The World’s Greatest Tracker

Jun 05, 2019 by Robert E. Levasseur, PhD

You are walking through the woods, and you see a deer just off the path. You freeze in your tracks!

 

You approach the animal slowly, your heart beating faster with every step, until you know that you can reach out and touch it.  But you stop short to avoid startling it. Eventually, the deer wanders off.


 

How did you do this without the deer sensing your presence and bolting?
