I noticed that deer would graze and cross my path where I had walked in to the tree stand. None ever showed any awareness, nervousness, apprehension, or spooked (just kept on grazing), at where I had walked less than an hour earlier.
Good point. I've had deer come in from down wind, had em come in on the trail I used, I've had em stand and look at me as I pumped shots into their compadres, I've had em do all sorts of dumb stuff. But what I've never seen is an old mature buck or doe do these things. It's always funny when a guy puts out a camera and see's all these big deer and then wonders where they go during season. Big deer don't get big by being stupid.
