GoPro introduces Sportsman Mount designed for hunters, anglers


The GoPro has already become a staple in the arsenal of hunters and anglers to capture great footage and memories, but now it’s getting easier, all thanks to the Sportsman Mount — a handy addition that allows users to clamp the compact video recorders to a gun, fishing rod or bow.

The mount attaches easily to most shotguns (excluding double barrels), rifles, revolvers, airsoft, paintball and pellet guns. The included Backdoor Mounts are specifically designed to stabilize the camera during recoil.

It also fits bow components and fishing rod grips with a diameter of 0.4 inches to 0.9 inches. You can mount one or two cameras front-facing and/or rear-facing to capture immersive footage from a variety of angles and perspectives.

When using a bow, position the camera front-facing to capture a downrange view or point it back toward you to record your stalk and the bow’s draw and release.

A non-reflective, matte black finish ensures low visibility while you’re doing your thing outdoors.

The suggested retail price is $69.99.
