I have thousands of Critter pics from my trail camera. But this one Doe that stops by from time to time keeps me wondering. Most of the night time critters I see on Cam reflect the cams light back in the picture through reflective pigments stimulating the photoreceptor on the way in and as it exits back. I noticed that the right eye on this doe wasn't reflecting back to the cam. Does this mean that she is blind or lost her night vision on the right side?. Just curious.

Very well looks like a blind eye to me. I've got one running around my yard that only reflects one eye. I know she is blind in the other, because I have seen her up close in the daylight. Looks just like that deer in my headlights when I see her.

Congratulations, on a fine buck Mr. Davenport. I harvested my first big buck with a bow on November 7, 2008 in sorhetun Illinois, on public land. It was my first time hunting outside of my home state of Georgia, now I'm hooked on bowhunting Illinois! Posted by: Adam
