Just wanted to show this…several I’ve seen do this before the Tiktok days!
Deer know when dogs are and aren’t a threat. I wouldn’t say that spotlighting a buck bedding a doe at night proves the point that introducing a non natural predator into natural deer territory upsets their routines. It most certainly does regardless of whatever lies dog drivers like to spread.
I’ve had plenty of deer walk within 20 yards of the running tractor when I’m on it at dusk, but once I step off of it and become a realized threat, they take off. Its pretty simple to me. Deer can recognize a threat. A pinned up dog isn’t one.
