The days are getting shorter, the air a little crisper. Deer season is almost here, and by the way, they can see you!

As sportsmen prepare to chase whitetails, they should keep this information from QDMA in mind.

When something puts it head down it can’t see you. Right?

Well, our friends at QDMA have some pretty nifty science that tells us that is not the case. Make no mistake, you’ve put on your camo and scent blocker and made all the right hunting prep moves, but the deer that’s in your line of sight with it’s head in the acorns can still see you. You are not invisible.

How is that?

For more on the science that allows deer to keep an eye on us longer than we can them check out QDMA’s findings.
