Do deer ever respawn after you've killed them? Piphil (talk) 07:30, 10 May 2013 (GMT)

Yes, they do. Jeancey (talk) 10:06, 10 May 2013 (GMT)
Thanks for the reply. Any idea after how long? Piphil (talk) 16:36, 11 May 2013 (GMT)
Ten to thirty days on average. Wrath425 (talk) 01:26, 15 November 2013 (GMT)

Deer attacking me?[edit]

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[edit]

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 (talk) at 11:02 on 23 July 2018
