Do Deer Have a Sixth Sense?
I've noticed on several occasions, especially when bowhunting, that deer tend to sense me if I make direct eye contact with them. I can be completely upwind from them and motionless, but they will make me out nearly every time if I look directly ...

Woman's Ocellated Gobbler Slams Door
