Postby ncturkeytalk14 » July 3rd, 2012, 11:55 am

Anybody got any good suggestions about videoing yourself turkey hunting? I was trying to look for some hat cams etc.
Thanks

Hat cams are not that great, it's better to use a light camcorder mounted on the side of your gun that way you can zoom in etc. and the pic is much better.
It aint the killin it's the challenge of the Hunt.

Thanks

I've thought that also, from some of the u-tube video's I've seen. ;)

I bought a Stealth Epic, that I'm going to mount on my hat for starters, and then, maybe to the barrel, as I have all the attachments to do it.
I've got to start somewhere, so it's "video camera 101", for me :lol: Hopefully, after trial and error, I can graduate up :roll:

Has anyone used a GoPro for videoing the hunts. My father in law has one and I have thought about using this coming spring.

I know this post is old but just in case others check it out I'll add new info.

I have videoed several turkey hunting trips with video cameras I suggested above some good and some not so good. The MOULTRIE-Reaction-Cam sucks as far as I'm concerned, I had it on my hat did some testing and took it hunting, mostly what I had at the end of one day was all sky even in testing it was difficult to video at the right height level while mounted on a hat.

I just bought the go pro hero 4, I'll take it this weekend on a scouting trip for turkey and see how good it is, I like the 4 because you can use the screen on the back to see what your going to film and turn it off to save battery. I also bought the hero 3 and a remote, I'll put the hero 3 close to my average shooting distance to hopefully get the gobbler up close as there is no zoom on go pro's. I hope I remember to protect the camera with a rock so I don't shoot it to.

In my research before buying, the Sony-Action-Cam-HDR-AS20-Wi-Fi-1080p-HD-Video-Camera came in at almost a tie with the go pro 4 but the 4 had a better image in low light and for hunting that is something I really want.
I hope this was helpful.
