This hunt takes place in Richfield Springs New York in November of 2012. I had an opportunity to shoot a doe but as you will see I spooked her trying to get my bow and camera ready. It is definitely hard trying to get everything to come together when you are self-filming. As the season went on, I got a little better with the camera and my on camera narratives. I’m addicted for sure! I didn’t end up getting a deer but my buddy Jamie did.
This is a small clip of a little whitetail as I was hunting in Oneida County, NY. He was definitely on a mission. I kept messing with him every time he turned his head by grunting at him. The cool part is I taped him with two cameras. This stand is best in the early season when I have cover with all the leaves but for some reason I rarely get busted in it later in the season as well.
This is my first self-filmed archery harvest that takes place in Oneida County New York during the 2012 archery season. This video does show the impact shot. I used a Canon XA10 camcorder to film it and Final Cut Pro to edit it. The deer was used to make my delicious venison chili and my famous venison jerky. I am sorry, I can not share my recipes.

This was filmed on small camera a couple years back which got me thinking of getting in to self-filming hunts. This year I finally bought a camera and started filming. I’m now addicted and have a ton of footage. Now I just have to learn how to edit and I will get it out on citywoodchuck.com!
