For those of you who aren't you are missing out on one of the joys of deer hunting. You wouldn't believe how hard it is to pick out a deer in the woods if it ain't moving. Ive had em at 20 yards and couldn't see em, my dad thought I was crazy until we found out. Blood trailing is even worse, I've watched deer fall and couldn't follow the blood trail. At least I still got my ears, may not be able to see em but at least I can listen to them walk by.

Ha ha , i knew that comment was coming. But it is 10 times harder when everything blends in that much more. I can't even enjoy the leaves changing colors in the fall unless I put on my polarized glasses, it seems to help some , just not for the blood trailing - I get made fun of when I say hey look at that deer and the reply would be, " That's a bush". I try !

Im curious about color blindness. Is it that you see no color or is it just that certain color wavelengths appear the same to you? Either way, that sucks man. Here's to hoping that you have many "active" deer in all your seasons.

I see all colors its just variations - whats brown to me is green to others and so on - like when the leaves change I have trouble picking out the red , just like why I can't see blood good in the leaves - they said I'm colorblind in all colors - my papaw was colorblind and now I am , they say it skips a generation so my kids kids will probably be colorblind. As long as I can tell a red light from a green light , all should be okay. lol

Sorry to hear that. If it skips generations and you have it then maybe your kids wont. Either way, at least you can still drive and still get out there to kill some meat.

I am partially color blind also. Haven't had many problems, but you are correct, it does make following a blood trail difficult sometimes!

I didn't know I was until I took my flight physical and they pulled out the book with the numbers hidden in the different colored dots - only could see a couple of the numbers, lol
