We see a lot of videos from hunters that show us something hard to believe. This video easily falls into that category.
Watch this hunter carefully sneak up on a bedded doe in New Hampshire.
The hunter gave the deer a calm wake-up with various audibles and a few whistles. This was one sleepy deer!
Could you imagine if all deer hit deep periods of sleep like this? It would certainly make slipping in the stand much easier. In most cases, deer sleep in short, 30-second cycles which are followed by a brief period of alertness.
