Oh, Deer

Tonight on the way home from work I had to brake quickly to avoid hitting a deer not even a quarter mile from work. I’m glad that I had the reflexes and brakes to stop in time. But it’s pretty freakin’ cool that there are wild deer running around near my workplace.

  1. Lucky you!

    That is pretty cool. One time I was driving over Parrett Mountain and a deer bolted out of the woods and then turned and started running alongside me. It then bolted back into the woods, and it happened so fast that I realized if it had decided to come left instead of right there would have been no avoiding hitting it.

  2. I once saw a deer leap over, and easily clear, an oncoming car. It was absolutely amazing. My guess is the driver was missing a seat cushion afterward. 😉
