    Default DIY Camera Mount

    Looking to put one together with my dad - he comes up with all sorts of random ways to make things work and I have seen some threads over at AT about it. Just wondering what you guys think of these options in terms of holding my phone (HD video capable) Incredible2?








    The last 2 are the same one, front back - I have a feeling that might be the best option but didn't know if anyone has had any first hand experience putting one of these together yet. We already have a piece and a plan for the bracket that will mount up at the stabilizer. This is just the missing piece.

    And here I thought I was gonna see a trail cam mount. So, going to mount your phone to your bow? Make sure that you turn the ring tone off. Looks a lot like the dash mount for my Explorist 500LE gps. Hope it works out, could be THE next big thing.

    Yes sir, phone will be going on the bow. There are actually quite a few threads over on AT about guys that have already done it and one guy that is actually marketing a product for the iphone 4 - he hasn't figured out how to tone down the vibration though at the shot, that is something I'll be looking to snug up as much as possible.

    It's the same in Washington State. No electronic devices are allowed on a bow. I learned first hand I asked my local game warden in front of the hunters Ed class and showed him my bow with my little Tachyon Camera connected to it. I told him that it's just for filming and there's no lasers shooting out from it. I had asked him in front of the students and other instructors...for a purpose ( Witnesses). We only have 1 game warden in my county. He gave me Verbal permission.
    Fast Forward to Opening day of Archery September. I killed my Muley on Video at 50 yards. Later that night I Edited it and posted it on Youtube and added it to two hunting forums. The nexst day, I got bombarded by some hunters on another forum for filming it. Soon after a member identifies himself as a Fish and Game Officer and asked me to call him. So i did. It was a Sgt. from the west side. I told him what happened and that I had Verbal permission from my Game Warden and that I had 30 plus Student's and three master hunter instructors as Witnesses that will come forward. Later on the Captain from the Olympia Office calls me too. I told him the same thing. It was all legal but I used a Bow cam to film it with Permission from the game Warden. Later that night, My game Warden calls me at home and I told him what happened. I also refreshed his memory about the Camera on my bow and that he had given me permission in front of many Witnesses. The next morning I was called again, I didn't get into any trouble but I did remove the video out of respect for the officers. The Bowhunter that turned me in wanted points for turning me in. You won't see me put anything with a Battery on my bow again. It turned out to be a headache.

    My mistake on the other forum was enjoying the flaming and egging them on.
