“Hooves Crashing Down!” A cool 6-photo Swipe sequence of a big, thick-necked Whitetail Buck (with a few missing tines) stomping his hoof as the first snow flies between him and me. Whitetail Deer stomp their front hooves sharply on the ground as a way of communicating to other deer around them that something’s not right. That possible danger is nearby. This is usually a precursor to snorting and running off if they don’t find satisfaction that you aren’t danger. Though sometimes they will quit stomping and will settle down again and will go about their business if you just don’t move. Not even blink your eye!  I also feel like hoof-stomping is the deer’s attempt to shock you into moving or revealing yourself as friend or foe, with every stomp of the hoof. How many here have seen Whitetail Deer stomp their hooves? And what are your thoughts of what they are communicating by doing this behavior?  Do you agree with me, or disagree and think they’re saying something totally different? .
