GoPro tips???

I just got my GoPro mount all hooked up on my bow for this year in the hopes of filming my shot(s) at game this year. Anyone have any advice, or lessons learned that they might want to share to help me be successful in this endeavor? I have already taken it for a spin and you can see the lighted nocks very well with it! Just want to try to be successful this year....Thanks in advance.

If you want good video keep your shots inside 20 yards otherwise everything kind of blends together. Mount it as far from the bow as possible which also helps. I mount mine on my stabilizer using the roll bar mount and this produces the best video.

Some of the best video I've seen from a gopro is extra ones on small tripod along the trail where the deer will be for the shot. Makes great video, nice and close and you see the pass through. I don't do it because I can't afford one, let alone more than one.

Re: GoPro tips???

a few years ago i attached one to my stabilizer. a bear walked by at about 35 yards. i couldn't wait to get home and look at the footage. i was disappointed to see a single little black speck. those goPros have a fisheye type lens. something 35 yards away looks more like 150 yards when watched later. so i bought a small sonyHD handycam that i use now. and i bought the insane archery camera mount for it. much better!

Re: GoPro tips???

Turn off the blinking light and beeping noise honestly like the head mount better then bow mounting because it doesn't make the bow front heavy. Also if you have a case with a fish eye lense in it take the lense cover off the case will give you a better picture on the older go pro hero and hero 2. Also low light situations aren't that great I found out my brothers contour HD is better when it comes to low light you can see better. But if you take the lense out of the case it will make it better for low light but will take away from being waterproof.
