    I'm going to post 3 10 second videos that were recorded back, to back, to back, about 4 minutes apart. In the first one, notice the bottom right corner. The second is obvious what I'm asking about, and the third one is after the whatever happened. These were about 11:15 PM CST on August 17. Anyone? Looks like a flashlight shining, but I can't imagine anyone being back there at 11:15. There are a couple of houses about half mile or more away, but walking through head high CRP in the dark? That deer in the first video would have spooked long before had somebody been fumbling around in the dark, at least I would think so.

    My best guess would be its bill scouting for mountain lions the only come in from neighboring states after dark. I really don't know sure looks like a flashlight.

    The movement of the orb mimics the way a doe would bob her head if she was trying to figure out something suspicious. Obviously the other doe had no eye shine from the ir. not random enough for a flashlight I don't think. I have to think it is the reflection of something on an animal. No idea what animal.

    Its a flashlight.I went to zoom on computer and zoomed in at 200 and you can see a person squatted down with a ball cap on shining the light around.

    Wow, you have proof why sometimes we never see deer when we go hunting, they can be invisible. Just their eyes can still reflect light in the dark.

    Are you pulling our leg? I went back and looked again. Zoomed in best I could and see none of what you describe. If its there can you dial us in a little. I really want to know what it is.

    I think he's pulling our legs. It appears to be a flashlight shined on the bushes from behind the camera, at least that is what I think. I just can't imagine someone being back there at that time of night. If it were coon hunters, and I've never had anybody in there coon hunting that I know of, I would have surely had video or audio of the hounds.

    The first video seems to me to be a moth reflecting the light. The second video doesn't look like an insect though. It does look like a flashlight, but I can't see two bucks being in the exact same spot not 4 minutes after someone would have been in there he would have spooked them away. I'm guessing its just their eyes..

    I agree. I just can't see them being there 3 minutes prior, then coming back. But Grandma, what big eye you have. Could it be an angle making the two eye appear as one? One of the strangest things I've seen.

    Nah, that's too big to be any kind of eye shine. Has to be a flashlight, but hard to believe that doe was back that quickly.

    Well I ain't to far from bowling green and being the good Guy that I am I'd be willing to come in and hunt your setup opening weekend. Just to make sure everything is OK. But just because I'm a nice Guy. Lol I have no idea what the heck it is. Maybe its just a reflection of something I sometimes get big orange spots in my picture off in the distance.
