The recording may not capture the audio as well as being there in person, but from this distance you can clearly hear my feet on the deck and the bow on the table. You cannot hear the string snap or the arrow's release, but you can definitely hear a whisper just before impact.
This video makes me wonder: is the deer responding to the sound of the shot? This video raises another question: perhaps they're not responding to the sound at all, but instead they are catching movement associated with the process of shooting a bow and the arrows release. Deer are acutely attuned to any movement. This may explain why shorter shots tend to have more"string jumping" then longer shots.
Based upon the video what is your opinion?
