    Got my GoPro HD Hero2 Mounted on my bow using a Flat Surface adhesive mount and the 3-way arm mount. Can't wait to start video taping my hunts!

    i just picked one up the other day and have been contemplating how i'm going to use it. Found a micro mount that Muddy makes that can go on a bow holder or tree step. Not to mention the WiFi remote....addicting!!! Good luck this season.

    Yeah the Micro mounts are pretty cool. Nice for secondary cameras!

    Nice! I have an Epic cam on order and have been thinking about mounting it on my bow as well. I like how you did that.

    I was concerned with how the quiver would fit with the GoPro, so I put it on and it only interferes with one arrow slot.

    How would you face it towards you or your target... what's the zoom

    You can simply put the camera in backwards and it will face you. The GoPro does not include zoom, but since I will be archery hunting, I won't be taking any shots past 30yrds and you can see the deer fine at that distance.

    Here is how I set my GoPro up. Works really good and when in full draw the deer is dead center of the picture. I figured videoing when not shooting would be rather easy with location of mount if I just place the bow between my legs while in the stand. Looking forward to posting a video from it this year!

    That looks pretty cool, but I feel like that would make it hard to shoot the bow. If it doesn't though that's a great spot!

    It doesnt affect anything. What would make it hard to shoot?

    I thought it would make it too top heavy but now that I think about it, the camera doesn't weigh to much.
