Yes, that was me! It was not a super close encounter, but if I had not seen the deer running toward the runway and started braking immediately, it could have been a lot closer.

What's funny is that later that evening I was landing at dusk back at the home airport and a coyote trotted across the runway when I was on very short final. It was like an Animal Planet show that day!
