I only ride at night if I get caught out by accident. I do not like night riding.

I ride in the dark every morning on my way to work. Most of it is freeway riding so I'm more scared of other cars than deer.

I don't typically leave town at night, and when I do, I play it careful... I try to avoid two lane roads that have no shoulder and easement space to the side of them.

I do commute during the summer months, and that means riding in the dark in the morning (5:30 am) but most of that is on a 4-lane with large shoulders. I ride the inside lane so I have even more time/room to react if a deer comes on to the road from the shoulder. There was a rash of "chronic wasting disease" in Nebraska that cut the deer population by about 40% this year, so that helps my odds too...
