Deer have a Routine

Deer closeWhile I was on the Appalachian Trail I learned a cool little trick that I am going to share with you today. I found that every so often I would come up on some deer grazing or whatever deer do in the woods. Usually the deer would jump away before I hardly got a glimpse of them.

Here is the trick. I found that deer are creatures of habit and when I came up on them I was interrupting their routine. So when this would happen I found that if I would just sit up wind of the spot where the deer was then just wait. And wait.

After a bit usually not more than 20 minutes the deer comes back to pick up where the little deer routine was interrupted. I would stay very still and the deer would sometimes get so close that I could almost reach out and touch them. This gave me the opportunity to get some incredible pictures of deer.

It is so cool to just observe deer in the wild. I hope you go out and use this trick.
