haha yes that’s a good one too, I forgot about that particularly unsettling sound they can make...I recall now the first time I heard that it had me a touch disturbed for sure, couldn’t believe it was a deer when someone explained that to me.Have you ever heard a whitetail doe scream? I had to look it up for myself.
The dog and I were in the garage working on the Jeep one night after my wife and kids left for the night. I was wrenching and having a couple beers. I went outside to take a leak and heard what sounded like a high pitched weeze or exhale, almost like a woman screaming. The dog heard it too. I blew it off, fox or bird or something right? Sometime passed and nature called again so went outside. This time I heard the same sound in a total opposite direction. The dog growled. It was getting late so I put the tools awaI, shutdown the garage and went in the house. As I was shutting off lights, I could hear the screaming again. Loud enough to hear inside. It basically sounded like if exhaled violently through your mouth. I went to bed that night thankful that my wife and kids didn’t hear it because I’d never hear the end of it . I laid there trying to make sense of it. The next morning I talked to my neighbor and he said he had a bear on his deck. This was June and I had just seen a new fawn with a doe the day before. So I googled strange deer noises and bingo. I guess it’s a noise to attract a threat to the doe and keep it from the fawn.
