I read a story concerning an incident in our local paper. It appears
a 58 year old man had a family of deer run out in front of him, and
despite efforts to avoid them, the man hit a large buck.
The buck flipped in the air over the cab of the truck and landed in
the truck bed. The buck then righted itself and attempted to come in
the cab through the rear window of the pickup. the story stated the
buck was attempting to gore the driver and bit at him.
The driver drove into a ditch and bailed, as the deer had it's head and one shoulder inside the cab,and was trying to get completly in.
the state police were notified by a passing motorist, and arrived
and shot the buck,as it was discovered it had a broken rear leg.
the driver was shook up,but uninjured.

pieces in the older Outdoor Lifes or was it Field & Stream? Remember those? Not sure if they have it anymore as I really don't care for the layout of the magazine anymore so I don't even look at the magazine anymore.
Recently I had a small buck (small tracks) with an attitude coming on my property at night and biting brances off of a very small spruce and tearing up the groung around it. The dog and I took a wizz in his scrape and he seems to have backed off. LOL
I have deer all over my property at night but you'll never see them in the daytime.
I like the part about how it "bit at him" the best. Sheesh!
This time of year I have more scrapes in the yard from bucks visiting my does thru the fence, than my buddies are seeing near their stands! Once in awhile youll see a wild buck fighting one of mine thru the fence too.
It was Outdoor Life and the STILL run those stories. You gotta broaden your horizons and stop reading just fishy books. LOL
They are also recreating those articles now on the OLN channel. Some
of them are pretty good.
