All Ears

Deer have the ability to move their ears independently of each other to scan around for sounds. If both ears are pointed at the same place, they are generally trying to hone in on one particular sound. If one is pointed a different direction, they are often trying to gather more information.  Either way, they are challenging to sneak up on. Quietly drifting along the Neuse River in the early morning frequently rewards you with a deer sighting.
