i clocked it in the head with my left shin, as I was making a right handed sweeper. My body and the bike were leaned away from the deer. It ran at me but also diagonally in my direction of travel. I had enough time to roll off the throttle but not enough to even touch the brakes before it hit me. Contact was right on the shin of my armored boot and extended above the boot too - about 3” below my knee cap. I felt like Mongo when he punched a horse and knocked it out cold. I stopped and other than some doe spittle on my jeans and a dull pain, there was no indication of what happened. I’m home now and the pain is gone and there is not even a bruise there. I’m lucky as hell! Charles.
