With my car. What an awful experience that was. Deer are pretty baffling. If I didn't know better I would think that the deer was trying to commit suicide the way it dashed in front of my car. Poor deer was killed instantly the best I could tell, but at least that's better than suffering. My car is a bit jacked, but I think it's all cosmetic and luckily I wasn't hurt.

Can I send you my address for some venison?

Glad you're okay.  Hitting those things can be dangerous.

You have earned the right to mount its antlers on your hood. You need body work anyway, right?

Yeah, this was more like Bambi than a stag. Who knows what hitting one of those would do to your car.

Glad you're OK.

I mentioned in the "life is short" thread here about a well-liked woman who was the wife of one of my former editors dying from head injuries when her car collided with a deer one morning in October 2001 (possibly after bouncing off another car) in a rural area. It apparently crashed hooves-first through her windshield, causing severe head trauma. A couple years later someone died from a deer collision in a more urban area here in Virginia.

My 2nd worse car accident came in my '89 Civic when I collided with a deer one evening on a 2-lane road in October 1993, on my way to cover a county meeting as a reporter. It was only sheer luck the thing bounced "torso first" into my windshield (which held up and didn't even crack, thank god) in bloody fashion and flew off. I was in such shellshock and there seemed no place to pull over so I drove to the meeting, and spent a few minutes using paper towels to pull off broken gladd and mohair. The latter made it easier for my State Farm claims rep to confirm things.

About two years later, I drove off the road on a 4-lane median divided road to avoid a deer driving home late one night. I veered right towards the shoulder to avoid it, over corrected and veered into the gulley-like median, damaging the underside of my car, and then veered back towards the opposite shoulder where I finally stopped. I was just grateful there were no other cars (it was close to midnight).

A good samaritan woman drove out from a nearby house to check on me. But when I started muttering while trying to dig a flashlight out of my trunk (just frustrated I couldn't find it), she got scared and left me.  icon_razz Pre-cellphone eera, I hadda walk about a mile to a 7-Eleven to phone for a tow.

Just about 3 weeks ago, a few of us work commuters in the evening had to stop to let a virtual herd of deer (maybe 5) cross a road in an urban area. October-November is apparently one of the worst times.

A few years ago, while driving home at night, I was on a surface street making a turn uphill when out of nowhere a huge deer ran across the road in front of me. I hit the brakes and watched as the deer trotted off into a business park. Danger gone, I took my foot off the brakes as the deer passed and thought I hit a pot hole. 200 ft later I wondered if this was a pothole or not, I pulled over to take a look. Because it was so dark I had to walk back a little and saw something moving in the gutter. My heart sank as I saw a faun laying in the gutter. A car pulled over to ask if everything was okay and long story short this guy called 911 to see if there was help available. We reached a wildlife rescue place that said they would take the injured faun but as soon as we hung up the poor thing went into convulsions and coughed up blood then expired. I ended up leaving it there in the gutter and called the city to notify them about the deer. Yes, I killed Bambi.

When I was a kid and we lived in rural Utah (isn't all Utah rural) my dad ran head on into a bull once. Totaled out the station wagon and wasn't very good for the bull either.

I had a few close calls with deers when I was living in CT. One night was heading down this backroad when a "family" of about five or six deer walked in to the road blocking both lanes. I stopped and waited for them to go on their way. Then this car comes behind me and starts blaring its horn at me as sitting there waiting for them to move. The deer are not moving and I'm not running through them. But this person decided they were not going to wait. They zoomed around me and amazingly shot right past the deer that had made a small opening. I don't even know if the person in the car realized the deer were there. The deer eventually moved off the road and I went on my way.

A few weeks ago though when I was heading home on the train and happened to catch two deer running across one of the major roads. Then a third deer darted across and collided with a motorcyclist. I saw the motorcyclist get thrown off his bike and land in the road on his knees (ouch). The deer was just sprawled in the road after the impact. Didn't see anything else as the train was just going by and it all happened within 5 seconds. Was a bit shocking to see how quickly it happened. Nothing was in the paper about it so I assume the motorcyclist was ok but would imagine the deer likely died.

I'm sure they did, but most people are a-holes and think life only matters if it is a human life.  Why should they be 5 minutes late to watch their favorite sitcom when they could just run over a deer and get home in time??

Estimate came through, $2100, of which $300 I am on the hook for. I do wonder why the insurance company allows the same guy to do both the estimate and the repairs. Seems like you're asking them to pad the bill. I mean, the guy said that he saw hoof dents on the door. OK.

Nice thing is since the car is less than 2 years old I get all new Honda parts.

We have deer all over the freaking place around here. I have like 4-5 in my yard almost every day. So far since I was 17 I've hit 2 and been hit by 1. Oddly enough the 1 that hit me did the most damage. Ran right into my driver side door and rolled down the entire side of the car. Car only had like 250 miles on it at the time. frown I think the bill was like 3K. I only paid 500 bucks, but I hated the car after that.
