    As someone who writes estimates in a rural town on a daily basis, here's a reference of what a low speed small deer hit looks like on a regular un-protected SUV.

    Customer was going roughly 35-40mph and hit a medium sized doe.

    I'm trying to decipher the point of this post. OP hits a deer going obviously too fast (triple digits?).
    Airbags deploy and he can't open the front doors but swears all that is damaged is the bumper.
    Says the deer was obliterated but in pictures the animal is whole.
    I'm gonna say I don't trust any review that may be in this post. Sounds like the OP is a fisherman.

    Say bumper mounts and other structural bits are damaged.
