    Yeah, that happens a LOT here in Branson. If you're getting away with only $100 damage, you're gettin' off cheap. Hit one last year and my hood is still messed up. Put some deer whistles on and I haven't hit one since, but is that 'cuz they work...? :confused:
  3. Wow. is the deer ok? Sorry to hear tho...
  4. We hit a deer a few months back. Smashed the front bumper, and dented the passenger side door.
  5. Never hit a deer, but I knew a guy who was driving an old metal van from the 80s (you know, like that old Mr. T GMC van) and he completely crushed a deer...zero damage done to his car, except a slightly dented grill and the obvious blood stains all over the front. Pretty insane.

    My brother was driving a small ford escort wagonbehind a huge P/U which nailed a deer at about 80 mph. The P/U had an after market bumper and sustained little damage, ---but both the cars were drenched in deer guts. He sent me a cell phone pic, but that was a hard drive ago. I'll ask him if he still has one.
  7. I was getting off an exit on rte. 84 and a deer ran out in front ahead of me, and then started trying to run alongside me all spooked...only a touch too slow...and he was too much into the middle of the road.

    Now, I was with the Wife and kids, and didn't want to endanger anyone, yet I obviously didn't want to smash the deer with my Cherokee, and I was jacking on the brakes to the point of locking so I started pumping them to keep control... and was still catching up too fast...I ended up trying to do that police car maneuver where you swerve slightly and tap the ass end out of the way...well lemmie tell ya, it worked like a charm, but I was completely in white-knuckle disbelief the whole time...

    suck suck suck suck suck! but relief too. And the kids didn't have to see any gore. Thing that sucked is the deer didn't stop after, and I'm sure tried to make a break across the highway... I didn't look back.

    "I hit a deer in a van. Going 55 MPH, with the lights on and the horn blowin'. My, thats an elusive creature. If you are ever having problems hitting a deer, its because your bullets are too fast. Just slow it down tt 55 mph, throw a horn and headlights on it, and he'll jump right in front of it!" - Ron White

    Rumzini, as the amount of deer hunters decreases, in Mi. it's down 20% from ten years ago, and the amount of land available to hunt decreases this will become a greater problem. I suggest you get a Hummer with the big grate bumpers. Also if your gonna hit one, kill it, they'll let you keep the meat, um, um, good. I have a friend whos a county cop, he got three deer last year after the person envolved in the car/deer collision didnt want the meat! One other disadvantage of being a vegaterian is after you hit a deer you have nothing to show for it. I covered the state of MI. north of I-96 for two years in sales, in the spring it was like dodgeball in the evening going down the road at 45 mph, it's amazing I didn't hit one.

    They are all over the road where I live.

    5 years ago there were NO deer ( it is an island). Now there
    are 500 and DEM wants to hunt. Bambi Lovers International
    is now fighting to let Bambi starve to death or get run over.

    One got hit by a car and died in my mulched flower beds.
    Guess who got the call from home to deal with it. Now we
    are getting coyotes and bears. This nature thing is getting
    way out of hand. I am putting one of the "roo" bars on my
    car and driving to kill, Kill, KILL!!!! KILLLLLLLLLLLLLL !!!!!!!!!!
