Default Squirrels and birds give position away.

Some mornigns it seems likeevery bird and squirrel in the county are in the same of tree as me. The birds make all kinds of noise and the squirrels bark at me like crazy.I know they are territorial animals but do they give my position away, cause it seems like I don't see any deer on those days? Anybody else have this problem

Occasionally that happens to me but soon after they bark at me they shut up. As long as you don't make any loud, unusual sounds/noises in the woods you should be fine. Deer really key off the non-typical woods noise and I'm sure slink the other way.

It seems to me when the squirrels chirp deer at far away, Almost every time they chirp a deer or coyote walks close by. Maybe there protecting the territory from other animals aswell.

I had a squirrel start barking the other day and sure enough a doe emerged from a cornfield by the corner i was sitting in. The squirrel chirped for about 3 or 4 minutes before the deer appeared to me. I really never had a squirrel bark at me. I even swung an arrow at one the other day cause it tried to get in my stand. It just left the tree and went about his business.

Tip: Listen for the Bluejays and squirrels to sound off whilehunting. They are the "Watchdogs" of the woods, and announce to the world that something is moving!!

HA!!
You ought to have one come down the tree above your head
and jump onto your bow!!!!!
Scared the livin crap out'a me!!

Yeah, like another poster said "watch dogs" for shure.
Although, if you stay very still they will go about thier buisness,
the deer will do the same.
Try blowing on your doe call a couple times when the squirrels
bark at you,they are used to that sound and it mimics that a doe
is around that the squirrel is barking at.(that could work to your advantage this time of year)Works for me!

I've had the same problem a few times, and the best thing that has worked for me is to blow on my deer call a couple of times, and they usually shut up
