I was out stalking last night and came across a munty doe, unfortunately she saw me just as I saw her, about 60 yards ahead on the side of a ride. She was looking straight at me and started prodding/stamping her front right hoof on the ground. I froze and thought for a second she may hold still long enough for me to get on the sticks as she didn't bolt straight away, but alas off she went, tail high never to be seen again. Also that was the only thing I saw all night so still waiting for my 1st solo deer!
Is the stamping/prodding a normal trait as a warning signal as it's the 1st time I've seen it?
