Many of you more experienced hunters will (should) know the answers to these questions, but maybe some of the younger/less experienced may learn a thing or two. If you know these answers, hold off answering them for a while, so that those you are trying to learn, can. If you think of any other similar scenarios, please feel free to add them.
1. It's summer or early fall. You see a large doe, with two fawns-of-the-year. With them, is another adult doe, although smaller than the large one. She is accompanied by a single fawn-of-the-year.What are you seeing?
2. It's now early November. You suddenly see only a pair of fawns without the adult doe that's been with them all summer. She is NOT dead.What is happening?
3. It's mid-spring. You are seeing more solo, young, apparently male deer wandering around by themselves.What are you seeing?
4. It's mid/late spring. You see the same single doe, in approximately the same area at least once a day, sometimes more.What are you seeing?
5. It's mid-November. You see a single adult doe. She is on the move, but not in a big hurry. She frequently flicks her tail, and periodically looks back where she came from.What's happening?
6. It's mid-November. You are hunting farmland that has strips of harvested fields, interspersed with wooded areas and other cover. A young (first rack) buck comes out into the field, and though looking into the cover, and moving back and forth along the edge of the cover, WON'T go into the cover. He eventually wanders off in the other direction.What is happening?
7. It's mid-November. You are hunting the same type of farm as above. A large mature buck comes into the field, into the wind, and runs/trots along the edge of the strips of heavy cover, but does not go into the covers, until he hits the last one, which he does go right into without hesitation.What's he doing?
