Have you ever hit a deer with your car?

I hate this season out here. I hit a deer one year and it totalled out my car! Had meat for three months lol. But every year now I'm super paranoid when I drive.

  • Rats with hooves. That's what Louis CK calls them anyway.

  • It has gotten to the point that the last time I hit a deer, I called my DH and told him and we just laughed about it. There is not much you can do about it if you live in a high deer populated area. I think that with one van I had hit 3 different deer (different times). One time a deer literally jumped over a guard rail into my van ($4000 damage on that one).
    DH worked with someone who would just call the insurance man once a year to have the damage from deer hits taken care of.

  • We have hit 5 deer so far.f I actually hit two at one time once. It isn't a fun experience and it is very expensive to fix. But out here in the open country, we see it alot.

  • Land Carp! HAHAHA I have to tell that one to my husband..Seriously though, I am always scared to death one is going to run in front of my car at night and I am going to hit it and get hurt. Not the deer getting hurt, but me or my family.

  • My mother just hit a dear 2 days ago. Her mirror on the passenger side broke off. Hitting a dear is like hitting body, it's so scary/

  • It's crazy! The one I hit ran across the road, into the ditch, she was completly off the road out of site and she shot right back out in front of my car. Hit her in mid air!!! 150lb doe! My whole passenger sidewas smashed and the baby slept through all of it.
