I saw the first one below today on Twitter, and it got me to thinking about all the huge road-kills I’ve seen and posted on BIG DEER over the years. What a shame these magnificent animals had to die this way, unceremoniously whacked by a car or truck. I’m sure hunters had most if not all of the bucks on camera:

I’ve often wondered how it is that they can avoid getting arrowed, or killed by hunters; but run out in front of speeding vehicles to their demise. Apparently they don’t expect danger from vehicles. I suppose it makes sense. My farmer friends often say that the combines (while harvesting beans, corn, or possibly wheat in the summer) don’t bother the deer. But, the moment it stops…and the door swings open…those deer are gone!!
