I am. I get blue and purple mixed up and red blends in with brown, therefore I have trouble tracking blood. I am still able to track blood, but I have to be standing right over it to see it. I cannot spot blood an any distance like some of my hunting buddies. That is the main reason I am very selective with my bow shots. I very seldom shoot past 25 yards. I also have trouble seeing the orange flag tape when it is hanging on tree limbs with leaves. It just doesn't stand out to me like it does to others.

I am "color deficient". I signed up for the Navy and qualified for the 6 year Nuclear Power Program when I was 17, but when they tested my eyesight, they found out I was color deficient and Honorably Discharged me. I have trouble distinguishing certain colors. The most noticeable problem I have is blood trailing. I cannot follow a blood trail and as I have gotten older and my eyesight has gotten a little worse, it is even harder. If I have to follow a blood trail, I have to get help. What is so hard for me to spot, others can see without any trouble.

My friends will tell you I am as color blind as anyone can be. The people who hunt with me will also tell you that I will see a deer before anyone else about 99 percent of the time. If a deer does anything I will pick it out. When I was little, I would tell my dad to stay still because a deer was looking at us (he is not color blind) and he would ask where do you see a deer? I would tell him where the deer was, and he would say I don't see a deer. I would say I saw its ear or tail twitch or some movement. He wouldn't believe me and I would tell him to move toward it and when the deer took off, he would laugh. It still happens all the time. I see all colors, or I can count the number of different colors there are, but I generally can't tell you what colors are what correctly. Those color blind test where something is hidden, a letter or a number, I can draw a line and see what is hidden, but without drawing I will never see the number or letter. I can't follow blood for crap. I am very blessed to have several friends who help me during bow season and it has been very much appreciated.

I am also color blind or "deficient" some blue and purple will blend together. Sometimes red/green and reds and browns.
To me, I can always see the colors there but can not accurately tell you what color it is.
And the same for all of you, blood trailing is a major pain for me. But I can get it done eventually. Just cant see it from huge distance.
