Deer have incredible senses that alert them to danger, aid in reproduction and help them locate food sources. Learning more about whitetail behavior can help you score this season.

During a spring turkey hunt I eased to the edge of a treeline near a small, secluded food plot and peered through with my binoculars for birds in the field.

Instead of hens and a longbeard, I saw two big ears perked up and an anterless deer looking in my direction. It wasn’t stamping the ground but it definitely knew I was there. Had to. Its eyes were laser-focused in my direction, its ears were up listening and the deer stood rock solid still. We were a good 50 yards apart, at least, and the trees and vines somewhat obscured me … or so I thought.

After I slinked away I wondered what that deer was thinking. Could it hear my boots on the wet, gravelly soil of the road? Did my camo shirt glow with UV rays? That’s one of the cool things about hunting, of course. We do our best and we’re still learning about the deer, turkeys, ducks and other wildlife we enjoy hunting.

How many times have you wondered, or had a young hunter ask, these questions about deer:

  • How do whitetails see color?
  • How do they smell danger?
  • How do whitetails hear distant sounds?
  • How do whitetails react to pressure?
