I turned it on (I thought--it was already on my head) to check the connection to my GoPro app on my phone. The app showed my battery was dead, but I was 90% sure I grabbed a fully charged battery right before I went out. GoPro batteries kind of suck and don't last all that long, so I thought "eh, whatever, its almost 90 degrees, I probably won't see anything worth shooting anyway" and went on my way. What I should have done was take the camera off my head and double check it manually (not through phone app). So, I end up shooting the deer. On the way back to truck to get kill kit, I think "Man, I can't believe stupid battery was dead, that would have been AMAZING footage". I take camera off my head and attempt to turn it on manually using power button on camera and not through the app. To my absolute disgust, it turns on and battery is at 92% :? So, I was wearing a fully charged camera the entire time, and didn't try to turn it on because I assumed after initially trying to turn it on the battery was dead. I am SUPER happy with the buck, but a little soul crushed I was that close to getting it on camera and didn't.


Whatever, it was a great buck and not like you have a You Tube channel or anything to share it anyway. I couldn't resist. Great buck, live and learn. I could never film, hunting is hard enough. Anyone trying to do the filming as well hats off.

Haha, yea Lou, it's brutal. This hunt was straight off an episode of Whitetail Adrenaline. Would have been insane footage. Oh well, coulda, woulda, shoulda :violin: I'll just have to rely on my memory. I agree with Dan these days though, no one really cares what somebody else shoots.

Thanks man, I appreciate it. I like writing up the stories right after the hunt. I haven't done it yet, but one day I'd like to print out the stories and put them next to my deer if/when I ever get a proper man cave.

Absolutely, that's why we do it. Crazy to think about all the effort for a few minutes of crazy euphoria. Good luck to you this fall!
