A buddy of mine and I went calling coyotes last night. The first setup resulted in us being out 4 rounds of ammo and one very scared but very much alive coyote still on the loose. This part of the hunt I was able to video. I got home and spent a bunch of time trying to figure out what went wrong. That is what I like about doing video through the hunter's own scope. You can see everything the hunter should be seeing through the scope in real time, slow motion, and then even break down the events in 1/30 second increments which I did for before and after shot images.

However, there is less detail when you are watching somebody else's shots as you don't know exactly where s/he is aiming or what happened to the sight picture when the trigger was pulled. Either way, you can learn from videoing your own hunts, but there is much more insight as to what went on when the perspective is from the scope of the rifle doing the shooting.

My buddy made the first 2 shots and I made the 2nd two shots. Distances were estimated afterwards using landmarks in the field and measurements through Google Earth.



My buddy also got a coyote during our second setup. It happened very quickly and there is no video from it. bang

That's a lucky dog.

Been there and done that.. I too like it when I can review the action and learn from the past in slow motion.

Thanks for the video

Excellent thread idea and video DNS !!!

Here is my contribution - it is a shot that perplexes me, the gun was dead on at 50 yards this should have been a DRT and the video review shows all was well.

The hog just forgot to die and made a mighty athletic exit !

Well, that was definitely a hit. I am guessing it went behind the ear and through the top of the neck, hitting nothing but muscle.

Looks like a hit to me. He did a lot of flopping. Sometimes all you can do is scratch your head.

OK, I'll play... I have heard some people question why anyone would care about recording their hunts. I do it because it can often show me what went right...or what went wrong...or sometimes you never know. Anyway, I think a lot can be learned from them. If not, they can simply be enjoyed. up

I couldnt see if it was a hit or not, BUT, I don't see how it could not be. The bullet clearly had to hit behind it judging from the dust.
