Have you ever hit a deer?

I haven't but it's one of my fears.  I drive on a long stretch of wooded highway every morning around 6am, and just barely missed hitting a deer this morning.   I see so many deers on this road and know several people who've hit one at least once in their life.  One day I just know I'm going to hit one!

If you've ever hit one, how badly did it damage your car?  What time of day did it happen?  When it happens, do you call the police or highway patrol or who (assuming no injuries and no other cars involved)?

I haven't, but I have been in the car when the driver hit one. It wasn't bad, but we were in a huge blazer. 

Unoriginal.

Always at night

Varying degrees of damage from nothing to completely totaled.

My BIL I think has hit 3. None of them have damaged his car too badly. I think he ate at least part of all the ones he hit too. 

ETA: He called the cops each time so he could get permission to take the deer home. The cops have to fill out a special ticket giving you permission to have a dead deer out of deer season.

I haven't but lived in an area where it happened many times.. Aim for the deer.. It will get scared and run away... If you attempt to go around it you still may hit it since you won't know which way it will run

If you have any damage to your vehicle, call the police to fill out a report. When my step-mom and I hit one, it was still alive, but unable to move, so it was just laying down all seren like in the middle of the road. We had to call my uncles to come and put it out of it's misery. We then went to the state police department to report it, so she could file with insurance. It was at night, like 8 or 9, maybe. I think it was in the fall.
