Heads up - lot of deer crossing the roads
Looked like a killing field driving along I-97 towards Annapolis. I saw 8 dead deer in about 10 miles and had to watch traffic more then the shoulder.
Not much more exciting when trailering then to have 3-4 deer come across the road. Swerve to avoid them and trailer will try to jack knife - just to add to the fun.
The stretch of Rt. 4 heading to Solomons has a lot as well.
IMHO - worst is the road along the bay heading to Breezy Point. Some spots the road sits down in between the woods on either side.
Few years ago - a deer jumped across and was about windshield level to my truck. Missed by inches. That was scary enough but then two more went sailing behind the boat. Honestly thought one landed in the cockpit.
Tough to avoid them as often this time of year 4-5 does will dart out when chased by a buck.
The buck has one thing on his mind - seen them lower their heads and slam into a car.
Next few weeks will be prime time so keep eyes open - especially if no other vehicles are ahead of you.
What could be more mundane than dying of old age or of natural causes when there is death by misadventure to be pursued ? Skip
