Deer, UFO Sightings In 2014 Caught On Photo In Mississippi Hunting Camera Video?

A photo of a deer appears to show a UFO sighting, some claim. The photo shows the ghostly outline of Bambi lit up by an unidentified object in the sky. But what makes this case so interesting is that the 2014 UFO sighting was made by an automated hunting camera.

In a related report by The Inquisitr, on New Year’s Day, many in Sweden reported so many UFO sightings that the government passed a law to ban the flying of Thai-style lanterns. California UFO photos run along a similar pattern, although some experts think earthquake lights might explain some UFO videos. But how do you explain UFO sightings where a passenger jet almost has a collision?

On February 16, 2014, the deer/”UFO” footage was taken in a hunting area near the Cumbest Bluff of Jackson County, Mississippi. The trail camera records that around 7:20 PM a dim light began to appear after several deer appeared as is normal. The video gets weirder, however, because the deer are brightly lit up by what looks like a spotlight, even though the trail camera uses infrared and does not need any lights to record. By 7:56 PM, a shape appears that looks like headlights floating in the sky, but since there are not any roads anywhere nearby, it’s claimed it can’t be a car.

The deer/UFO confrontation cannot be explained by Rainer and Edith Shattles, who own the trail cameras. They do admit that “unusual things” happen around the area, but they laugh these prior events off as being explained by pranks by their grandchildren. In the case of the deer UFO sighting, they had only expected video of a “nice buck” to show up, and they know their grandkids don’t have anything to do with the results this time.

At this point, Rainier claims that the deer UFO photo is definitely an unidentified flying object, but he also doubts it’s of alien origin:

“Well, if it’s alien, I’m not sure about that. But it’s definitely a UFO. Now whether it’s a government drone or what, I wish if nothing else, one of them would step up and say, ‘Yes, that’s ours.’ It’s a puzzle that may never be solved and it’s one that’s kind of fun, adds a little flavor to life, I guess you could say. We are just fascinated over it because of the fact that it was right here and it’s real.”

The couple has tried coming up with reasonable explanations for what the object may be, but so far they’re stumped. Either way, they’re certain it was something they had “never seen before.”

    We must remember that Ufo experiances are for the wild life too and does not just pertain to humans – experiances are for ALL organic life .

    It was Donner being picked up by Rudolph and Rudolph's son. Oh yeah, (spoiler alert) Rudolph is married.

    On New Years Eve hundreds of people saw a HUGE UFO in the skies of Nor Cali.

    Sounds like the grandkids are explaining to the reporters, that their grandparents "laugh them off," them being the UFO's.

    ufo….ya….right….i got a dead horse at saratoga i want to sell you

  7. Jaime Flor

    Lol, good call… He, or she, must feel like a deer caught in the headlight's of flying saucer from another galaxy.

    I vote UFO, I think anyone who believes we are the only ones here in this endless universe, is pretty self absorbed, to think we are alone. The universe is endless. and we are probably considered prehistoric cave men when compared to anyone who has the means to travel to this planet, dimension, or time.

    I was in the Navy in 1983 to 1984. in the summer of 1984 we were on the USS Enterprise CVN-65 doing what they called a sounding tube watch. The sounding tube is the measure of the actual water level in the tanks to keep the ship level. No big deal yet when we went on to the bridge my boss saw something and it was pretty wild. "Quote" WTF IS THAT!!! as he pointed to the starboard side of the ship. me and the other HT on watch stopped dead and fell silent against the bulkhead while our LT was freaking out trying to get the signal man and wheel man to help him make a descision on what to do. The signal "radar" man told the LT.. AND i quote "Sir.. you need to relax".. the LT still freaking out (he was that good btw) sid to the radar man.. wtf are you trying to tell me damn it!! The helsman looked at the radar man and back at us then to our LT and said.. "Sir, please just calm down" The LT got lit and then the radar man said LOOK SIR.. Nothing is on radar.. then the helmsman told us the story he and the radar man got from the bIg Brass
    the radar man said to the LT if we scramble the pilots at 2am which is not a problem then all we will be doing is waking them up to chse something that will be gone in less than 5 minutes.
    The helmsman agreed. I wish i could tell you my LT's name but my partners name was Mark from New Mexico and my name is Gilbert Holland from california… Long story short the helm and radar men got the LT to chill and asked us all to just watch what was going to happen.. The UFO as it were was a bubble ish nothing about 500ft wide with colored windows which i personally think are the actual reactives from a nuke oven like when you put your face against the reactors window.. anyway. the dude told the LT and as confirmed by the other dude they were instructed by the USN they can either log alien ships or not. they then showed the logs dating way back to date and counted instances to the LT while this bubble shaped colored window craft buzzed us 1/4mile off bow 100 ft above water for a long period of time. basically? ya. everyone knows but what we do not know is why

  10. Buddy Casuals

    the "ship" tore ass afte rthat 5min so you know. it moved so fast there was no way to gauge ots potential nor its purpose. as a Seaman though? anything that crosses your bow is nothing short of a warning shot and that my friends is for real

    Check and see if your neighbor owns a drone – idiot.

    It is clearly an ir reflection from the deer's eyes. they are the same width apart and everything. the rest are just ir reflections…..

    Its probs a UFO, skeptics always don't want to believe the evidence that is shoved in their face. C'monnnnn

  14. Mike Debo de Boissiere

    Yea, im sure that if a visitor came here from millions of light years away, the only thing they'd want to do is,..ALWAYS… visit some wacky, hick, country town, in the middle of the night. You people are stupid as sh*t!!!!!! I am embarrassed of myself for not being clever enough to come up with a scam to rip you people off of money, like everyone else does. How's your Kentucky swampland sold by Eric Estrada from CHiPS working out?

    Mississippi huh? Hmmmm how about a Jeep…maybe a CJ5 jacked up on 31 inch tires with a 4-6 inch lift kit? 55watt H3 lights. What was it doing out there? In my day we use to call it 'Parking" with your girlfriend. Of course it could also have been some good ol' boys looking to jack a buck. Aliens? Nah, that would be my in-laws.

    Deer in the headlights? I have never heard that one before.

    Using a spotlight for deer not illegal using one while in possession of a weapon illegal. In most states.

  18. Matthew Kizutsuita Kyojin Carter

    It looks like a moisture refraction from humidity built up on the lens as it develops exposure of the deers yes.

  19. Matthew Kizutsuita Kyojin Carter

    On that same note to claim something is there when there is absolutely no evidence is pretty un-evolved in nature.
    Who knows if there is life out in the universe. It may be oozing life everywhere. But then again we may be the only ones (at this exact time.) We may never know. Its just like claiming there is a god… a heated debate that no one knows the answer to. But alas the burden of proof lies upon the evidence to show there are aliens. And as of this very moment there is nothing to prove any existence of extraterrestrial life.

    We have to prove something exists for it to be real. (I hope ET's are real. But I also hope they never come near our planet as well. )

  20. Matthew Kizutsuita Kyojin Carter

    Jaime Flor Looks like light refractions IMO. But I may be wrong. I def wouldnt call it alein though since there is nothing other than our imaginations that could say there is life outside of our planet. (But I may be wrong.)

  21. Matthew Kizutsuita Kyojin Carter

    What evidence. Science proves things if they are real through processes based upon skepticism. Without skepticism then there is no rational thought that can prevent people from being manipulated.
    I want to believe in ET's, but there is zero proof to hold up the case.

  22. Rebecca Jean Richards

    UFO's don't always show up in the country. These people aren't scamming anyone for money, they just have a curiosity they want to solve.

    Deer cams do need light to photograph. Infrared light is a light frequency…just not visible through our eyes. It easily reflects off of objects(deer eyes). You would think reporters would know that, working around cameras and all……

    It's a 4×4 pickup with a lift kit and headlights on the roof.

    I love how people try to debunk these sightings, but the reality is they are real. I live around military bases and saw a UFO that is beyond human comprehension. All I can compare it to is the movie "Abyss". It was like a navel ship size of a jellyfish in the sky. I believe this sighting and pity those who are blind to the reality of something outside our existence. BOY, do they have it coming to them.

    Good, I hope it printed twice for those who laugh it off. I live near the most high tech military bases in the world and they can't detect these UFO's.

  28. Jorge Benavides

    It is definitely a lens flare from something with two eyes or two lights because, first of all why is it directly in the middle unless the "UFO" knew it was going to pose directly for the camera.

  29. Clay Bryant

    Well,so much for flying my new drone at night with the lights on.I thought it was pretty neat with the lights and all but if this is going to happen………At least the deer have never been afraid of it.

    looks like a double exposure of the person setting up the trail camera. eyes ,nose mustache,mouth and a goatee…….

    then don't you think the deer needs to be LOOKING at the source of the light?

  32. Melle Eldridge

    well. the good news is… it was looking for intelligent life. it landed in mississippi.

    the bad news is… it was looking for intelligent life and landed in mississippi….

  33. Lexie Gillmore

    It is nothing more than the federal government spying on the deer to (1) make sure are not in this country illegally (2) to make sure the deer have signed up for obamacare and (3) to make sure the deer have paid their taxes so obamacare does not fall flat on its face.

  34. MsBee Carroll

    The things some folks will so to get attention! Jeez! Looks like spotlights on top of a vehicle to me! There! You got your attention! Have another drink!

  35. Linda Whisler

    I wonder if some of there neighbors are playing a trick on them. These people look to be honest people. I don't think UFO, I think there's an explanation and it's probably a mad hunter. They have 150 acres to hunt on.You have to be a member and pay fees and follow rules to hunt on this kind of land. Sounds like they made some hunting member mad., .

  36. Mark Slone

    I love the comments that it's a reflection of the deer eyes. Yes, because deer eyes shine like spot lights, and reflect on the lens even though the deer is looking in the opposite direction. SMH. And if it was a Jeep as other's have suggested, there would definitely be tracks left on the ground. Derp. Until I hear what a photography expert has to say, it is truly a mystery.

    im going out there tonight and pull my pants down in front of the camera. hope they enjoy it.

    No, the universe is not endless and anyone who thinks it is needs to do their homework. The universe does have borders and is ever expanding. There is intelligent life out there, we just have to find it. If anyone believes we are alone, you have to ask yourself several questions. How did the Egyptians get such precise measurements to construct the Pyramids? How did Stone Henge get built? These questions you have to ask yourself.

  39. Daro Weilburg

    IF…If there are beings capable of intergalactic travel. They would be light years ahead of us. What the heck would they want with this war mongering, disease infested, polluted cesspool of a planet? Let's see here: Science (guesses) 50 to 120 billion galaxies.. One star, if you put it where our sun is right now…it would envelope the earth. If you took a pinhead of the sun and placed it on the earth…you could not stand within 90 miles. Give it up UFO searchers…there is no proof that UFOs have ever visited here and there never will be. We are alone…because if any, I repeat any, civilization exists that could freely travel in the space continuum and came upon this cesspool…they would destroy it as a cancer.

  40. Daro Weilburg

    Randor Darkwing: Many have asked that same question. The answer is simple: The Israelites (slave labor) built all the pyramids for the Egyptians during the 400 years of enslavement. Even when the Israelites were in captivity they were blessed with abilities. Even today, they own most of the diamonds in the world because they stick together. If you took all the money in the world from the Jews they would have it back within ten years. That is why everybody hates the Jew and because of killing the Christ.

  41. Barbara McKenzie Quesnell

    you're assuming "UFO" means aliens from outer space – "unidentified" is just that – flying is obvious – object is a simple word…nothing eerie about any of that. so yes, it was an unidentified flying object… as soon as someone figures it out and identifies it, it loses its appeal. calm down, people.

    This appears to be amateur photograto create a UFO event". Skillfully done, but we all know by now, "the camera does lie". Where, for example are Heathrow's control tower's "heads ups" to the pilot? Commend the author/photographer for their computer graphics skills!

    As in straight at the camera? Is it not doing just that?

    Here is a trick guys. The curved lens flips reflected images when they are really close. Either flip your computer monitor upside down or screen shot and flip the picture. You can clearly make out the eyes, ears and nose.

    Due to the time-intensive nature of the business most publications publish first and then editors update the article later.

    To bad the ufo didnt take the people who planted the cameras for hunting friggen assholes…

    Actively looking for a comment by which to be offended is not exactly a sign of intelligence, in itself.

  53. Timothy Oldfield

    Some might be ready to wake up from ridicule of others; some not. I first saw 5 UFOs 40 years ago. Depending on how open you are to truth, this might be something interesting to read (Shared by Timothy Oldfield):


    FACT: From 1982 to 1985, large triangular and boomerang-shaped UFOs were reported over the Hudson Valley by over 7,000 credible witnesses, including police and officials at the Indian Point Nuclear Power Plant.

    FACT: In 1989 and 1990, large triangular and rectangular unidentified flying objects, one the size of an aircraft carrier, were reported over Belgium by over 2,000 witnesses, including police and military personnel.

    FACT: In 1997, multiple sightings of a mile long boomerang-shaped UFO were reported over the state of Arizona by over 10,000 witnesses, including police, military personnel and Republican Governor Fife Symington.

    We make no claims as to the nature or origin of these UFOs. However, those who have taken the time and effort to conduct serious, in-depth investigations into these reports know that these sightings are of real, physical crafts and are indisputable FACTS. Thousands of such sightings of physical crafts of unknown origin have been reported throughout the world for decades by credible witnesses, yet most who report such sightings are treated with ridicule, disbelief, scorn and even threats.

    In light of the facts, we who have witnessed such unexplained crafts no longer accept this cynical mindset as realistic or credible.

    Those of us who are witnesses to the UFO phenomenon know they exist for a fact. This is not an issue of speculation for such witnesses. However, we do not insist that non-witnesses must believe such objects exist, only that witnesses be treated with respect and that we deserve the same fairness and courtesy afforded to any individual or group who honestly expresses their point of view without fear of ridicule, punishment or persecution.

    Recent polls clearly demonstrate that more than 50% of Americans believe that UFOs are a real phenomenon that deserves legitimate recognition and serious study by open-minded, qualified scientists, rather than being summarily dismissed as misperceptions, fantasies, hoaxes or hallucinations by cynical, unqualified debunkers. Over 36 million Americans have seen a UFO.

    To put this statistic in political terms, these witnesses are also voters.

    Therefore, we urge all who agree with the spirit of this declaration to send copies of this letter to their
    representatives, public officials, the media, the police, the military, airline officials, NASA and all candidates running for any public office to assure them that our votes will go only to those who acknowledge the UFO phenomenon as real and deserving of serious scientific investigation and who publicly endorse fairness and respect toward any witness who reports a UFO.

    Christine Cooper What is your explanation? Do you think it is aliens? Ive never seen a single shred of evidence of extraterrestrial life. I wish there were aliens. I want them to exist. But like god they have no backing scientifically and require blind faith to believe. And Blind faith is a trait that leaves individuals susceptible to manipulation.

  55. Matthew Kizutsuita Kyojin Carter

    Randor Darkwing First off I love the concept of ancient astronaut theory. Buttttt it has no merit whatsoever. People think because they are told on a TV show that the buildings are so perfectly built that it must be true. But in reality they do hve flaws to them and many imperfections. Its not like Lego's pieced together. It is an amazing feat of humanity but it can be reconstructed today, contrary to crazy haired greek guys opinions. lol.

  56. Matthew Kizutsuita Kyojin Carter

    Randor Darkwing Oh… I forgot to mention… the universe is endless still. Just because the big bang theory shows a creation point and the expansion areas does not mean it is limited to that area that only holds galaxies and other things of the cosmos. There very well may be life out there…but as of today there is nothing to prove it so. The mathematical requirements for life to exist are ENORMOUS! At the present rate os calculations done by people farrrr smarter than myself, it is said that the universe would still require nearly 6 times its known size and number of planets in order o harbor a planet like earth. There may be other forms of intelligent life, but to have them exist at this exact timeframe in our universe is still tough. Even with its vastness of the hundreds of billions of stars I dont think we will ever find out the truth as a species. Planets, solar systems, galaxies are things that are born and die. The universe is sooo tough to live in long enough to make it to the level of required tech and intelligence is near impossible. But I truly hope I am wrong…. For we are all going to die and not exist anymore, and I think a great way of that happening is by aliens showing up on our doorstep. But like everything else I said…I may be wrong.

  57. Matthew Kizutsuita Kyojin Carter

    Rebecca Jean Richards A logical, or dare I say informed, person would have known from the beginning that there is no real mystery in this instance. The human mind is amazing. And when mixed in with it blind faith, it becomes easily manipulated.

    Shepherd Yerusalem The only thing I fear is snakes. Mainly just poisonous ones. lol. Im far from a boy. And like all UFO associated images and videos, they are too easily faked. The majority of them are faked poorly.
    but every now and then a good one pops up that takes a while to debunk. But there is still no evidence of ET's…none!
