Sometimes they just come out of nowhere. I had 2 encounters with young deer on the BRP about 2+ weeks ago, just north of Boone. My mistake. I left out for a four day ride and kept going to get to Boone to stop for the night, should've just stayed in Mt Airy. The reason I didn't leave til near lunch was my oldest was in his last ROTC Parade calling cadence, knew I couldn't miss that & not a mistake! As I came out of a curve near Jefferies, saw one dart in front and cross the road. I immediately slowed down real fast, looked to the right, yep saw 2 more. At that point I was at a very slow speed until I got away from them. Later on it happened again right in front of the entrance Doughton Park. I was a lot more attentive and even more cautious till Boone. Deer are definitely a threat especially this time of year.
