I think they hear some audible sound in the cam that maybe only detectable to them . Some will walk right by and others will stay back and stare right dead at the cam and then move on. Had a couple walk right up and stick their nose to it . Made for a funny pic all ears & eyeballs.Ranger99 said:i no longer have any cameras.
they were stolen.
imo, the scents that would put a deer on alert are things
they wouldn't smell normally. gasoline or oil on boots or
clothing, human food odors, tobacco, cold drinks, gun
solvent or oil, etc.
i know i can catch a whiff of those things at times at places
where they aren't normally in the air, so i know a deer can.
now whether or not it will spook one is the luck of the draw.
