  • Recently I was discusing the whitetail deer with some of my friends and one of them said that a deer could distinguish seven dif

    Recently I was discusing the whitetail deer with some of my friends and one of them said that a deer could distinguish seven diffrent scents in there nose at one time. Is this statement true or false? If true how is this accomplished?

    I had the same thought charlie elk. I you know a good chef their noses are as educated as their tastebuds. As you say all of us can simultaneously identify many different smells from the kitchen, and those who cultivate their sense of smell can process even more. Deer need to have a highly refined sense of smell to survive, that life and death stuff is the fundamental component of animal adaptation. The strong survive based not just on muscle but upon the refinement of senses that give them an edge over those that would prey upon them.
