Now is my chance to help us bikers by taking out a few of those pesky deer. Unfortunately, there are way more deer than hunters care to shoot. There has been a population explosion in the last few years and it's evident by all the carcasses that are seen on the roadside. A friend just got out of the hospital after hitting his second deer on his bike. My husband and I took a chance today by riding our bikes, knowing that the deer activity is beginning to increase. It may be our last long ride for a while. (Hope not.) I do say though, that I love to be out there hunting those animals. There's so much peace in the woods and fields. It helps me get through the winter months when we can't ride as much...... I am hoping to get a real monster this year. If not, well, there's always next year, with a lot of riding in between seasons.
