Last week 5 does were feeding when one saw another hunter. Then the "crow sound", then white tails flashing and deer running. Tonight, I heard it far off, but the deer I was watching heard it and quickly moved into the woods. I had been watching the doe for almost 45 minutes and it was feeding calmly.
Can anyone tell me what I am hearing and is it a "deer alarm"?
I think I have heard that before. Last year when I flung an arrow at a nice buck it hit a twig and bounced over the top.
He ran maybe 50 yards all the time making that sound that is hard to describe. He kept making it as he ran and as he stopped maybe 50-75 yards each time looking back trying to figure out where the shot noise came from. All the time he kept making the sound.
So it sounds like that is what you heard and I would sure guess it was an alarm or warning sound.
