In which Mike gets hit in the butt by a deer

From Mike:

Today while crossing Jefferson Ave. @ the 23rd Street traffic circle, some crazy shit happened. I was out on foot putting up flyers for our Yard Sale on this Sunday.

As I was crossing Jeff. Ave. on the West side of the traffic circle (towards Union Market), I heard the sound of “hooves” on pavement. I looked up, and barreling flat out down 23rd *directly* towards me was a young doe (deer).

As I turned right, it then stared WIDE EYED at me, and turned to *its* left-right into me. I quickly spun back to my left. Its head still hit me firmly in my posterior (still sore). It then barreled off Southbound up 23rd towards E. Broad St….and points unknown.

The cook hanging out behind Union Market saw it run by, and two neighbors saw my “incident”. […]

This is EASILY the wackiest thing that’s happened to me in all my years “On The Hill”. Do what you will with this tale, as I have (sober/sane) witnesses…

Scott Elmquist from Style managed to get a shot of the elusive deer on Venable Street.

This guy ran out in front of my car last night on 22nd! Seemed so crazy I thought I must have been seeing things. Thanks for the confirmation!

Thanks for posting that John Boy. Maybe this whole thing has some crazy, mystical Indian meaning?? Getting hit in the ass kinda takes some of the “mystic” out of it though ??…

Apparently, one was partying in the breezeway/alley behind our house at 25th and Broad. Tree removal people reported the buck trying to jump through windows and leaving behind a furry mess.
On another note, is this the result of the city not having the funding to cut the grass? #churchhillwildlife

Judging from the fuzzy mass of antlers on this deers head I would say you got bucked.

Can we get these guys to graze at Jefferson Park? The grass there is getting a little wild.

You are most correct Jess. I mistakenly I’D the perp as a “Jane Doe” (snicker).

Ah, thanks for the update! My husband, a friend and I saw this buck running down the alley between 23rd and 22nd a few minutes before Michael Onsel got bucked. We saw Michael way down the block later, and I thought he was saying that the deer glanced off a car on Jefferson, not off his own rear end.

Dang! Just lately, we’ve been noticing some unusual stomping around and very suspicious plant gobbling in the raised beds in the Jefferson Ave community garden. This Bambi might be the culprit. Mikey, hope your bucked-butt feels better soon.
