I figured it happened in PA. We get deer on the trails all the time. Especially on closed trails with no snow on them. I watched a guy in our NASTAR course, probably 10 years ago, come about a foot from intersecting a deer while going full-out in the gates. Coulda been ugly. We usually get whole families of deer on the trails. A couple years ago, while skiing across a connector trail (very flat but narrow), another instructor came within about 5 feet of a family of 12 deer that crossed the trail. We even had an albino deer for years. From what I hear, that one is gone, but there's another (younger) albino out there now.
