Im sure we have all had a close call with deer crossing the road in front of our cars. Some luckier than others. Last year I had a real close experience. I was on my way home from work on my motorcycle and was just about to Long Valley on one of the back roads. There is a farm on the left and corn fields to the right. I saw a doe crossing the road in front of me comming out of the corn field. I slowed down to watch because it was right around rut time so I figured she maybe followed. I was right there was a big buck 10 point on her trail. He was just fixed on the doe. By this time I was coasting, I reved the engine so that the buck might change direction away form me. Instead he came right at me, I turned to the left and gunned it. I braced for the broad side hit but I must have just been lucky. The outside of his right antler brushed my lower back, I don't know how he missed me. If I had someone on the back of the bike they would have been impaled and thrown from the bike. About 20 feet from that incident I look to my left and there was a 6 pointer heading from the farm down to the road. I took off and went around the corner. I pulled over for a few minutes to catch my breath and composure. That is the closest I've ever come to being hit. Now going thru that farm field I spend all the time looking left and right.
