    Driving home from a little stop at the WalMart. Sun was impairing my vision because it was at the top of my windshield but in a place that the visor could not block it. There were dark trees on the right side of the road. All of a sudden there is a deer in front of me. Looked like a female, full size with no antlers. She sort of slid on the black top then looked at me like, "oh I may have made a bad decision". So I slam on the brakes. The WalMart bag in the front seat goes flying. My heart misses a few beats..... Then she darts on across to the other side and down the bank. It all happened so fast... whoooo. If I had been going faster, which on that road I usually am, I would have hit her. If I was not watching the road, I would have hit her... And I drive a really small car..... Okay, that's enough excitement for me today!

    Glad you're ok.

    I hit a deer in my new Nissan 2 thanksgivings ago... will never live that down

    Hit a buck in DH's new pickup about 2 months ago, killed on impact, but we can't find where he hit the truck. I guess that's the one I should drive.

    Glad you are ok and all but.... Why would a female have antler? Unless are they mutated in Kansas?!? I need to shoot me some of those type of deer!

    I came within a fraction of getting a deer, oops, hitting a deer two weeks ago. he dodged right, I dodged left and slammed breaks... I'm sure I should have found deer hair pinched under the edge of my hood, that's how close we were. nice looking 6 pointer. but the good news is now I have the phone number for the conservation department and the closest venison processing company on my cell phone... just in case...
    it's an area where I see deer just off the road in the swail or the fields 2 or 3 times a week... I'm careful through there now.

    glad you're ok!
