It turns out Michigan drivers aren’t the only ones who have to worry about deer collisions.

Dave Osborn of Kalamazoo and his friend were out for a night snowmobile ride Saturday when a young deer decided to cross into the path just as Osborn was passing.

His GoPro helmet camera was rolling.

“During a Night Ride near Amasa in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan, a small deer shot out in front of me and there was nothing I could do,” Osborn wrote on YouTube.

“I’ve seen the video 20 times, and every time I jump,” Osborn told MLive, noting he was going about 20 miles per hour on the trail.

See if you don’t bite your nails watching the footage:

Osborn told MLive that though the animal was “clobbered,” it was able to get off and run into the woods. His snowmobile only has a bit of cosmetic damage. And as for everyone else?

“I think everybody is getting entertainment value out of it, except for the deer,” he told MLive.
