Gotta love the way the deer takes it in his stride and is literally jumping the fence mid collision. Despite all the tips about staying alert there was nothing the rider could do about that. Glad he wasn't seriously hurt, just a few scrapes and bruises I guess.
That had to hurt! A deer ran into the side of my car over a year ago. Good thing I was driving really slow when it happened or my front passenger side would have sustained even worse damage than what it did.
The collision is one thing, but what really bugs me is when you encounter others on a ride and they don't say hello. That deer totally snubbed those riders, and there's no excuse for that. Then he shows off by clearing the fence and covering another mile or so before the rider even gets back on his bike. I think I heard him say "*****!" as he ran off.
