    also, might be time to get a real bumper to minimize the damaged caused by the third deer you hit.

    I agree with 6shooter, buy 1 real bumper, then you can aim at the deer. Hell maybe try that, I try to run over my neighbors cat and haven't had any luck.

    Dude, I almost hit a deer last shift in the ambulance. Both my partner and I screamed bloody murder because, at the very least, I thought I would at least take out it's back end. It survived though... It was huuuuuuuuge. -rye

    I hit a deer with my '07 Camry XLE.
    $8K in damage.I fixed the car and dumped it.
    Somehow,the incident wasn't on a CarFax report a few months later.
    There's deer all over NJ.
    More development,less place for deer to live.This state has to do something about it.
    Lengthen the hunting season and raise the limit.It's ridiculous.

    Hit a deer with my gf's brand new 09 Vibe a few months ago. Did 8-9k in damage but insurance fixed it good as new. After that, someone rear-ended me on my motorcycle when I was stopped but it luckily did no damage. After that, her step father hit a deer. Then after that, a lady pulled out infront of me and totalled my car, which is how I got my Tacoma :). Been paranoid ever since. That all happened within a span of 2 months or so also.

    I almost hit a deer on my motorcycle. It was a smaller one. I was doing about 65 when he darted across the road. I could see him tuck in his rear just as I passed him. Any closer and I would have had skid marks on the side of the bike. Talk about an adreneline booster.

    Me and a friend of mine had moved up to PA a few years back and had no experiance driving in the snow. We were driving down the highway behind a van with a some what fair amount of distance between us. all of a sudden the largest cap of Ice that I have sen to this day popped off the top of that van and spun in the the air. Both me and my friend were screaming like girls!!!!!:eek: I was so afriad to do anything that might cause me to loose control that I just kept my foot on the gas and kept on driving. Luckly in crashed to the road just in time for me to run over it. My frind yelled at me afterwards saying I should have hit the breaks or swerved but I learned my lesson that day and kept better distance after that.
