    Sharpen a stick (old broom handle) and stick a mount to the top. Problem solved. Or use a drill and a small drill bit and use a screw through the plastic stick on mount. Problem solved!!

    Does one of the GoPro mounts have a threaded screw hole on the bottom of it? I made these for my trail cameras and they work great.

    Made that for about $6 and with the stake I used you can see all the holes it is super easy to set it at any height you want and at any angle.

    Is that just one of those green fence posts?

    How easy does it go into the ground?

    I would like to make one and use it when I turkey hunt alone with the GoPro.

    Sure is you can get them for just $2 or so in two different lengths. They go in the ground super easy and you can put the mount at any height you want with all the different holes available.
