I recently got the GoPro Hero HD's. I was messing around and I figured out how to attach it to my Mathews Switchback Compound bow and my dad's Hoyt. Now when I see a deer all I do is press record and it is directed strait at what I am shooting at so it will get everything on film! I have tested it out in my yard at different yardage and places and it works really good. I have a video editing software that I can zoom in on the objective. It is an awesome camera that can be used for many other uses also. Here are some pics of it on our bows and a couple videos from shooting in a tree stand!

And these videos are unedited. This is what the look like straight off the camera.

not bad-- just need to give someone a dramamine before you show it to them! LOL.
I have a gorilla camera arm that attatches to tree and have gotten a couple deer on it and it looks good. pretty simple to use.

Ya, I have tried to use one attached to the tree but it just got in the way and I was too worried about if it was getting the shot or not. Needless to say I have scared deer away like that. This one is out of the way and I know I got the shot.
Here is a link to a guy actually shooting a deer with the gopro if you would like to see it...

Ha ha, The GoPro comes with undustrial strenght sticky pads that it clips into. So I took a peice of 1/8 inch steal plate and cut it 1 1/2in wide and 4in in lenght, then heated it with a tourch at the 1in mark and bent it to a 90 degree angle. Then drilled a hole in the 1in section big enough to put the stabilizer through then tightened the stabalizer to the bow sqishing the plate and then stuck a sticky pad to the 3in section sticking over the stabalizer. It is extreamely sturdy and never moves!

awesome . how much did you pay for the camera? also if you used a peice of aluminum instead of steal might lighten it up some! could weld ya together a little 90 degree peice if your in my area.

looks very sturdy in the video and clarity is good so I guess you could zoom in well while editing? tough to see close up otherwise.

nice setup...love the moving target.

The camera I got is the best of that kind. It takes 1080P videos and pics. It was 269 at bestbuy. GoPro Has its own site though you could go check out. Here is the link...

And the peice I made is mabey like 1/3 of a Pound. I don't even notice it on the bow including the camera. If anything it makes it more stable being right on the Stablizer like that. That is why I used 1/8 steel. Thank you for the offer though!

So far the Editing software I am useing isn't too bad. You can zoom in quite a bit before it gets blurry. But I am looking for a better video editing software that will allow it to zoom in more and stay clear. They say it is out there... Other than that it is awesome camera!
