    HELLO:
    first of all, i am not a deer hunter. i have hunted a few times for pheasants. one of the guys at the gun club told me this story today of one of his recents hunts. he said he was hunting with a group of guys and a deer got down on his front legs and actually tried to sneak out of the area they were hunting in. do deer do this type of thing or was he pulling my leg? he told me they are very smart especially once the shooting starts.

    Honestly, years ago I actually had a deer try and do this to me--although it could of been because he was in very thick underbrush.

    I spotted a nice white tailed deer lying down in a stubble field of cut grain. When I put my scope on him he literally disappeared and I didn't see him again until he took off at the other end of the field too far away for a shot.

    They'll also let you walk by them and wait until you pass before they bolt in the other direction. Then you get to see their "flag" waiving "bye bye".

    Steve,

    Believe it! Conversely, during the rut, they can be oblivious to everything around them but a hot doe.

    Once while small game hunting in up-state NY I watched a Whitetail with a huge non-typical rack dip under the top wire of a three wire fence (the bottom two wires were not in place). He could have cleared this fence without even trying but choose to go under it. cls

    It's not only Whitetails. Mule Deer do it as well. Big bucks in the desert have to use all the tricks thy can. I've watched them through a spottng score sneak past hunters in the sagebrush on Hart Mountain in Oregon. Thanks David

    i thought this guy was pulling my leg. sounds like deer may be a pretty smart animal when they are trying to survive.

    Why would Kerry stalk that deer? To Sodomise it? I'd bet he would.Like so many like him.

    It is not uncommon for deer to do the belly crawl. I need Neil to help me with the physics of how a large deer can disappear behind a small clump of grass.

    And, you can hunt for deer for several hours and not see anything. Then, if you sit down and rest your gun on a tree a couple of feet away, one will walk up to you and see what you are doing.

    The last two years I hunted deer, I did not get around to loading any bullets so I hunted with an empty rifle. During these hunts, I saw more deer and had the most fun of all of my deer hunts.

    Well Pat, that's why you need a bayonet lug on your empty gun. Stab'em.

    This buck tried to slip around a cornhead, but didn't make it.

    I was on a Bow hunting trip in the upper peninsula of Michigan. We were driving slowly down a logging road one afternoon and came across a young buck just a few yards off the road. When we got close he slowly laid down behind a large blown down tree in an effort to hide from us. It was pretty funny because it was obvious to us that he was there but you could tell he thought he was being pretty slick. I have hunted them for 35 years here in Michigan and they never cease to amaze me.

    I was swathing 3rd cutting hay this summer and had an entire herd cut in front of me. Had i not stopped on a dime, that John Deere would have some extra deer in it.
