Anyone here ever hit a deer?

My wife hit a big one about a year ago with the minivan- $5k in damage, almost totaled the vehicle. Fixed it, and then I hit another deer with the same van 4 months later. Totaled this time.

Followed a car home the other night- a deer ran out in front of that car. He slammed on the brakes to avoid hitting it, and I came within 6" from rear-ending him as a result. There have been a few other close calls as well.

I'm hearing that this is getting epidemic nowadays. Anyone else have a deer meets car story?

I hit one a couple of years back with my truck. It pretty much destroyed the entire left side of my bumper. I had to physically pull my bumper out of my wheel well which took the brunt of the impact. The drivers side light was also impacted. Other than that, the truck was fine.

Deers are right up there with squirrels when it comes to smarts. I hate them!

They are similar to Canadian Geese, over protected.

To answer your op question, I did hit a deer with a brand new 85 old cutlass supreme on my way to a sales meeting in KC one morning.

12 point buck, hit him right in the ass over by Towanda, Kansas. I was extremely fortunate that it didn't come through the windshield. I was about 20 minutes late to the meeting with deer skin hanging off the fender, and the headlight hanging down by the wires.

Most of the delay is due to a Kansas law of me being required to dispose of the deer.

I think it was about 4k in damage at that time.

I once hit two baby deer at the same time. They were walking along on separate sides of the road, and both converged into the middle of the road at the same time. I hit them and they flew into ditches on alternate sides of the road. It was crazy.

Best deer story

Go to YouTube and write Joe and the Bambulance. Best hitting a deer story you'll ever hear. It's a real 911 call.

I've hit plenty. Some with an arrow, and some with a 130 grain 270 bullet.

Heh. That reminds me. My wife commutes to the next town over every day. She used to commute with a buddy of mine that worked over there too.

Anyway, they show up after work one night both just laughing hilariously. I knew it had to be pretty funny if it got my buddy riled up like that. Normally he's stone cold.

Anyway, the story I got was they were following this Peterbilt truck, with the huge fenders up front. Anyway, as they're following this truck, he stomps the brakes, hits the jake, and tries to get her shut down. A second later a deer hits these big sweeping fenders and it's like a goddamn motorcross ramp. My buddy swears the deer went 50 feet in the air and landed in the ditch somewhere.

I've hit quite a few and missed elk/moose/bear/buffalo/antelope by inches. I could'nt even count the number of gophers/rabbits/racoons I've hit.

Hit one this year in my truck, young one, dead instantly, 1900 in damages.

Truck fixed.
Next night hit a giant buck, stopped enough to glance him. Luckily no damage, seen at least.

I would of avoided the first accident but had cars on both sides of me and could only brake.

The truckers around here don't even slow down for deer. You can tell when they get a particularly good shot on one because it look like the deer exploded all over the road.

My friend and I were driving on K10 at two in the morning. We were bone dry sober, but were rocking out. A particularly favorite band of ours was in the throes of a spectacular guitar solo. (I believe it was Alice in Chains or Blind Melon - don't laugh, their stuff is NOTHING like 'no rain.' They were a spinoff from Guns & Roses, essentially, and had some kick ass music.)

As we're belting out the last phrases of the chorus, top of our lungs, we look at each other for the sustained note. Then my friend checks back in on the road.

He screams.
I look.
I scream.
I swear the deer screamed.

The ****ing thing EXPLODES on impact like it was a watermelon dropped on the sidewalk from a penthouse apartment. Its head POPS off its body, rolls up the hood, over the windshield and over the top of the car.

We hit the brakes, pull over, and get out. We circle around to check the front of the car.

A wonderful spray of blood has turned his white hood to red. Long hairs are impaled into the paint job. We'd been driving for awhile, and tiny bits of flesh sizzled over the hot engine. My friend turns to me and just says:

"Fatality."

There was zero damage to the car. Zero damage to us.

The deer was ****ed.
