Great clip!

There are a lot of deer running around the new place, not as many here. I only had a run-in with one, and I was on foot. I think he thought I was after his mate (shows you how smart deer are).

Moose, elk and deer are dumb but move fast in unexpected directions. Collusions with cars cause death to all involved. A real hazard in the northwest.

Ah Haaaa!!!

I always knew those critters were secretly communicating with our vehicles to make us veer of the road and flip them over.

Like they say, "Mother Nature's a ▀!tęΩ."

The middle of a W is well below the top. We have a V this time.

Cool video. Reminds me of the deer that I almost hit on the road leading to Camp Bullis yesterday. Glad my brakes worked well.
