i`ve been thinking alot lately about hunting coyotes at the farm. Originally i was thinking of setting up a blind100 yards away from a dead deer carcus or fish heads or just some road kill. Now i`m thinking abouthunting with my bow instead.

So my question is this. Is there a quality bow mounted camera that doesn`t break the bank? I really want to record a coyote hunt.

Check out https://www.camofire.com/they have a camera as their daily special today that looks pretty good, it will expire at midnight tonight though. I know nothing about them so I'd Google it for reviews before buying but looks like a good deal first hand. Good luck, let us know what you end up getting and how it works out!

The problem with a bow mounted camera is that you aren't going to get crap for a video. The only time that you will get any kind of decent video is when you are at full draw waiting for a shot. Before this the camera is going to be pointed all over the place. As soon as you shoot the camera is going to be pointed at the ground if you use proper follow through.



I suggest that you get a tripod set up next to you in the blind. Point it at the carcass and get quality video.

I agree with bigbulls. If your gonna be in a tree a good camera arm is a must. And the best is to have a Camera Man hunting with you! Let me know when you plan to go and I'll run the camera for you.

damnit, i knew i spelled carcass wrong.

i was kinda thinking the same thing about a cam mounted to my bow. iwould have a few good seconds of the animal and no kill shot. I think i will look for a mount to screw into a tree. Thanks for the offer grassflats, i may take you up on that as long as you are interested in hunting the yotes as well. I don`t expect someone to video my hunt unless they get a chance to hunt as well. And yes i will be doing this from a tree. I don`t think i would be able to get a coyote to come anywhere close a blind.
