Have you seen the GoPro HD ? I was pretty impressed with the videos they have on GoPro.com . They are all extreme sports videos, but I think it could work well for hunting. They can be worn on the head so you can capture everything from the hunter's perspective. They are also mountable, so you could maybe mount to the riser or stabilizer of your bow. They shoot in widescreen HD. Unsure of cost.

Good luck.

This is a good camera that I think would work pretty well. It is smaller and would work pretty well in the field, and it is also waterproof!!

If you are interested in having good quality video, don't go with the bow cams or hat cams. Video quality wouldn't be as good plus you don't know for sure where it's pointed or how well it is following the deer. A videocamera on a camera arm would be so much smoother and better quality.

I shot this video with a little Nikon Cool Pix camera. If you want a very affordable camera that takes good video, it works. It is lacking in good zoom capability but it does the job. I film almost all my hunting and fishing outings with it and am more than happy, though I am stepping up this year, I will still always carry my Nikon Cool Pix.
