Of course deer look up, I have killed several that were looking directly at me when I shot them. One just has to learn how to behave when a deer spots them and not move. I am amused with the thought that deer have some super powers to out wit hunters. Hunters are not invisible nor are deer super natural. I have killed as many deer while on the ground as when I was in a tree stand, the key is self control when the deer is in range.
