Deer looking up???

Postby SoftShoe » October 11th, 2018, 1:59 pm

I just had an interesting experience on RFF. I had a WT come up to my treestand, he was small (150ish) so I was ignoring him. After a couple min I turn & look down at him only to see him looking back up at me! When I equiped my camera to take a pic of him he spooked & ran off.
My treestand wasnt up very high but still, I couldnt believe he was looking up at me! I hunt WT more than any other animal on classic & that was the very 1st time I have seen one look up. That is even rare for real deer to do! Anyone else notice deer looking up?

Once in a while that happens! Too bad they aren't as dumb as red deer. Last week I was crawling around for BC's comp and a could red hinds came up over a bank and caught me on the ground- I backed up till I could go up the tree. The 2 girls were looking up at me so I just say there- then, they dropped their heads and walked through on their way.
I've been busted by WT, coyote, fox and turkey up in a TS lots of times- but considering there's been thousands of times I've been in a tree, pretty good odds.

Yes SS , not only did i have Deer looking up , but i remember : Turkeys , Yotes , Bears , Moose , Muleys , Foxes . I think they have all the coding to do so at some point , if all is there for them to do so .

Sometimes , they do more than just look !

I have had that experience but with turkeys, they look at me, show me the middle feather and then their butt ala Brave heart when they ran like the wind.

Yeah, that's one thing nobody is ready for.......... ;)
Animals will look up and that is the sign that you've been acknowledged up in the tree stand,
just shoot fast cuz you just got about a split second before the gig is up, and that's when you hope you have the weapon in your hand........ :lol:
