Zac Geith Joins Tactacam Prostaff
by Ted Lund
One of the nation’s top professional hunters has joined the Tactacam prostaff — and he couldn’t be happier.
Victory Outdoors’ (victoryoutdoors.net) Zac Geith has started using his Tactacam 2.0 while filming for the popular hunting and outdoors web portal. He really appreciates the seamless, integrated design that makes the Tactacam a functioning part of his compound bow.
“The camera goes into the housing, then attaches via your stabilizer slot on the bow,” says Geith. “From that point on, its not only a video camera but doubles as a stabilizer, and your point of view is basically line of sight with the bow.”
The 32-year-old Geith has been bow-hunting since he was bit by the bug at 13 and killed his first deer at 14. His college roommate, Curtis Goettsch, founded Victory Outdoors and Tactacam has been a big part of their sharing their experiences with thousands of outdoorsmen around the world.
One of his favorite attributes of the Tactacam is the ability to record and film hunts and other outdoor activities in high definition, then share them with friends and family as well as on social media. He had that chance last fall when he bagged one of the largest deer to date, a massive Iowa whitetail taping out at 187 3/8 inches.
“We were running two Tactacams at the time — one on the bow and one freestanding and here comes this giant buck
that we’ve never seen before,” says Geith. “You couldn’t have scripted it any better, and if you tried to just tell somebody the story, they’d never believe you. But we got it all thanks to Tactacam and I can share the deer of a lifetime with the rest of the world.”
Geith and his monster buck are now touring outdoors shows around the country sharing the Tactacam experience with hunters and fishermen everywhere. A big part of that experience comes in part thanks to the hunter-centric design features built into Tactacam — including its realistic field of view and ease of use.
“I see this camera overtaking it’s competitors and some of the other point-of-view cameras because it was developed by outdoorsman for outdoorsman,” says Geith. “With one of its competitors, a 10-foot shot looks like its 20 yards away. With Tactacam, what you see is what you get, up close and personal.”
He also likes the one-button touch to record feature.
“There’s no fumbling around and making sure the camera is working,” says Geith. “You hit the button, the camera vibrates and you are recording.”
Geith also appreciates the wide variety of mounts available with each unit.
“You have bow mounts, gun mounts, adhesive backed mounts, there’s no limit to what you can do with these,” says Geith. “You can film a whole show if you want to.”
“This year we’re going to be shooting with multiple Tactacam’s,” says Geith. “I can’t wait to see how we can share our hunts.”
