    National Park Hunt 2013

    Hi All

    I purchased myself a Gopro for fishing and diving in Northland this year. I ended up taking it for a hunt in June 2013 at National Park for the first time and this was the result. I am not Peter Jackson but I hope I can get better at this. Anyway I was in the bush doing the trying to improve on my bush stalking and I heard a bit of noise off to my right and the noise kept coming my way and a nice hind popped out in front of me.

    The Gopro was on my head and the angle was not good. I now have a gun mount and the next one should get better.

    I believe its better than nothing. ?

    Here is the link.

    Cheers Johno

    Cool, well done.

    I've tried this lots of times and mostly got rubbish footage or none at all when I turn it off by mistake (thinking I'm turning it on) or it happens too quickly. The rifle mount is the berries as it makes it look even more ''video game'' looking.

    Well done.

    I found years ago duct taping a bloody huge vcr tape camera to my helmet it takes a few goes to get the angle right but when you do you can get some good footage.
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    Sweet vid mate. Good shot of the deer popping around the tree, and the shot. Wicked.

    Excellent. Well done Johno.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
