I have been watching some bow hunting videos on youtube. When hunting with a bow, the hunter needs to get really close to the animal, sometimes less than 10 meters.
It seems to me implicitly, and some hunters even say explicitly, that the animals (deer/elk/moose/buffalo) only see the hunters when they move. As long as the hunter has reasonably camouflaged clothes and is not smelled by the animal, they can stand in plain sight and the animal does notice them.
Do these game animals (deer/elk/moose/buffalo) really have such poor eyesight?
here are some videos as examples:
