For the first time ever, I decided to carry a mini video camera this autumn to capture some of the sights, and a few of the autumn sounds while I was out in the Wisconsin woods. Click here or on the photo to see the 2013 autumn video. This video is kind of like hunting, sometimes we hunters watch the deer, other times we’re studying the wind, enjoying other wildlife around the woods near us, or observing the migration overhead. Besides having deer and trophy bucks, this video also includes Otters, Pileated Woodpeckers, Eagles, migrating Sandhill Cranes and Turkeys along with trail cam still photos. This video starts in the colorful October autumn and ends with snow covering the ground.
I purchased a Muddy camera arm, which worked quite well when I used it. However, most of the time I shot the camera free hand, not wanting to carry the camera arm along when I was also hunting and toting all the other gear. The camera is a Canon Vixia HF R400 and is small enough to fit in the outside pocket of my harness. Nice! Also, the rotating screen means I could slip the camera out of the pocket, rotate the screen and shoot, without raising the camera up to my eye. This keeps motion to a minimum, very necessary when deer are close by. The camera also has a silent setting, so there is absolutely no noise when turning the camera on or off.
In all this WI deer outfitter video lasts 5 minutes. Enjoy!
