Geez. Why wouldn't you stop and take stock. Check yourself and your bike over?

I've hit a Rottweiller once in the 80's on my GS 1000L just got the weight off the front end and gassed it. Went right over the dog he ran off and i rode off. But a cow would be a different story...

That guy that got decked by the deer is a Boss. That was one of hte most badass things I have seen in awhile.

Get body slammed by a deer in the face? No biggie. Ill just get back up and start riding 3 seconds later.

Missouri wants to stock Elk, sure hope not. Worse than deer, they will walk right in front of you and stop. Like hitting a cow, I guess.
My old commute had me regularly riding through herds of elk that were quite satisfied to remain on the road. I learned to give them a wide berth.

My closest call vis-a-vis wildlife was when I confused a turkey vulture for a raven (the latter always get out of the way in time). The next thing I knew I had a very large bird within an inch of my chest at a relatively high speed.

I had a turkey vulture fly off the left side an AZ dirt road, across towards me. Ducked to miss it. Startled the 'crap' out of me!
