Re: Whitetail deer behavior

Not exactly along the same story line, but I thought strange just the same --- A few years ago a friend of mine was walking arcoss a pasture just at dark from a late evening deer hunt and was attacked and unfortunately killed by a bull (bovine). He was wearing a liberal amount of a popular doe-in-heat scent. A few weeks after that incident, I was in a pasture (a different place and in a truck) and squirted some of the same kind of doe-in-heat scent out the window at a gruop of cows which had gathered around the truck, and they immediately began blowing and pawing and thrashing up against the truck. I won't do that again.

Re: Whitetail deer behavior

I raise whitetail deer and observe them frequently licking another deer's wound. They routinely lick and groom one another. It is part of there social order. Particularly does who have given birth before will attend to younger deer.

Re: Whitetail deer behavior

Simillar situation in Wyoming on Antelope hunt. Hit a good buck. The whole herd took off except for one doe who stayed with this buck. He would lay down and she would nudge him when I started to get too close, and he'd get up and go on. Always stayed just out of sight or behind something. Finally got to the end of the draw and fortunatly got to finish what I started. It was really amazing to watch that.

Re: Whitetail deer behavior

I went hunting moose in Northern Ontario. I was driving my Chevy black truck and parked near the hillside. I decided to sit inside of the truck and read novel books. Then I saw a cow moose walking up to the hillside which is 250 yards away. I got out of the truck and fired at her. She stopped and stared at me then start walking a little more and I fired again. (I was shaking too much and inexperience). The cow moose stopped again and stared at me again. Actually the cow moose was staring at my black truck and thought it must be another moose trying to call her by calling "BANG!" I guess she heard strange sound that she never heard it before and continuing walking over the hillside and into the woods.
