Deer are pretty smart animals. They adapt quickly. Subtle changes in their environment don’t go unnoticed. Their senses are unparalleled. So it seems fitting and theoretically accurate to believe that certain hunting tactics might start losing their effectiveness over time. Maybe these are backed by fact. Maybe they’re just my gut talking. Will said tactics be rendered completely useless? I highly doubt it. But the idea remains that deer certainly have the mental capacity to catch on.
I’m not writing this piece to discourage you from implementing these tactics. Far from it, in fact. Instead, I encourage us all (myself included) to be smart about using them and planning efforts in advance for maximum effectiveness. Because while each of these tactics can be effective, they can become much less so if abused or used improperly.
