    Narrowly missed a turkey yesterday while bombing doubletrack downhill. It flew out of the brush right in front of me.
    No moss...

    Ever hit a deer (or other large animal) while riding?

    I also just missed a turkey last week. It ran across narrow singletrack right in front of me. A friend of mine had a avoid a whole brood a few days before that.

    Where do you live? I'm in the White Mountains in NH and there has been a HUGE resurgence of turkeys in the last decade. They are everywhere. I see them all the time on rides, in my yard, on the side of the road, in the road. Last weekend I was out doing some errands and had to stop while a gaggle of probably 50 of them crossed the road.

    I've never been hit or hit anything on the trail yet. I have come close but not too close. There are a ton of turkeys up here in northern California. I had a pack of them run along either side of me for a few hundred yards in Bidwell park once.

    Here are some turkeys I came across at the entrance to Shasta Dam.

    I hit a brown bear with my bike, but it's only because I threw it a him (her?). Then we both ran in opposite directions.

    I once hit a cow and been close to hit more a lot of other times, there are a lot of cows around here. I've chased a few rabbits, squirrels and a couple of chickens.
