I worked with a guy who hit a deer every year for 14 years in a row. It got to be comical. I have hit two. Many friends have had them run into the side of their vehicles.
A buddy of mine who lives on venison, put a huge pipe on the front of his truck, and rides around when it is not deer season and tries to run them down. Crazy guy, but I love him.
Deer are like people........sometimes they seem smart, but then sometimes they seem stupid.
I have shot many. Sometimes I am the smart one and sometimes they are smarter than me.
They have the advantage with sense of smell and sight.....plus when I am in a tree stand, they are usually awake....and I am usually asleep.......

Love Ron White. His timing is excellent.
I had a deer run parallel to me for about 100 yards one day. It was on the other side of a cattle fence and I slowed my speed to keep along side. Beautiful doe, I could see every muscle move as she ran. She started turning her head slightly toward me a few times. I got the feeling she was ready to jump the fence and cross the road so I backed off a bit on the gas. And she cleared the 4 foot fence in stride with no extra effort and made an immediate right turn and crossed about ten feet in front of me.
I will never forget seeing her eye as she watched my van and seemed to be judging just how fast she would need to run to make the jump. And outrun this old guy in a van.
It reminded me of the westerns where a cowboy races a train to make the crossing.
