and our Summits are hung. It’s time to fine-tune shooting our bows. GRANT: Fine tuning for me means practicing
from an elevated position. GRANT: I’ve shared that I started my practice
technique earlier in the summer by using blind bale. That’s a great technique to make sure the
form is just right. GRANT: As I advanced, I started shooting a
single arrow to put pressure on myself, just like a hunting situation, to make each shot
count. GRANT: These forms of practice are designed
to really perfect your form, but that form could be instantly changed if you go from
shooting at a position that’s level versus shooting out of an elevated blind. GRANT: Deer season opens very soon in many
states, and I’m in a stage of fine-tuning my practice, and that means shooting from
an elevated position. The best way to adapt those changes is don’t
change at all but rather bend at the waist. If we bend at the waist, then we keep the
same relationship of anchor point and bow arm that we have when we’re shooting on the
ground. GRANT: Not only do I need to practice my form
but I want to focus on taking shots at the lower third. The lower third always results in two things
– it gives you a safety net in case a deer drops, you’ll still be in the vitals or
the kill zone. Oftentimes they may hear something or sense
something and drop. They’re not dropping to dodge the arrow. They’re simply dropping to load their legs
and get the heck out of there. And when you do hit the lower third, it’s
easier for blood to exit the body cavity and leave a better blood trail. GRANT: Through the years, especially the last
eight years when we’ve been filming, I’ve learned how important it is to aim at the
bottom third of a deer’s vitals. GRANT: A big advantage of filming your hunts
is you get to replay them in slow motion and see exactly what happened. GRANT: The biggest lesson I’ve learned throughout
the years is how frequently deer drop or some people call it jumping string. GRANT: I’m always shocked at how quickly deer
can respond to a shot. GRANT: (Whispering) (Inaudible) DANIEL: D/Code. We’ve got field spray, shampoo, bow hangers,
broadheads, arrows, extra lighted nocks, Fourth Arrow arms. GRANT: Do I got plenty of pants? Is this an extra pair of pants? DANIEL: Probably, yup. DANIEL: Your arrow should have DeadMeats on
’em and nocks. GRANT: Recently, Daniel, the interns and I
were invited to hunt in Kentucky’s opener with my good friend, Mr. Terry Hamby. GRANT: We arrived in time to get in the stand
that afternoon and have our first hunt of 2017 season. GRANT: (Whispering) Got a great setup this
afternoon. The wind is out of the northwest, and we’re
in a hardwood runner that runs pretty much northeast to southwest with a food plot right
over here and a bedding area – almost like a hidey hole situation – and a large ag
field a couple hundred yards over here. So, various deer are gonna be coming on that
bedding area, maybe stopping by that little hidey hole food plot – although it’s getting
pretty short – coming through this funnel and heading towards a large ag feeding area. GRANT: (Whispering) We’ve got some clover
planted along the road down in front of us. Mr. Hamby does a great job of managing his
property, so I can’t wait to sit back and start the season. GRANT: (Whispering) But a little reminder,
the two things that move the most are our hands and our face. We’ve got all this camouflage on and these
white things moving around. So always bring some paint along, darken these
areas up so it’s not as obvious when we move for a rangefinder or we go to draw. GRANT: (Whispering) I like to rub the back
of my hand, the back of my hand, ‘cause I don’t care if the inside is dark. This is where I need to camouflage out here. That’s what’s gonna show to the deer side. GRANT: (Whispering) 24. GRANT: (Whispering) Is he chasing her? GRANT: We saw several deer but I never had
a good shot opportunity. GRANT: Finally, we saw a doe that seemed to
be headed our way. GRANT: Suddenly her head went up and Daniel
and I knew something had her attention. GRANT: (Whispering) That does not make me
happy. I’ve said this before, I do not like dogs
that roam and leave their property. GRANT: (Whispering) Those dogs do not belong
to this landowner. And just spooked that deer. We had the deer behind us; we could hear a
deer snorting. I thought maybe someone was coming up the
road. Well it was, it was two dogs – not good. GRANT: I really dislike seeing dogs run wild
and trespassing on neighboring properties. I believe people should have enough respect
for their neighbors to keep their dogs in such a way that they don’t trespass on neighboring
properties. GRANT: These dogs clearly spooked this deer;
stressed her by chasing her; and certainly ruined our chances of helping Mr. Hamby meet
his management objectives; and our chances for bringing home some fresh venison. GRANT: As the week continued, Wes and Tyler
had the opportunity to use a Nikon scope and do some long-distance scouting. GRANT: It’s not that I don’t trust the interns
but I want to see what they’re seeing. And that’s easy when we use the iSpotter and
attach our phone to the Nikon scope. GRANT: Reviewing their footage gave Mr. Hamby
and I some valuable information on what deer were browsing on, the soybeans, and how they
were entering and exiting those fields. GRANT: Daniel and I selected a different stand
for the second afternoon. GRANT: It wasn’t long after we got settled
in that we spotted the first doe. GRANT: Several deer were using this hidey
hole food plot – including a couple of nice-looking, young bucks. GRANT: Finally, a doe stepped within range. GRANT: (Whispering) 40 yards. GRANT: (Whispering) She ducked it. GRANT: After the shock passed, we watched
the footage in the tree and knew that this doe had dropped so far the arrow barely nicked
her back. GRANT: (Whispering) (Inaudible) GRANT: Obviously, this doe reacted but I find
it most interesting she didn’t start reacting until the arrow was most of the way there. I don’t know if that means it took her awhile
to react to the noise or she didn’t pick up any noise until later on. GRANT: If there happens to be a sound engineer
or someone with skills that will allow us to diagnose these events, I’d love to share
some footage with you and work on a project. GRANT: Another technique is have our producer
put a dot right where the arrow goes and then replay the footage and put that on the doe
before the shot. GRANT: If you hunt long enough, you probably
have similar experiences. And that’s why it’s so important to always
aim at the very bottom third of the vitals. GRANT: You’re gonna start fanning back out
about right here. GRANT: I want you to hit the deer… GRANT: Many years ago, I helped Mr. Hamby
develop a habitat management plan for his property. It’s been fun to watch him implement that
plan and watch the quality of the habitat and herd respond. GRANT: Our host, Mr. Terry Hamby, is a close
friend and a fellow hunter. GRANT: While we were hunting with Mr. Hamby,
Tyler had the opportunity to join him and film a hunt from a Redneck blind. GRANT: As Wes and Tyler had observed, there
were a lot of deer feeding in this soybean field. TERRY: (Whispering) We have, uh, far too many,
uh, deer on the property – (Inaudible) carrying capacity. So, this year we have a goal to harvest 75
does and to feed the hungry. Tonight, I’m gonna try to do my part. GRANT: As time passed that afternoon, Mr.
Hamby and Tyler started seeing a lot of deer. GRANT: Finally, a doe got within range of
the blind. TYLER: (Whispering) (Inaudible) The one walking,
try to get on her. The one walking right towards us. TERRY: (Whispering) I can’t tell if she’s
behind the (Inaudible). TYLER: (Whispering) Alright. Can you get on the one that’s still out there? TERRY: (Whispering) Can you see it? TYLER: (Whispering) I can see it. TERRY: (Whispering) If she turns broadside. TYLER: (Whispering) I’m on her. Just if you think you can shoot her, shoot
her. TERRY: (Whispering) Let me wait, until she
turns broadside. UNKNOWN: (Whispering) Wait. TYLER: (Whispering) Alright, you ready? TYLER: (Whispering) Go ahead. TERRY: (Whispering) You ready? TYLER: (Whispering) I’m ready. TERRY: (Whispering) That one’s dead. TYLER: (Whispering) Perfect. TERRY: (Whispering) That one’s dead. TYLER: (Whispering) Perfect. TERRY: (Whispering) Wow. We got out early this afternoon, and we started
seeing deer early, and does were coming up out of the woods, and, and deer coming out
of the woods into the, into the bean field to browse. And with this cool weather, uh, it’s really
been exciting. We saw a lot deer. I just got a good shot on a doe at about 40
yards – my first deer of the year. I’m really excited. GRANT: Mr. Hamby made a great shot. We all got together after dark; tracked the
doe down; brought her back to the skinning shed. Venison number one in the cooler. UNKNOWN: (Inaudible) GRANT: And I want to emphasis to you on the
educational level that your success in life truly will be largely determined – in any
profession you go in – in communication skills. GRANT: While we were in Kentucky, Mr. Hamby
graciously hosted a local chapter of FFA, Future Farmers of America. GRANT: Hunting is incredibly important to
our national economy. GRANT: How about if I told you that without
deer hunting in the United States, not a single public school could have classes tomorrow
like they had today because there’s a huge decrease in tax revenue if we did not have
hunting. GRANT: So, our gut is about 33 feet long and
we all have canines but we’re all made to be eating some meat and some vegetables – just
the way we’re made. So, what we want to do is get a way out of
production ag from being totally chemical dependent to using more natural systems that
are time tested and proven over and over and over again to give us higher yields, more
nutrients in the crop. It’s really not – our thinking’s been kinda
off. It’s not how many bushels of corn we can produce
per acre. It’s how many nutrients we can transfer to
wherever we’re feeding humans or cattle or deer or whatever. TERRY: We’ll line up down each silo. Moms and dads too, I want you to get a big
handful of this. TERRY: Smell of it. Smells like dirt. GRANT: Smell it. Feel it. TERRY: Really good dirt, really good dirt. GRANT: Didn’t smell like what you thought. You thought it was gonna be gross, didn’t
you? Tell the truth. GRANT: Again, we kinda think about soil being
inert. But it’s alive – it should be alive and
living and lots and lots of moving parts. And when you have that structure, it’s super
healthy and you get awesome looking beans. And when we disc, we’re not only physically
breaking up that structure, but we’re putting so much oxygen in the soil, and, and over-oxygenated
soil kills the good bacteria we’re talking about, and promotes the bad bacteria. GRANT: There’s always ways to improve the
soil. And these may include using compost – like
Antler Dirt, adding minerals through Trophy Rock Grow, and minimal tillage systems. But we got to remember that our greatest natural
resource – our ability to feed the planet – is dependent upon our soils. We all should learn better techniques for
soil improvement practices. GRANT: All this nitrogen is evenly dispersed
all through this soil and Mr. Hamby doesn’t have to pay to put more nitrogen in soil. GRANT: Has anyone here ever just pulled a
raw soybean open and eaten it? You know if I had never eaten a soybean in
my life – and especially I’m thinking about going in ag – I’d be eating soybeans. GRANT: It won’t hurt ya. If you throw up, do it on the bus. Okay? GRANT: About 100 more yards. Come on. Don’t stare at the camera. Just look natural. GRANT: When I went to school – I’m a wildlife
biologist and I work with deer. I’ve always worked with deer. Man, when other grad students were out trapping
turkeys or shocking fish and it was on a Saturday, I wasn’t going to the football game, I was
going with them. And I want y’all to learn this principle – please
learn this principle – you’re lack of responsibility, 100% of the time, becomes someone else’s responsibility
because responsibility never goes away. GRANT: There’s a lot of issues with clover. I have clover on my farm too. And it’s a pain in the tush. Is that not true Mr. Hamby? TERRY: Yes, sir. GRANT: And Andrew – who’s the guy actually
taking care of it – would probably go, “I wish we never had any clover on this farm.” But at a time of year – two times a year,
actually – before those beans, before the soil is warming up for beans to germinate
and grow, the deer need a really good source of protein. And clover is a great source of protein. And deer will just be lining these roads eating
clover, won’t they Andrew? GRANT: Turkeys and deer and rabbits just – you
drive through here. How many might you see on a good day, Andrew? Stem to stern. GRANT: Yeah, 40, 50 deer. In the, out of 1,000 acres, they’re in a few
acres of clover – maybe 10, 12 acres of clover, something like that. GRANT: It’s a lot of responsibility on Andrew
to keep this looking good for a short, relatively short benefit. The beans are feeding deer months out of the
year. This, not so much but it’s critical. GRANT: I believe the classroom alone is not
enough experience for any profession. That’s why I’m a huge believer in internships,
tours, volunteer positions and other ways to get our students out in the field and involved
with their chosen profession. UNKNOWN: (Inaudible) GRANT: The following day we drove to a property
near Nashville to help a landowner with his habitat management goals. GRANT: And will you – I hear bow hunting. Will you bow hunt and gun hunt? I’m just looking at the design of the property. WESLEY: We do. GRANT: You hunt all the seasons. WESLEY: We do. GRANT: Mr. Finch’s goals were pretty simple. He wanted to increase the quantity and quality
of deer and turkey using the property so he and his daughter Ryleigh would have some great
hunting opportunities. GRANT: He shared with us some of his trail
camera pictures and it was obvious there were some nice deer already using the property. GRANT: I’m gonna say when he hits the ground
– 165 – taking off some velvet – this, that and the other. WESLEY: Yeah, that’s what I was thinking. He’d be pushing 170. GRANT: Yeah, somewhere in there. Well, let’s put some boots on and take a ride. WESLEY: Okay. GRANT: After we reviewed the maps, it was
time to hit the trail, put our boots on the ground. GRANT: From studying the maps and touring
the property, it was obvious there were several large hayfields along the creek. GRANT: All these fields were in the valley
and it will be great feeding fields but may not be optimal for hunting situations, especially
bow hunting. GRANT: As we started touring the ridges, I
started identifying different areas he can make hidey hole food plots on top of the ridges. I’m confident that deer are travelling these
ridges to get to these larger feeding fields in the bottom and we can shortstop them on
the ridge top where the wind is much more constant than in the bottom where it’s likely
to swirl. GRANT: 100% browsed. If we put food on here, it’s gonna totally
be a game changer. WESLEY: Hmm. Hmm. GRANT: (Inaudible) GRANT: Beautiful morning in Tennessee and
we’re walking a property with Wesley and Ryleigh. They purchased this property not long ago. WESLEY: About a year. GRANT: And really interested in developing
it for better deer and turkey hunting. Ryleigh loves to hunt. RYLEIGH: Yes, sir. GRANT: Yeah. So we’re gonna help ’em out with this plan. GRANT: We’re on a ridge top here. It drops off, oh 100 or 200 feet on each side. And it’s a pretty narrow ridge. So, right off the bat we’ve identified a great
place for a hidey hole food plot or a small food plot. It’s narrow right up here, a little wider
here and narrows right behind us. So, we’re gonna make maybe a quarter acre
or half acre food plot. We could actually leave a few of these bigger
trees ‘cause we’re getting some sunshine in here throughout the day; take all the smaller
trees out – these smaller ones on the edge. Like leave this larger oak over here for a
tree stand and larger trees. We don’t want to go so far that we don’t have
tree stand placement, obviously. GRANT: Great travel corridor. They’re gonna walk this ridge top. It’s easier. Just like you and I said, “Boy, we don’t
want to go through that valley here.” Same way with deer. And we’re gonna plant this with fall food
only. We’re not worried about summertime here. WESLEY: Okay. GRANT: This is a fall hunting thing. GRANT: We’ll lay out exactly what we’re gonna
plant. We get down there and we can write some notes
and stuff. Don’t need to have to remember all that here. GRANT: And this – I think this would be
a dynamite food plot right here. I’m, I’m, I’m already excited about this
one. WESLEY: (Inaudible) GRANT: I’ve shared with you in the past I
often look for ice cream plants or indicator species that tells me the balance of the number
of deer versus the amount of quality food on a property. One of those ice cream plants I detect on
the property is Smilax or Cat Brier. GRANT: Gosh, look at this Smilax here or Cat
Brier. And almost all the leaves are gone. They’ve browsed down to an eighth inch or
so. And, and bigger in some places. But, it’s beautiful; some big, mature, white
oak timber. He and his family love it. It’s, it’s stunning. It’s almost park-like. So, what we’re gonna do is create more food
plots; get maximum sunshine to the forest floor; create more tons per acre. Instead of doing TSI and have a few hundred
pounds per acre, we have concentrated areas of food where we’re getting tons per acre
and a series of hidey hole or feeding food plots. That’s gonna be a better prescription for
his family’s goals and objectives. GRANT: So, we’d rather create smaller food
plots where we get tons of forage per acre than mess up these steep hillsides with tractors
and skidders removing the logs. So, in this situation, a series of food plots
is more desirable for the landowner’s objectives. GRANT: No matter what system we use, we clearly
need more food. Deer are hungry here but we’re gonna turn
that around by adding a series of high-quality food plots. GRANT: The existing hayfields were primarily
in fescue and Johnsongrass, and neither of those species are attractive or nutritious
to deer. GRANT: We know that we need to maximize food. We’ve got water everywhere; it’s a non-issue. And the steep valleys and the, and the ridge
sides are gonna be your sanctuaries ‘cause you just can’t effectively hunt ‘em, hunt
them. And, and I want you to monitor food two times
a year. I want you to think about late summer and
late winter. WESLEY: I know that the Roundup type sprays
is not the best for the Johnsongrass or especially for the lespedeza. GRANT: It’s not gonna kill lespedeza. It, I’m, I’m gonna say you’re gonna get
a 50% kill at best out of Johnsongrass. But let’s see if the Buffalo can out-compete
it. Starve it a little bit and see where we are
in the spring. If we need to spray it in the spring, you’re
gonna need to use – it’s, it’s pronounced Imazapyr, but it’s spelled Im-a-zapyr. Sericea – if you’re growing Roundup Ready
beans – in a year or two, you will, you’ll stress it and then you’ll end up killing
it with Roundup. You just don’t get it all the first year. WESLEY: Right. GRANT: But if you’re growing Roundup Ready
beans each summer – between them shading it out and the Roundup – you’ll, you’ll
get on top of it. I had some fields that had pretty bad sericea
that I got – I finally terminated after a year or two with just using the glyphosate. GRANT: By terminating the grass species and
those hayfield bottoms and planting much better quality forage and creating some hidey hole
food plots, there’ll be tons and tons of more forage on the property which will result in
a more productive deer and turkey population. GRANT: Just as I followed the progress of
Mr. Hamby’s project, I look forward to following along with the progress at Mr. Finch’s property. GRANT: It’s a time of year when someone at
GrowingDeer is hunting almost every day. If you want to see what we’re doing and follow
along with our techniques on a day-to-day basis, check us out on Facebook, Instagram
or Twitter. GRANT: If you’ve watched GrowingDeer very
long, you know we’re all extremely busy. In fact, I travel portions of about 30 weeks
a year giving seminars, helping fellow landowners or going huntin’. But even in that rat race, for me it’s extremely
important to slow down and enjoy Creation and more important to find quiet time every
day to listen to what the Creator is saying to me. I hope you’ll join me in seeking the Creator’s
will for your life. Thanks for watching GrowingDeer.

  1. The last buck I got had some interesting antlers, the brow tines were curved at the ends, is this genetics or something else? Just curious, if you know please respond.

  2. When you're shooting from the garage loft, do you put out warning cones so it's not easy for someone to wander through? I'm ancy about shooting in an area where I can't see people step out, like the random meter reader, wandering through.

    Just food for thought.

  3. I was wondering if y'all could to tips or what to plant in rocky ground I have a lot lime stone and lot of cedar brush and not a lot of rain In Central

  4. Great video again! Helps me think about what my goals are for my small property, it's not always a cut and dry management system. Hope you are all doing well, look forward to seeing Grant's Dad hunting with him! Hope he's doing well!

  5. Awesome Channel! Please take a look at my channel! Any feedback would be appreciated !

  6. Hi guys….always enjoy the vids and education…we're having an outbreak of EHD in our area of Pa near Pittsburgh and have watched a few of your vids showing that it had hit your area and was wondering the outcome of the deer in your area and the prospects for the future of our population. Thanks and keep up the good work

  7. I created a spread sheet that takes the speed of sound vs shooting distance into account. It also takes into account the fact the arrow slows slightly the further it travels. I can share that with you. I'm a mechanical engineer not a sound or acoustic engineer but deer ducking is more about physics than reverberations or something else a sound engineer would be required for. I love what you guys do with experiments and biology and would love to help you guys.

  8. The sound from your bow only takes 105 mili seconds to reach the deer at 40 yards, depending on temp and elevation (it wouldn't effect it greatly). I am guessing the reaction time of the deer isn't that quick it's a bit delayed. Curious to hear what your idea is! I am a live sound engineer.

  9. I love the videos and how professional they are…there are so many tips and pointers you include to really help the viewer understand what's going on…keep up the great work!!

  10. hey growing deer team just saw this episode another awesome show it's great that you have got into hunting again that means we will be bow hunting in two weeks in VT can't wait to see what the year brings us good luck to you guys in your doe and buck management this season good bless

  11. May I ask what you guys do with the carcasses from your harvests? I would obviously think you dispose of them on your property somewhere but seems like that many carcasses would be like a food plot for predators.

    (Edit) Also, I got my first doe of the season last night!

  12. I am the President of my FFA at North Jackson High School in Alabama and would love to learn more about your system that you use for food plots and how to develop the soil through no till drills

  13. The Bow hunt simulator app has drop string estimat based on sound speed, distance and an estimated reaction time.
    Not too much research done on the topic, your footage really demonstrate the reaction time and impact it has.

  14. Hey guys, it kind of sounded like your broadhead was loose. There was a rattle when you drew and during the arrow flight when the doe ducked the arrow.

  15. I totally understand the frustration of domestic dogs busting a hunt it happened to me 2 years ago they spooked the doe and young buck in front of us and we didn't see another deer for the rest of that day very irritating

  16. Temperature is a condition that affects the speed of sound. Heat, like sound, is a form of kinetic energy. Molecules at higher temperatures have more energy, thus they can vibrate faster. Since the molecules vibrate faster, sound waves can travel more quickly.

  17. My educated Guess : The Doe Ducked from the sound of your arrow fletchings flying as the arrow approached. I've heard sound travels at roughly 1125fps which is waay faster then that arrow(although thats a short distance). I know the fletchings make a whisping sound as they cut through the air ,plus that excellent peripheral vision of the deer.

  18. Hey you may want to check this guys channel looks like he's uploading a lot of yalls videos.

  19. The doe ducked your arrow because your broadhead was loose and making noise. You can hear it rattling when you draw your bow back (9:05)  and it buzzes all the way through the air (9:12) on the shot. That's why so many people are calling your bow loud, not the bow.. it' s the broadhead. Whatever is used to retain the blades may have been loose. I have seen this happen in the past with my own setups and switched to broadheads that do not produce that issue. Your shot placement was obviously right on. Problem solved.

  20. Hey guys. Is there anyway I can send you a pic of a property I hunt and I trace the property line and you tell me the best spot to put my stand?

  21. Just a PSA for all viewers, I'm sure Grant explained the risks of Imazapyr to the landowner in the video.

    Imazapyr is a persistent, pre and post emergent herbicide that is absorbed through foliage AND root systems. Caution should be used as it has a high risk of travel through soil, water, and even through connected root systems. It will stay in the soil and kill most species, including your food plots. The average SOIL half life of Imazapyr is 25-140 days. Read the label carefully and use caution when applying near any water source.

    For more information use this link or just google it.

  22. hey guys at growing deer team have you had a chance to hunt again soon nice that first doe hunt hopefully the neighbor keeps their dogs on their property

  23. the excitement keeps on building in our deer Haven here in VT we had another nice 8 point we have never seen before on our cameras he's only 2 maybe 3 but he's a healthy looking buck with potential so if he sticks around he will make an awesome mature deer in a couple years we are so eager to hunt it's unreal lol

  24. Grant I came across your channel about a year or so ago and have combed through many of your videos. I'd love to get you up here in Ohio to see what I could do to manage the land I hunt better. I really appreciate all the information that you and your team share. Keep up the great work guys!

  25. What happens when they jump the arrow?! My Mathews Reezen 6.5 is a speed bow and is really quiet. Along with my Z7 Extreme. I aim dead on and with muzzy or schwacker they bleed like a mother!

  26. Hey guys I love the video! I have a quick question about management. I manage 40 acres in northern Minnesota and have four different low impact entrance stands. But it seems like the areas that I clear out to access the stands attract deer for bedding. Is it sensible to destroy bedding in inconvenient areas? Thank you.

  27. good morning to all at growing deer tv thanks for being such check an informal and helpful show my son myself and many of our friends enjoy watching the new segments to see what we will learn or how we can keep improving our "proving grounds" for deer turkey and other wildlife in general just hats off to you guys as well as thanks so much

  28. Hi Grant , that was a nice video. I am leting you know that mu mom have cancer. We need a big prayer for my mom of 81 years old. She have the slow kind of cancer in her right lung. God Bless you and your family. Take Care and stay safe.

  29. wow that's awesome guys we are looking forward to bow season it starts next weekend here in Vermont I'll b sure to let u know how we do and if we get footage may be putting it on social media I will keep u and Grant up to date hope ur early luck continues

  30. Had 2 dogs ruin my set up this past saturday evening. I was beyond livid but thats hunting. Good luck this season guys!

  31. I hear you talking about the Aiming for lower 1/3 of the Vitals. and how quickly the deers react to the sound of the shot..  Isnt that also in reaction to how you call at it. Example if the deer stops on its own and gives you a shot. you wouldn't have to adjust as much cause the deer isn't on alert or posturing up..  but when you call to the deer.. like say Blaah to get him to stop. he is now on full alert and will jump and the sound of anything. making the deer most likely to lower and you would have to adjust the shot. I don't have much experience in the field. so ive been watching these videos. but when you call to the deer is it possible that they will posture differently from when walking naturally and stopping. so when you call to them. they posture differently and allow them to jump or move faster when on alert? example of how he stops and his shoulders are forward more or backwards more when cause you called to it.  Vs. how he would if he came out to the edge of a field to stop and look around and you taking the shot without calling at him so hes not fully on alert and likely to jump as quick to adjust your shot to the lower 1/3..  so the probability of you having to adjust for that would be higher. just wondering
