Living in Montana my entire life, I can't count how many times I have ALMOST hit a deer on the highway. I can count, on one hand, how many I HAVE actually hit. But, only twice, have I almost taken out a nearly 600lb elk. That is a little bit more dangerous, than a scrawny little deer. Dashcam footage has recently surfaced, online showing Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Dave Gleich colliding with an elk near Great Falls.
