Watch What’s Going On With The Deer
By Dorraine Fisher
As I was leaving one of my local wildlife sanctuaries one evening as the sun was going down, I nearly jumped out of my truck seat when a whitetail doe zipped across the road in front of me. I just almost hit her, but missed her, by I believe, only inches, and I watched her fly over a fence into the rows of cornstalks. Even though I could no longer see her, I could see the cornstalks rustling further and further away as she kept running across the field away from me.
I’ve been thinking about this for a long time, but this got me thinking again. What causes deer to bolt in such away? I mean in a way in which they look crazed and scared to death and don’t care what else is in their path.
And then I remembered something my grandfather had told me. When he had once spoke about hunting predators years ago that would attack his farm animals. “If you want to find them, just follow what they eat,” he said. Which brings me to what all this has to do with bigfoot.
Researchers and other experts believe that deer are sasquatches main food source. Many incidents have been documented. And it seems that wherever bigoot sightings have taken place, those areas are generally teeming with deer.
Now, all this may sound really obvious, like we should all know this already, but no one talks about it all that much. Grandpa, an avid hunter, tracker, and woodsman had a very valid point. Any hiker knows that if you run across an abundant area of a dangerous animal’s food source, you’re likely to run into that animal.
So, if there are weird things going on with the deer, are we likely to find Bigfoot there? Of course, not always, but it seems there might be a better chance.
Our team leader, Thomas Marcum, was investigating several bigfoot sightings in his area last year when a deer scrambled into his back yard, wild-eyed, exhausted and bleeding from the mouth. Of course we try to find another explanation for this kind of behavior in deer, but what if it’s what we want to think it is. Sure, it could be a cougar or bear flushing them out, but if there have been sightings in the area the deer are acting strange, we have to wonder.
In my encounter last year, two very young deer, still spotted, nearly knocked me down a canyon running from something they considered scarier than me. Both of their noses touched my hand before they both ran in opposite directions, and not the direction they came. And there was no mother in sight. The little ones looked scared out of their minds and wasted no time getting away. And I heard several crashing sounds that morning that sounded like heavy wood on wood that sent the deer scrambling in circles. Things that make you go "Hmmm."

Are there other explanations for all this phenomena? Of course. But each case needs to be taken on its own merit and the wildlife conditions in the area have to be weighed. It’s important to understand the wildlife in your research area and each animal’s normal behavior. What really causes such odd behavior in deer? What causes deer carcasses to be found in strange places in strange configurations? Are we ignoring this point more than we should?
And in the case of researching bigfoot, the deer may tell a lot more of the story than we’re realizing.
