Yes, I was going to ask about the caliber size too. I've seen plenty of live camera footage of cameras attached to guns and when the larger calibers are used, there's no seeing the hit as the barrel jumps too much from the muzzle jump. Better footage is seen from the smaller calibers; less jump.

I wonder if the camera will work after the first shot.

I would think it would mess up your zero, too. I would never do it to begin with because of the potential for damage, and it would seem to me require a new sight-in session. It might be the difference between a clean kill or a miss--or, worse, a wounded deer.

I'd also be leery of that thing falling off and banging up the rifle as well as what it might do to one's chances of being able to make a quick follow-up shot. It looks clumsy.

Yeah, your going to break your camera, unless there is some kind of spring or shock absorbtion instrument between the gun and the camera. I wouldn't do it.

I'd say it might break the camera due to the recoil. Also, the actual shot will not be captured on the video because as it recoils it will drastically move the camera lense. It's a good idea, but itll be tough to keep the deer in the screen after the shot.

I've seen a bow mounted camera jump so much after a shot that the deer moved out of the screen.

Kool idea though, good luck with it

I don't know how you'll do this but my suggestion would be some kind of brackett so that the camera is firmly attached to the left arm, (assuming a right handed shouter) so that camera is aligned and will be pointing the same direction, when you use your left arm while aiming to shoot. There will be minimal effect of recoil then.
