I Don’t agree with the notion that a human can “fool all of the deer all of the time”, especially mature bucks. A mature bucks nose is better than most of guys realize. I can’t imagine this guy kills good bucks without any regard for wind direction, thermals, entry, setup, etc. in relation to bedding of the target animal.

Default My 2 cents.

Deer have the some of the best senses in the animal kingdom. They smell humans all the time, especially farm deer. They hear tractors and smell ole framer Fran daily.

So how do they determine danger? I think they have to trigger two senses in order for something to register as a danger.

Let's say they smell a human...but said human is sitting still and quiet. The deer may be on edge but usually will not bolt, unless the deer has had a similar bad experience.

However, if the deer scents a human and detects motion and hears foot steps or some other un-natural noise and they're gone.

Scent control is important because it attempts to short-circuit one of the deer's three major senses. But I think hunters place too much emphasis on just that one thing and over looks motion and sound discipline.
