Watch: Deer Vision and How to Stay Hidden


Watch: Deer Vision and How to Stay Hidden

In this video, Dan Schmidt talks about deer vision and how deer eyes differ from human eyes. Deer see more in 2D than 3D and are partially color blind, but they are quite adept at detecting movement and recognizing shapes and silhouettes.

The more you understand about deer vision and how it works, the better you’re gonna be when you’re out in a tree stand.

He recommends still-hunting as a great way to improve your “staying invisible” skills, saying, “It’s tough and it’s challenging, but boy is it a fun way to hunt!”

From there, it morphs into a sales pitch for some deer scents from Wildlife Research Center,┬áso you can “reel in a buck over a scrape that you’ve doctored yourself.”
