Has anyone done this yet? I am trying to figure out a way. I have tried the scope mount that attached to the scope, not enough room on the scope. Bow stabilizer attachment, no drilled and tapped holes coming out of the front of the bow. Picatinny rail attachment, too many things on the bow in the way.
I might just drill and tap for something.

I couldn't find any good spots to attach that. I am thinking about drilling and tapping the front handle, or the "U" that the handle is attached to. If / when I do I will post pics.

So in hind sight, DO NOT DO WHAT I DID. You can't use the foot stirrup. I can pull the string back by tipping my toe back and not putting the camera on the ground. I will hunt with it during the opener next Saturday, but there will be some reengineering.

I think @Nutterbuster suggested this in the Hickory Creek Koolaid thread during a discussion about quivers interfering with boot insertion in stirrup. You can girth hitch a paracord loop (or better yet, a climbing sling) around the stirrup - then just stick your boot in the loop to cock the bow. Once cocked, undo the girth hitch and remove the cord so the cord loop doesn’t interfere at the moment of truth.
It’ll be a workable solution until you can re-engineer the camera mount.

I don’t have a mini but do have a Tactacam. Why not use the under scope rail mount.

I can just lift my leg up a little and load the crossbow. The draw weight is not that bad.
I tried the under scope mount it is either in the way if the quiver or the strings.

Sorry thought I added the other piece of the puzzle. Didn’t know if top rail would clear the quiver.
