Oh deer..

Here's a quick video of me hitting my second deer! https://youtu.be/oviyUAVP43w. Lil f*cker jumped out of nowhere just like last time. Any else ever hit one or another animal? Share your story

Thanks! Here's a couple screen shots. You can see where I hit it with my front tire and the hair flies. Scalped her ass, lol. My buddy behind me said it looked like I punted it like a football

I have two for you gents,

Going down a residential area, 25 yards in front of me goin about 20mph i saw two cats in a brawl. Keeping my pace i intended to just cruise on by, when on of them bolted and its neck met my front tire, and rear tire as well.

I kept my arms lose and got over the little guy without too much drama, checked my rearview to see him laid out in the road.

I busted a U-turn to go see if i could return him to the owner and low and behold the cat was already gone and no where to be in sight. I still wonder if he sees everything vertical these days.

And then,

Last week in a residential neighborhood, a different one from before, out of f&!$ing nowhere a hawk dive bombs, to the ground, with a pigeon in its claws, and starts to take off.

When it took off, trajectory dictated the its body was gunna hit my helmet square on the shield. So I grabbed the brakes and gave a 'melodious' honk and wouldn't you guess it, that hawk dropped the already dead pigeon right onto my lap and took of. A family of four on their front lawn looked shocked, just as i was. Once in a life time shot!

Nice save on the deer scalping.

I've hit a turkey buzzard somewhere around 100 MPH. SOB hit me in the right shoulder. Heard a bunch of bones break. Thought it was my collarbone, but it turns out it was his bones breaking. Bastard.

Hit a groundhog somewhere around 70 MPH. Rear wheel tossed it in the air, and it hit my buddy behind me dead in the center of his chest. Knocked the wind out of him. Haha.
