    Understanding deer behavior

  • #2
    I was thinking that very thing when you posted the tip about the snort-blows. I agree completely, and think it applies to most creatures. Even here in a fairly high-pressure hunting area, I still hear about the occasional grouse that's basically tame, hanging around someone's backyard or hunting camp. And with wild turkeys, it seems that all the conventional wisdom holds true maybe 70 percent of the time ... on a good day.

      I agree, you can't say "always" or "never" about deer. Even deer of the same age class act very differently sometimes.

        It would be interesting to see a study on the subject.

          Well that may be true in an overall sense but deer behavior in general is very predictable.

            I set up along a funnel and waited with confidence that deer would be predictable.
