blind and one face the spread. Works pretty well

Tri pod just like aunt betty said... I use 3-4 cameras at a time when I run mine and use Wi-Fi pacs on each... this system works awesome... I don't spray paint mine, but I only leave the camera above water

If anyone cares heres some footage...

You need to teach your dog to hold
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

Meh, that tripod is nice and all, but the best way is to get some hickory limbs. Just shove it into the mud like a mojo pole. Use the handlebar mount.

Oh and if you do use a tripod, get a bunch of brush and put it on the legs. Zip tie the crap out of it.

I weighed my options.. Either hunt with 'go get the bird' and film a coot shoot, or hunt myself in Montana :hammer: :lol3: .

Hey, you're the one that said your favorite feathered creature was the coot. Nevertheless, Cootfest '13 will go on as planned, whether you are here shooting them with a lense or not. :lol3:
