    Mine is in the mail.
    I'll test it before it goes to Africa and hopefully show you what it looks like from a bow.

    Try searching for the Roscoby "Riser Cam" it mounts where the stabilizer screws into your riser.

    Bowhunger, here is the link to the video I just shot after getting the new camera GOPRO HERO.
    (GoPro Official Store: Wearable Digital Cameras for Sports)

    Doing some bow practice while wearing it as a helmet cam. I need to clean it up and get a little more proficient at uploading it, etc
    I'll get it on the bow shortly.

    Hey Bowhunger,

    I am not sure if this will work but I am thinking of buying one to put on my little tracking dog to get some footage when he finds wounded animals. He likes to fight with them so I am intrested to see what happens. I see BRICKBURN are one i front of me but this is my plan.... It is the GOPRO camera I have in mind as well.

    What do you think about putting the camera on the dog while he is tracking?

    Best regards,

    Jacques

    Brickburn, pretty nice group you shot there. Can't wait to see more options from the other fellas looking into this. Interesting.

    Sorry for the delay in replying.
    This is taken from a simple rig they have for putting it on your head. It is also inside the waterproof case so the sound is a little muffled.

    I wanted one that I could watch the animals not just have it one the bow. But, I'll see if I can get it onto the bow just to see what the video would look like.

    I have an old pack for the dogs that I am going to try and put it on. Not sure how to do it yet but I can't wait to see what Pheasant flush looks like from the dogs view point. I should be able to accomplish this in the next few weeks at a field trial.

    No issue: I paid 299 USD shipped.

    Thanks on the group. Been practicing for a while with the new limbs and finally settling in. A little loose from 50 yards, but got some more time to get that down.
    The neighbours all know to look both ways before they head out of the house. :)
