Several nights a week I go for an after dinner ride in the adjacent semi-rural county. Always lots of critters around but seems like the deer have gotten more active lately. Much too early for the rut. Maybe 2 evenings ago I was on the two lane main state highway, just cruising about 60-62, and about 30-40 yards ahead of me a really beautiful large buck with a nice rack all covered in velvet came flying across the highway. Wasn't even a close call but...., could have been so different.
Glad yours was a "miss".
