Been seeing a lot of deer the last few days,at mid day!Seems like this happens every year somewhere around this time.Think it was Wednesday,REALLY HOT! Field was full of deer,right around noon.Dont know if its a moon phase thing or what?

Anyone else seeing this behavior?

The are usually getting away from the high biting insect density back in the woods.

Actually, it is very well documented for many species. Parasite avoidance affects habitat selection and behavior when the parasite population is high.

Last year on one of those 104-105 days i saw 10 deer in 3 differnt groups in the middle of the day in the fields.They live in it all year.Heat doesnt bother them.As BSK said.I believe its the insects in the woods that bothers them.
