The quiver mount that I helped design will accept a camera. It works well and you will find that you will want the camera mounted on the back of the bow. The farther back you mount it, the less "shock" you will get at the shot. Our mount attaches to the scope rail, under the scope.

I have a Roscoby Riser cam I would love to mount to mine, but since it does not have a riser to screw into it is a little tough. Any ideas for this scope like camera?

It should fit my mount RB. You will need a "L" bracket.

I have pics but can't release them as of yet. I'll put a call in this week to see if I can get the go ahead to post pics.

There was a guy on fleabay that had a camera mount. Not sure if he is still selling it though.

Re: Looking for some ideas on cams & mounting them???

Started on my camera mount at work today, It going to look something like this one. I think I'm going to get a picatinny rail mount & use a piece of flat stock on that & attach it to the bottom of the camera mount.
The one in the pic is for a bow & the left side has a quickie quiver on it to attach to the quiver for the bow.

Here is what I came up with. Will post pics on the bow & try to put up vids if it stops raining here. I'm going to mount it on the back of the scope rail. It is made from Aluminum. 3/4" U-Channel, 9.2 oz w/camera



Here it is on the Bow

Re: Looking for some ideas on cams & mounting them???

Haven't had a chance to shot the 380 w/ cam. Well fine shot it today when I discharged my arrow. Was going to post video BUT, Good thing I didn't try to film any hunting shoots. When I went to watch the play back all u could see was the arrow going half way to the target. I had to drill & tap a new hole tilting the cam up a little. Got the target centered now. Was going to shoot it & post but it is raining again here in Pa. I think I'm living in Seattle!!!!
