Mic Up A Turkey Decoy

Mic Up A Turkey Decoy

Tascam DR-40 and Joby Gorrilapod Hybrid Pictured

Why not take your audio to the next level by placing a Handheld Audio Recorder by your decoys to really pick up them gobblers! 

How to do this:
1) Choose which Handheld Audio Recorder is right for you. (Comparison chart below)
2) The Handheld Audio Recorder's have a tripod adapter where you can screw it right into a Joby Gorillapod Hybrid 

3) Place it out by your decoy 

It's as simple as that! the audio will be captured through the handheld audio recorder via an SD card. This gives you a separate audio track for you to mix in while editing your turkey hunt. You can really make the turkey's come to life to the viewer with this audio!
