They reduced his pain meds and it put him in stress, so they went back to original. The good news was that they could see that he has good control and motion of extremities.

They reduced his Oxy from the 35% to 30% and that put him in stress too, so back to 35%. Zak finally sees that Craig will be in the hospital for at least a week and probably two.

He still can't communicate much of anything.

I'm concerned and Hope he has a prompt recovery. When riding I'm always looking out for other drivers. It's scary to think that a dear could cause such an injuries.

I like motorcycles, but I would think twice before going to ride one in an area with lots of wildlife.

Then that would pretty much limit one to city riding... That might be fun for only so long and there are more hazards there. (during all hours)

His accident happened in broad daylight around noon. One usually would not expect most wildlife to be moving around then. Most often when deer are seen during daylight hours, they are far enough away to not pose a collision threat.

Wildlife is just about everywhere. Granted, the larger animals are usually further away from developed areas. Riding during daylight hours poses the lower risk to encountering wildlife almost everywhere. And riders that commute through the more rural areas between the more developed areas with any regularity are aware of that.

So, I would say it is safer to ride between towns in the daylight hours than in city/urban areas during any hour.

I know two people who struck dear with their automobiles.The dear penetrated the laminated safety glass windshields in both cases,and while the drivers weren't struck by the animal directly,they were driving blind,lost control,and totaled the cars.
No guarantees when we turn the key!

There was a video I commented on recently someplace where I said something to the effect of: The most dangerous and deadly animal to people in the US (other than other humans) is not mountain lions, bears, sharks, snakes or swarms of stinging insects... it is deer. More people are injured or killed as a result of some interaction with deer than with any other wildlife. Deer hunting accidents are only a very, very small portion of that. Vehicles make up the bulk of incidents involving deer. It is often because of loss of control of the vehicle from striking deer or trying to avoid hitting the deer. A long time ago, I almost lost control of a Helix I had at the time from running over the blood and guts that were still on the road after a recent deer/vehicle collision. Scary and deadly dangerous things those deer are for us riders.
