you know i think it might affect it a bit but when we are out coon hunting most of the time the deer know we are coming long before we see them so i think they still have good eyesight at night
In an artical I read in Deer & Deer Hunter Magazine, Deer have basically the same eye sight as humans, They do not see colors the way we do, but their basic vision is the same. Its the other sences, smell and hearing that lets them know when we are in the woods before we see them or they see us.
Just about like it does our eyes!
Their eyes are HUGE. They have a lot more rods compared to cones. A reflective layer in their eyes supposedly doubles the amount of light crossing their receptors. All this allows them to see much better than we do under low light. But pitch black is still pitch black.
Same way it does anybody's. Less light, harder to see.
