"Sam Cam" Water Retrieve
« on: June 22, 2015, 05:47:29 PM »
I was out yesterday playing with the GoPro and the Fetch harness to put it on the dog.  I felt a little funny letting him jump into the water with all that $$ on his back, but that's what it's for.  I haven't messed with it as much as I like, but here is what I came up with: 

It's kind of fun to mess with, I can't wait until hunting season to get a "dog's eye" picture of some birds.  I'm still working on him shaking before delivery.

That is really neat.  It probably can't be raised any higher to get a view of what Sam sees as he runs or swims but it sure makes for interesting watching.  I wish they would have had these when my wife and I trained retrievers.  Thanks for posting it and I want to see a few of your hunting trips this fall.
