Over the off season I picked up a new camera (Cannon G40), new muddy camera arm and four extra bases etc. I was really enjoying the new camera set up. I have been using it faithfully as my goal over the last few years has been to film my solo hunts/harvests of mature whitetails. In addition to the Cannon, I have a couple GoPros that i use for second angle etc or when it is raining. Last week I hung a new set after observing some activity near a bedding area. In my haste to get in and out with minimal disturbance I forgot to hang a camera base. No worries i thought I will climb down at lunch and ease over a hundred yards to my observation stand and take that camera base. So the next morning I go in for my first sit with a single go pro. As luck would have it a shooter shows up and after nearly blowing the opportunity I make a good shot and it drops twenty yards from where I shot it. I look at my go pro and realize i never hit record...I have never forgotten to do this until now. It just happened so fast I forgot..I have a bunch of footage from the season that I feel is wasted at this point... Anyone else ever do this? Tips to avoid this in the future. It has definitely tainted and otherwise pleasant experience.
