Bowhunting with gopro

Postby KY-RiverRat » Wed Sep 18, 2013 1:38 pm

I know everyone says not to use a gopro as your primary film source when filming hunts but a gopro is what i have so a gopro is what ill be using. Just wondering if anyone else has experience filming a hunt from a head mount and if so what settings are best?? Any help would be appreciated i would hate to stick a booner and it be blurry

I have a GoPro2 that I mounted to my stabilizer. The lack of zoom sucks. Unless the deer is in your lap you cant clearly see anything

I've got the 3 black edition for some other things, but I'm going to try it out with deer this year just to see how it does

Anyone seen the commercial with Chris Brackett shooting a bear? He had the (What I assume to be a) GoPro on the ground facing the bait so the Bear was very clear and it shows a different angle of him shooting the bear and you see the arrow go through. I've thought about trying this for Coyote and turkey (mounting the camera on the decoy) so you get an up close view as you shoot. Basically mounting the camera anywhere you "expect" the animal to be is a chance but it would make for killer videos if it works out. For deer I would mount the camera on a trail I would expect them to show up on and in a shooting lane. Or you could put it in front of some scent to get them to stop for a shot. I dont know if your camera has a remote but that would make for awesome footage
