    FYI - if you're referring to the answer that I made in response to the question posted by Marcus yesterday, I was simply being facetious. I didn't say that I believe deer can see the color purple (although, who knows, maybe they can?)... is anyone on here part-WhitetailDeer / part-Human who can confirm and/or deny that fact?

    I was simply making a point in regards to whether or not deer have the ability to see a UV color spectrum and/or frequency. My point being that until Whitetail Deer develop the ability to learn, read, write and comprehend the English language (oh, and log on to the Internet and this website and join in these discussions) - who is anyone to say whether or not a deer can or cannot see something? I think the products that boast about the fact that we need to eliminate UV from our clothing so deer can't see us are simply capitalizing on yet another marketing scheme... i.e., "BUY THIS PRODUCT OR YOU WILL NOT KILL ANOTHER DEER IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE!"

    The example I made in the previous post was that if a scientist on a popular outdoor network advised that if it had been discovered that the whitetail deer can no longer "see" the color purple and anyone wearing this clothing would be invisible... how many deer hunters do you suppose would run out and buy some bright purple hunting clothes? =) I'd be willing to bet 9 out of 10.

        It's crazy, I tell you. As sportsmen, a lot of us actually believe some of the crap they try to pull on us... I guess I can't blame them for trying to make a few bucks. Haha...

        Good luck this season, man!

          It's not purple, it's ultra-violet or UV. The human eye cannot see UV rays. That is what they are talking about. It has nothing to do with the color purple.
          UV rays have a shorter wavelength than visible light, but longer than x ray radiation. Do a search, you can find more on it. There are some people who would have you believe that deer can see UV light. I for one don't believe that they can.
