    Yup. If only they'd moved the deer crossing sign.



    Christmas is cancelled. I killed Rudolph. :steamed:

    it'll be fine, just tell santa to pick up a couple of red led's from battery junction and shove em in prancer's snout. nobody will ever know the difference.

    p.s. you should have slammed on the brakes.

    Glad he/she/it didn't go through the windshield.
    Ruins your day for sure, but better than the deer's.

    Yeah, all things considered, it wasn't that bad. No way it was coming through the window... it was covered with a protective steel plate... my hood. Made stopping, um, interesting.


    I think a little duct tape and rubbing compound and it'll be as good as new!

    Sometimes they like to jump right before you nail them.. which really complicates things.:supergrin:

    What's weird is there was no airbag deployment (which I'm actually happy about), but doesn't it look like they should have?

    I hit the sucker at about 62mph.

    Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water...

    Sorry to hear about your accident. My coworker was showing me pictures yesterday of his brothers truck from this past Saturday night. He swerved to miss a deer and rolled his Chevy S10 after he put it into a ditch. Good thing he was okay.

    I thought of you right after it happened. :supergrin:


    I'm fine, not hurt. Yes it was a nice sized buck. Yes, deer are idiots.

    Funny thing: It happened in an area with no cell coverage. 3 people had stopped to help before I had time even check to see if the deer was still in the road. After cleaning things up a bit (plastic/glass bits and pieces... deer had disappeared) and getting my stuff together I walked maybe 30' before another dude stopped in a grey F150. Hey, I have a grey f150. His last name was the same as mine. And he was driving to work... in the same town, on the same street where I work... about 4 blocks away. It was strange!
