The takeoff wasn't bad, but when he woke up.... I am not sure I want to admit what happened. Eek

Here is a big thing to consider when thinking about possible outcomes to this situation.  Are animals afraid of heights, or more specifically, is this particular ungulate afraid of heights?

Let me share a few things I have learned about helicopters.
 
1) Never allow anything other than air go through the rotor system.  No air, no fly!  No rotor, no fly!
 
2) Never allow anything other than air to go through the tail rotor.  No air or no rotor, helicopter spin real fast.
 
3) Rotors create massive amounts of downwash.  Some upwards of 200-300 mph in a hover.
 
4) Most test pilots are insane!
 
5) Military rotor systems are designed to take a 25mm round to the blade and keep flying.  You can also chop down good size trees with the main rotor and long as nothing hit the tail rotor.
 
6) Metal is slick and does not hold staps in place very well.
 
Now first thing, this deer wakes up about 100 ft off the ground.  Deer get very squirmy when waking up on a noisy, vibrating peice of realistate.  Once thrashing, please refer to #6.  Deer can jump very well, even on slick metal.  Please refer to #5 at this time.  Deer up, blender rotating.  Said deer is now thoroughly diced, cubed, and juiced!  See #3.  My current butchering project is now getting pulled back through the rotor system, and a high rate of speed.  Thankfully #1 and 2 did not happen.  Therefore I did not become #4 and have to explain to my captain how a helicopter can have the same aerodymanic characteristics of a forklift dropped out of a plane.  I did have to explain why my bird and gunners now had a red lumpy paint job.
 
I have also discover an area lacking on helicopters.  They do not have wiper fluid.  Blood and brains only smear.  I had to hover in a rainstorm for 3 hours to get all that off.
 
Moral of the story?  Fly a red helicopter to begin with!

'Rotors create massive amounts of downwash.  Some upwards of 200-300 mph in a hover.'
 
I was standing outside the hospital where I work one day when a Medevac Huey came in a bit too low and slow over a parking lot.  The trunks of most of the cars flew open and everything in was blown out, including a couple of spare tiresShocked.  The downwash on the cars was enough to push trunk lids down so the locks could release (try pushing that hard on one with a few of your friends). No one was hurt but it could have been very bad.  Now that's downwash.Vato
