In the opening scene in a new novel I am working on, there is a hunter who is trying to kill a deer. He is going be using a throwing axe (Wait...What? No spear? No Bow? i know but it's his preferred weapon...He's an orc!) to kill it so he has to be closer because he's not using a bow. So what would be the minimum distance you think he could be at without the deer detecting him?
And is it spelled ax or axe because when I type, "axe" the spellcheck says it's wrong.
