on two occassions when leaving the blind at night, I have jumped deer that run off making a sound more like a screeching bird than a deer. not a snort or grunt, is this a bark made by a doe? has anyone heard similar sounds?

Squirrels can make several weird sounds especially when alarmed. Then again their still finding new deer sounds everyday, keeps the call makers in business.

A fox can sound like a woman screaming. A screech owl that is startled.:crazy:
I agree with wmi and Coyote pups make a sound similar to what you're describing also.

Cougars sound just like a woman screaming too...

But I've also noticed that when a doe is bounding off while snorting or blowing at you she makes a different noise...it is a tad bit more high pitch but I don't think it sounds like a bird...

Sometimes a deer sounds high pitched when it blows and takes off. But the sound is basically the same with all deer that blow. Where do you hunt at bullet? Pending on your location it could've been wolves, coyotes, bear cubs, Bigfoot, Chupacabra, well you get the picture. Thanks for joining the site.

I know exactley the sound you are reffering to. It is a hard sound to descibe but I have heard it many times. It is a doe. Anytime I have heard a doe make that sound she has had fawns with her are been in a large heard. I really believe it is a warning to the heard or fawn. It is definately diffrent than the sound of a dow blowing, its more like a barking noise. I can almost assure you, once you here that noise, you won't be seing any deer in that spot for a few hours at least.
