Re: First early season montana deer
Glad you are OK. After the first time we drove through NE WY and southern MT after dark, we tried to time it so we didn't do that again. Those dang mule deer seem to LOVE hanging out on the highways after dark.
No deer story beats my college buddy who was in a turboprop taking off on a relatively remote commercial airstrip at dawn. Six deer ran across the runway, they got four of them with the right prop. One minute he was looking out at the snow, the next half the windows on the right side of the plane were red. Barely avoided over-shooting the runway and crashing, making CNN is usually not a good thing.
