This was a little lone deer who was stopped looking around probably for his/her mama who had probably already darted across ahead of her little one. I stopped to watch and make sure he/she got safely across before another vehicle came upon him/her.
As I inched along he/she walked parallel to the road until I tooted my horn in sequence. That did the trick and he quickly darted across and jumped into the forest.
I just hope his/her mama waited for her little one to find her.
