At the Ranch – Whitetail: Deer Vision 101

Deer Vision 101:

To be a better hunter, you need to understand deer vision! Deer see differently compared to people. Whitetails are dichromates and see better at night, but have poorer daytime and color vision. Deer lack a ‘red’ cone and are essentially red-green colorblind. They see in the yellow, brown and blue color range and in the UV range.

Deer see extremely well at dawn and dusk, and pick out unnatural movement well. The more naturally you move while hunting, the more movement you will get away with!
