Default Camera setups for still hunting

Do any of you try to video while still hunting?
Think it's possible? Camo the tripod and camera.
Maybe use a lipstick remote lens and keep the camera in a backpack?
Just wondering...

I've tried a couple of times while stalking javelina with the camera on a tripod. Gotten close a few times but never quite pulled it off.

I've attempted it a time or two. I attempted it on a Nilgai hunt a few years ago, but my camera quit working so I gave it up. I did it on a turkey hunt and successfully got off a shot, but missed the bird. I'll see if I can find a clip somewhere. I almost got a shot at a doe last weekend, but got busted before I could shoot.

I got some great footage at the end of last season when I had a buck walk within mere feet of me before seeing me. It was exciting action. I have that clip somewhere, as well, but won't be able to post it until next week.

It will be extremely challenging to pull off, but I'm going to keep trying!

I keep eyeing this: http://www.samsung.com/Products/Camc...C_X210LXAA.asp even though the reviews say the video is substandard at best..

Yeah, I wanted one of those for a trip to Costa Rica earlier this year, but no fundage!
Something from these guys would be nice too.
