I was thinking get Bestial wrath and ferocious insperation then switch over to MM for the LS MS and AS, what do you guys think? (ive never leveled a BM hunter before)

IMO, if you want to go BM go until TBW that way you get the same buff. Also I use to have IAotH and would swear by it. Now that I've respec'd without it at around 60 those points are better used elsewhere.
I would suggest this
*Increased DPS (2%) with Focused Fire
*Increased Armor (survivability) for pet with Thick Hide
*Pathfinding has no increase to DPS/Survivability for you or pet, only increases movement which IS good for cutting down quest time but over all those points can be better used elsewhere.
*Improved Mend Pet is great for several reasons. First more heals. Second chance to remove 1 Curse, disease, magic, or poison from your pet is great. Especially since some of those can last a long time or stack. And lastly saves on Mana which can be put into other abilities.
*The HoT from SPirit Bond is nice but not needed at all.
*With Frenzy you only need 3/5 (60%) to maintain an almost unbroken buff for the pet.
*You're right to have Ferocious Insperation up but dont forget Invegoration as well. Each Pet crit gives you 1% of your total mana back can be worth alot in the long haul. Basicly means you stay in Aspect of the Hawk more and Aspect of the Viper less.
*Longevity is a must. 20% attack haste is too good for both you and your pet.
*The Beast Within gives you +10% damage -20% mana costs +un"CC"able for 18secs.
*Kindred Spirit for the added DPS for pet and slight speed increase.
that leaves one point to place where you want. If you want a Devilsaur or other exotic, then place it into Beast Mastery. If you want to increase your pets crit chance and therefore your mana regen place it into Cobra Strikes or for +4% more DPS to pet another into Kindred Spirit. Pretty much that last point is up to you.
Also I included some Glyph help. The only one that is MUST have as BM is Glyph of Beastial Wrath which knocks another 20sec off CD.
OR you could totally ignor the advice and go SV :)

Yeah, i was thinking about getting imp mend pet but with the 10% healing buff from spirit bond and 40% from blood of the rhino on tenacity spec i wouldent think that would be really necessary? good point on frenzy too, saves me 2 points :)
Also about IAoth the 5 points put into thick hide / imp revive pet instead would definitely be beneficial if your having trouble keeping your pet up so im wondering how well pet survivability is in the game now seeing as pets have talents now (i dont have wotlk yet so when i heard about that was really surprised :D)
Thx for the reply :)
and here is the end spec from leveling i came up with, if keeping my pet up and mana was issue i would most likely switch to either imp mend or imp revhttp://www.wowhead.com/?talent#cVbhdxgRcuMest0xVcR
