Theres nothing worse than trying to get the mount on in a rush as a trophy buck stands broadside while you stuff around trying to figure out how to make your Skopecam work! Try shooting some bottles or cans in the back paddock to see if Skopecam works well with your scope and caliber of rifle, then you will know what to do when the moment of hunting destiny arrives.
Steady as she goes
You might think you will be able to shoot from the hip or do a ‘quick scope’ whilst doing a one-arm-handstand, but the truth of the matter is that the best way to use Skopecam is to lie prone with a bi-pod or solid rest to take a calculated shot at your target. Trick-shots not allowed sorry. (Pro tip: works best with bipod or in prone position.
You don’t need to be a movie director, but considering what will make a good movie for your friends and family will make a big difference in the quality of your movie once you get back home. Try capturing some footage of the outdoors, your mates looking tough marching through the bush, stalking the prey, and then capturing the final shot (two cameras is also a great option for a second angle!). Throw in some stills and a few selfies with your quarry and you could be taking home an oscar… or at least you might get a mention on the Skopecam website or facebook page! (Pro tip: consider what makes a good video or image before pushing the go button).
