The easiest way would be to put together a club and get affiliated with a group like Washington state rifle and pistol association.

Picked up a phone scope. Went with nova grade. Itís heavy but I like it. Nice that it will work on any spotter. Got off my cold bore shot and reviewed video. Noticed it was shaky. Then checked my cheap tripod......broken.  Least I hit my cold bore today. 735 yards.  243. Target was far back tan square.

Any recommendations on tripods

I use a Manfrotto Befree.

It holds my 20-60x65mm Swarovski well and itís still portable enough to throw in a pack. If size, weight and price arenít a big concern Iíd get something bigger just for a little extra stability.

I have the Manfrotto 055 and love it.  May be a little too heavy for backpacking though.

Outdoorsmans if your looking for tripod recommendations.
I think the medium is on sale for 10% off.

I have a s4 gear phone adaptor that works well. Itís pretty cool and sometimes aggravating to watch your own shots on video.  :chuckle:

My only gripe with using an actual phone to take the video through a spotter is that you have to actually get up to look at the phone. I use a GoPro that connects to my phone through Bluetooth so that I can watch the video without ever moving. If I'm shooting past about 800 yards with a heavy recoiling gun I can usually fire the shot and watch the impact on my phone easier than I can spot the impacts in the scope.

Which Gopro Yorke?  I'm interested in that setup.  Thanks.

Mine is a Hero 4 Silver. I got it a few years ago and they've come out with a couple newer models since then. The good news is that you can get the Hero 4 model for some great prices now.

https://www.adorama.com/us%20%20%20%20979049.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIrITd3pv62gIVDsZkCh0ZCAfgEAQYBSABEgJmT_D_BwE

I can film in 4K but only at 15 fps, some of the newer models will actually film 4K at 30 or even 60 fps. I typically have it set on 1080p at 60 fps and the quality looks great. I'd probably look for a good deal on one of the older models unless you really want to film at a high frame rate or in 4K.

The camera has bluetooth built in?  What kind of range can you get from the camera to the phone?
