Did You Already Know These Things?
As a prey species, deer communicate through vocalization, body language and scent. A deer uses its whole body — ears, eyes, nose, hair and tail. Whether used singly or in combination, they serve to warn other deer of potential danger, identify family members, convey family relationships, help find mates and express mood, status and intent.
The average hunter is familiar with foot stamps and snorts from being busted by a deer, and grunts and bleats during the rut. But view the gallery to expand your knowledge of other ways whitetails communicate and how they can be taken advantage of in your hunting tactics this season.
