I usually set mine about four foot high ,but than I wedge a stick behind the top part of the camera. That does two things, tightens the camera and angles it down slightly.

You have it way to high. Look at all the open space above his back. I put the laser 1 to 2 feet above the ground where you expect the deer to be.

Not sure what you're doing, but you're getting too much in between the "img" boxes.

Just put this:

Inside these:



and you get this:



I dunno...your links aren't working for all the pix.


Since you're on photobucket, they already have them with the "img" tags. Just copy and paste that.

By the way, I usually put the bottom of the camera around the top of my knee.

There ya go. You got it. Also, the reason you're getting headless deer if you're not baiting is because you have to angle it at the trail you expect them on more. The trigger speeds are not fast enough on many cameras to catch a deer before it's partly out of frame if it's walking by. If it's walking towards or away from the camera though, it will get their heads!

Angle the camera 45 degrees to the bait or game trail. Place the camera at a height between your knees and your waist. Place a stick about the thickness of a broom stick handle at the top between the cam and the tree. This helps angle it down. Also you need to place your cam higher on a upward slope and lower on a downward slope. In addition face your camera either north or south not east or west. Reason being other wise your photos during the magic hour "first hour and last hour" will be effected by sun glare.
