Anyone used a gopro for filming your hunt? Usually my wife uses a camcorder and is my camerawoman, but she is unable to join me on my BC moose hunt this year. I have some Cabela's points burning a hole in my pocket...but if it isn't going to work I don't want to waste my money. Any thoughts?
I have use the predator camera, with good results and they are a bowsite sponsor.
They're great cameras for action shots, but the footage of animals is only good when you're real close. I'd look at a lot of footage first before you decide.

Bring your Camcorder and give it to your guide. Good luck! C

Go pros are awesome and hard to beat if you aren't dragging a big camera and tripod into the filed. Here's a video from my GoPro.

Ultimate Predator camera is similar in size to the Go Pro but is much more useful as a hunting recorder as it has several choices for magnification / field of view. It is also quite a bit cheaper and comes with a bunch of extra mounting devices that are extra cost items for Go Pro. I used my UP camera last deer season and again for spring bear and have been very happy with the results.
