I have pictures printing with Green deer, Yellow people, etc. I shoot in RAW and JPEG. I have tried to post edit the raw, and nothing helps. Any advice?

Put up one of the green deer and the yellow people so we can have a look at what you're talking about. Maybe just a white balance problem???

Everything is affected by colours bouncing from the surroundings.

Throwing a green colour on a white wall, that white wall is becoming
a greens light source for everything that has a lesser luminance.

Possibly, a trick could be to set the WB in camera to AUTO WB and,
eventually, pick a reference value with a neutral grey card.

I checked the AWB. It is set there.

From what I've read if a leaf can't absorb all the light it will reflect some of it (onto the deer in this case) but if you don't like it you can always reduce the green with a slider, that is if you have the software to do it. I don't know why people would be yellow, though.
