In fact, a dice roll might even be too generous of odds because, when it comes to hitting a deer in Montana, the odds are pretty much stacked against you.
Live and drive in Montana long enough and you or someone you know will hit a deer, it's a practically a rite of passage.
I have a handful of friends that have collided with a deer, while I've been the lucky one who hasn't, knock on wood.
I've come close, and in fact I did what you weren't supposed to do. I swerved to avoid hitting the deer, which could have ended up an even worse outcome than hitting said deer.
It's Not Just Deer You Need To Worry About In Montana.
Whenever you are leaving to travel anywhere in Montana, people in your life will inevitably say to you,
