Do you really think a helmet would have saved him? I doubt it! gotta watch it riding right now with the crops coming off early and deer have fewer places to hide.


You said it! This is a tragic reminder the deer are going nuts right now, running all over the place. Everyone needs to be careful on the roads especially at dusk and dawn.
