Default GoPro reverse angle

Tried mounting the go pro on a 3"tripod on the ground behind the feeder for a reverse angle view of the shot, but either the camera spooked them or my scent placing it. Any suggestions?

Things don't always go as planned. So when you get those angles, milk them for all they're worth! (3 camera angles)...

Just wondering if this pig was recovered ? Looks like stomach matter on the exit. Guy with us shot one last year in about that same spot. We did not find his.

ok, turned off all the lights, and camoed up the case. Next issue battery life. Just nailed a good 9point, but no reverse angle because the battery was dead. Went to Best Buy and the Gopro rep was there. Showed me the extended battery and I said that at $20 that was a good price - he said mismarked, but the BB guy honored it. Next weekend we will see how long it will go and hopefully get the reverse shot. BTW, I will post the vid of the 9 point when I get it edited. It is great fun. Lighted rage to the heart.

As you can see in the video above, I had good luck clamping it to the feeder leg/stake/barrel. I also have a little piece of mesquite that I put a hanger bolt into that lets me set it on the ground. Here are some pics of that setup.

I could have shot this deer several times as he stayed in range, ignoring the GoPro.

Some footage from the GoPro:



If you look just in front of this buck's leg at the start of this clip, you can barely see the GoPro obscured by the limb. Sure wish I would have shot this dude in front of it!

I bought some domino sized magnets from kjmagnetics.com that I stuck to the sticky mounts for the GoPro. I can then hang it on a feeder leg, barrel or whatever. It works great.

I found the GoPro footage of the big non-typical above. I should have let him have it!!!! Trickyolgus' daughter popped him a week or two later. Great buck!
