Default GoPro Buck

Camera looks far but is actually only 5 yards or so from the buck. I didn't get any video from my angle because it was my first time hunting from that setup and worried they might spook.

With the standard battery, it dies in about 2 hours or a little less (wifi drains it faster which you need on to remotely operate). With the battery bacpac (sold seperately), it will run closer to 6 hours (that's with wifi on).

Great video!

I had mine out this weekend. Using the remote (wifi stays on), I can turn the camera off/on and get well over 3 hours use. Not 3 hours total recording time. Turn off or on as needed.

Very nice. That sucker had some moves!

Here's an old one that me and Saltwaterslick filmed with a go pro and a regular camera. Pretty cool when the javi runs into the feeder leg. Ignore the SKYSOFT watermark. Had trouble converting the video and had to use a free software.

Awesome video sir

I tried for an entire season to get a reverse angle shot and my GoPro was picked off every freaking time and they wouldn't go near it

Put a camo sleeve over it, hid it behind brush, placed it up the feeder on the spin plate, even buried the dang thing!

I feared that would happen to me so this summer I put a wood block of similar size to a gopro attached to a post near my feeder and painted it to look like a gopro camera. So when I get to the feeder I just remove the decoy and put the gopro in its place. Has worked great so far. I'll see if I can find a pic.

This is probably a stupid question, but do you need wifi to use the remote for the GoPro?

Not a stupid question.

The wifi is just between the camera and the remote. The camera has wifi within and the remote picks up on it.

You don't need anything additional, just the small remote and camera.
