I was lucky this time.
Just about 10 minutes ago, coming into Shelbyville via Hwy. 130, I spotted a four point buck standing on the side of the road.
I slammed on my brakes as it began to sprint across the road, but the damp highway caused me to keep sliding right into the poor beast.
However, there was no damage this time and the young fellow ran off.
As I posted before: according to the Pittsburg Kansas Morning Star, "the high season for car crashes with deer runs from October through December. Every year, those wrecks account for more than 150 human and nearly 1.5 million deer fatalities. "
So let's keep an eye out for these creatures before they ruin your day.
