Actually, even if there was only one deer that was probably the best route, or we'd be reading a "flipped the van" story. When you drive a lifted rig swerving is often not the best course of action, and not swerving is something you should mentally prepare for as much as possible.
Glad you're all right.
Actually, my buddy and his van had avoided a sleeping horse on the road in the middle of the night. Apparently it got lost and decided to just sleep standing, right on the road.
Hitting a horse would be a different story since it stands a bit taller and a bit more heavier. Hopefully his warning to CHP about the horse was in time for the next poor guy on that same road.
He said he saw nothing till the last few seconds, he could do nothing but slightly turn to avoid it, making sure not to swerve to violently and bearly missed the horse hind quarters..
This happened near Warner Springs, S2 near Anza Borrego...
