They should show this or similar in every hunter's ed class as an example of "Be sure of your target". I can see the ears, but that's it.

There are lots of people who will never see a deer in the woods, my brother being one of them. I once sat him in a stand about 500 yards from mine and could clearly see him sitting there. There were 8 does and yearlings feeding in the clearing between him and I and he never saw them.

This is one of many photos I use to teach my kids, they all saw this in no time, and for 10,9,8 I thought that was pretty good. Thumbs up
Here is the very first one I showed them, mind you that htere is 2 deer in this one.

I must say that is a lot of fun ... nice pics.

A key to seeing deer in the woods is to not look for deer, but deer parts.

Actually, doesn't just apply to the woods, but the desert, the rocks, ... all over.

And for that matter - doesn't apply to just deer.

I was strange enough being the only `hunter' in my immediate neighborhood ... now I am also the only one who pulls up his binos and rifle scope to look at his computer screen.

As long as you don't shoot the monitor, it would be a shame if you couldn't tell us if you hit it, or just barely missed. Evil!

For just a moment I was tempted to use my rangefinder. I think for it to work, however, I'd have to take my monitor outside and set it across the street (in one of the neighbor's yards) at about the approximate distance the deer is in the pic. It's presently raining ... might ruin the monitor.
