With my ol Buick, wasn't terrible, but my front ends a little hurt. Bad time to happen, I really don't need to be spending money right now, oh well I guess. Anyone have any war stories to share about hitting bambi to make me feel better?

Here you go.....Oh, and that's when we beat Pittsburgh at home last year. And it also gave us the reason and resources to upgrade to the RV.

I hit one back in 95. I was still living in KC.

I was on my way back home from visiting a friend in Drexel. It was a big buck. I hit him square going about 50. Had to replace the entire front clip.

I autopoached a deer in a '68 Chevy van one time ... the blunt nosed van with the engine between the front seats. Popped the tape right out of my cassette player. A friend of mine said he would take the deer so we loaded him up in the back and took him to his house.

Haven't had the opportunity personally, but I've been told a story about a woman who hit one around here. The deer was in mid-leap and hit the windshield. The woman was not injured by the collision at all, but the deer then proceeded to kick her to death. :eek:

Kansas averages about 10,000 car/deer accidents per year.
That's a lot of claims. Sumbitches are a real costly animal.

I seriously have lost count of how many deer I have hit, with the majority (99%) when I lived in Missouri.
I do know I hit deer 6 different times when I worked as a Medic. Thank God those Ambulances were built tough. LOL

You know, with all the road miles I have put on over the years, I have never hit one. The odds of that, are about like plugging into Pamela Anderson without a hat and coming out of it disease free.

A few years ago, I was following a buddy of mine along the Montana Highline in the middle of the day, between Malta and Havre and I got one hell of a free show. Off to the right, I could see three deer running across a field and getting ready to jump a fence, to cross the road. I slowed down, my buddy didn't. Two of the deer stopped just before entering the road, but one kept running. I watched him put on the burst and try to beat this guys van. The crazy thing ran right into the right side of the van, not the front, but the side. :eek: The deer went down like a sack of bricks at first, but got up and wondered off after about 30 seconds. The van on the other hand, didn't come out of the encounter as well. It smashed in the entire side of the right front door.

I told him, that's what you get for being a guy and driving a blue minivan, even the deer don't have any respect for you. :D

There's a reason most farmers around here have grill guards on the front of their pickups. That $400-500 investment can save thousands down the line.

My wife and buddy carpool 40 miles to the next town over every day. My buddy tells me this story that these deer that are trying to run across the road while they're following a semi. He tells me 3 make it, one gets blasted. But he said when the 3rd one hit the semi, it slid right up the curved fenders and gets chucked 30 feet straight up in the air.

He thought it was wildly hilarious to see a deer chucked 30 feet in the air.

We had a kid working for us. He was really pretty industrious. Anyway, he was on the way home from work and blasted this deer with his piece of shit pickup. He thought there was a chance his dad would be pissed that he wrecked the pickup. So he tied a chain on the son of a bitching animal and drug it home.

I would have liked to see it. I'm sure the carcass was bouncing through ditches, off signs and culverts, and probably damn near skinned the thing on the sand road.

Anyway, the kid got some satisfaction through retribution for the kamikaze.

Back in my trucking career, I had just fueled up in OH, headding for TX over weight on a weekend.
Was running around the KY outbound scales on I-75 on a back road, (DOT had been spotty all weekend setting up with no notice catching guys just like me sneaking around over loaded.) when Bambi descided to come look real close at the undercarrige of my Freightliner.
Lost about $300.00 worth of fuel when he/she ripped off my cross over line between fuel tanks, not to mention a $1500 grill in the process.

In 94 (I think) and on my way back from Lawrence on 24 hwy I hit a deer. It was a large buck with a beautiful rack, which is all that made contact with my car. It knocked out my left headlight and my left side mirror.

I pulled over and my buddy and I ran back to see the body on the road. I must've just knocked the thing out cold cause it got back up a little dazed and wobbly then bolted into the woods.

I considered both the deer and I lucky. If I hit it full on I'm sure it would have gone through my windshield killing it and probably me with also.

I can still recall the sound of his antlers making contact with my car, creepy.

I bet you are incorrect. The insurance companies want to take premiums in and not pay out claims. Paying out for fucking deer is expensive.

I hit one about two weeks ago. Early morning, dark, thing just jumped right in front of me. Startled the shit out of me. Didn't much hurt the deer as it ran off. It cracked my bumper, broke my headlight, and dented my hood a little. Not too bad. Old car so I am going to leave it as is until I get something newer.

I hit one once on my way home from the Chiefs/Patriots game. What also sucked is I got a speeding ticket on the way up there that day... Still a good day though, we sacked Brady like 7 times and I think he threw 5 picks. 3 to Greg Wesley. If I remember right.

So that got me thinking about Buffalo Springfield which made me think about Neil Young which made me want to watch some Neil Young You Tube videos which made me decide that I should own Neil Young Live at Massey Hall which made me order it from Amazon. So in a roundabout way I'd say you owe me $18.86.
