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.

Re: First early season montana deer

Reminds me of something I said several years ago. My wife and I were headed home, driving a mountain road about two a m. I was in the passenger seat attempting to sleep.

Hard braking brought me upright and wide awake. A herd of deer was streaming off a steep bank on the right effectively blocking the whole highway. My wife was struggling to slow us down in time. There was a very nice buck near the end of the line on the right. The kind of buck we all dream about hanging crosshairs on. As we skidded to the right I firmly directed my wife, "Don't hit the buck".

Re: First early season montana deer

My daughter had one run into her driver side door last year. Not too amazing except I don't know of anyone else that's killed one in town....well, with a vehicle anyway.
Driving to an Antelope hunt in Wyoming, I came around a dark corner when the headlights picked up a momma racoon and a half dozen babies. Their angle of travel and speed combined perfectly with mine, and I killed raccon with every tire on the truck and trailer, my partner behind me reported "no survivors".
