Interesting, my camera's all seem to project the deer smaller than they actually are. I got a 155 5/8 this year and I posted him on here asking for "age and score" and I got back a bunch of guesses in the 130's, so I was on the fence about shooting him. To every guessers credit, when the deer appeared on cam it looked really thin, but in reality had a ton of mass and spread. I think different cams project deer differently. The only thing I can tell you for sure is that some deer look bigger depending on the pose of the deer. I noticed that I have shots of deer that are almost head on looking at the game cam with their head up. This makes their horns look massive, then I will get another shot of the deer 5 minutes later that makes it look like a basket rack??? I think you can compare it too hunters when they take a picture and are sitting behind their deer about three feet extending their arms fully out to capture a picture...it makes the horns look huge, but when you see it in real life you may be disappointed. I think trail cams are one of the best tools we have to hunt deer, you just have to keep in mind that they give you a ballpark figure at best when it comes to scoring antlers.
Why is it that every time I push #1 for english, I cannot understand the person on the other end???
