Deer attacking me?
Just a note: I was heading northwest from the area of Swindler's Den, near the unmarked stone shrine thing, and was randomly attacked by a deer. I continued in the same direction and was attacked by 3 more (I think one was technically an elk). Further along, the ones I encountered ran away like normal. Any idea why? Just a weird bug?

- I've had the same think happened to me a few times in Whiterun Hold dan the Rift, a few deer and elks would run over to me and attacked. Thought it was deliberate on the developers' part; that some of them would have their aggression set high. But now that you mention it, it could be a bug. Enodia (talk) 02:23, 8 December 2014 (GMT)
Stealth and Detection System
The articule already mentions that Deer may detect you, even when the Sneak-Detection Eye is closed. But I think they actually have a unique system - in my experience I always land sneak attack when the deer's head is bowed down (to graze), but never land a sneak attack when their heads are raised (looking about).
Has anyone had similar experience/would help me test? Try just landing sneak attacks (with a bow) when the deer's head is down in the grass. — Unsigned comment by 220.127.116.11 (talk) at 11:02 on 23 July 2018
