I found the culprit to the ground shrinkage problem in this picture. I mean, there's a lot of problems shown with just this 1 pic.

Nice deer! up

My 2 questions are what is the difference between premium deer corn and regular deer corn? And do deer prefer Busch or Busch Lite?

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.

Deer on cameras are what you are used to looking at. If your used to looking at sub 100 lb deer a buck that weighs 220 lbs is going to appear to have smaller antlers and vice versa.
