Wild game innovations action cam mounting to xbow?

Has anyone mounted the action cam to their crossbow? How did you do it and how did it turn out? Any recommendations??? I would be mounting to a Parker Enforcer shooting bolts with firenocks.

Use a Bohning Top mount quiver bracket to mount it. They work great.

Thanks for the tip on the Bohning top mount. I am going to take a look at it.

I bought the bohning top mount. What action cam mount (tripod, tree screw, baseball cap or rubber thingy) do I use to mount the camera? And how would I mount the camera to the bohning mount?

I drill a hole in the mount and use a thumb screw and jam nut to secure the camera.

To say that I am mechanically disinclined is an understatement.

The bohning mount already has two holes? Do I drill a third in that one? Or one of the mounts that came with the cam? If so, which one?

Thanks for your help!

I drilled a third hole behind the two holes on the Bohning mount. Here is a picture of my setup.
