I have been riding for quite sometime, but a deer ran out in front and the inevitable happened. I think I could have avoided it but I fixated and crashed. Any advice on how to avoid something like this? @BertMacklinFBI

If you happen to see which way the deer was heading you can take a sharp swerve around the deers ass. Deers walk forward not backwards, so if you swerve in front of the deer (it's head) you could of killed it and you could of gotten seriously injured. Swerving behind the deers ass, it's not going to walk backwards, so you would of been able to ride behind it, and dodge it completely.
You crashing may make you a bit paranoid to hop on a bike again. The thing is, you really do need to get back on it and ride it again. I think the longer you leave yourself to be afraid of riding (if that incident has caused you a lot of trauma) the longer you will be absolutely paranoid and really afraid. Be cautious, be aware/alert. Stay safe.0
