Arrow Noise in Flight

I have often heard the saying in the deer woods "the deer jumped the string" in regards to deer ducking when the shot is fired. For years I could not understand how the deer could react so fast at the sound of the string being fired. So I set out to conduct an experiment. 

I was shooting at 50 yards with my Prime One STX set at 60 pounds. I am also shooting GoldTip Kinetic Platinum shafts with 100 grain field tips. I have the camera set up at 25 yards to see the arrow flying and to grab the sound of the arrow in flight. As you will hear, the arrow is making a lot of noise in flight. This alone tells me that the deer are not jumping the string, rather they are jumping the arrow.
