There are tons of progams you can use.. it depends on how much you want to spend.. most newer pc's now come with windows movie maker, which is a really simple program, great for someone getting started. The program I use is NERO.. i think I paid $60 for it a couple years ago.. it does a little more than windows, but from my experience.. you have to pay the big bucks to get something worth spending money on, if that makes any sense.. id try out windows movie maker to start and then go from there. it does take a lot of work tho, my friends and I have been trying to get film together to get some kind of show made, but its tough.. if your planning on putting the time in and really trying to make a show rather than just footage to watch with your buddies, id have someone up in the tree filming your hunts. Thats what we do. one day Ill be hunting and the next I'll be filming. I always take my bow tho, even if im filming.. you never know what may happen!!
