Responding to Motion

The deer see’s motion in order to detect danger.
The deer’s subconscious mind recognizes motion as either malignant or benign before it’s conscious mind can even register what made the movement. It’s an instinctive response.
Some movement sends the deer fleeing instantly while other movements are hardly noticed at all.
Over time the deer become conditioned to certain movements such as: leaves rustling in the wind and doesn’t notice them at all. Likewise, a slight movement in a treestand often doesn’t trigger a flight response in the deer. His mind has become conditioned to not expect danger from above.
A hunter moving through the woods with his un-rhythmatic movements automatically triggers a flight response in the deer.
Good Luck and Good Hunting,
