Yup. If only they'd moved the deer crossing sign.



Christmas is cancelled. I killed Rudolph. :steamed:

Glad he/she/it didn't go through the windshield.
Ruins your day for sure, but better than the deer's.

Yeah, all things considered, it wasn't that bad. No way it was coming through the window... it was covered with a protective steel plate... my hood. Made stopping, um, interesting.


I think a little duct tape and rubbing compound and it'll be as good as new!

Sometimes they like to jump right before you nail them.. which really complicates things.:supergrin:

What's weird is there was no airbag deployment (which I'm actually happy about), but doesn't it look like they should have?

I hit the sucker at about 62mph.

Imagine you're a deer. You're prancing along, you get thirsty, you spot a little brook, you put your little deer lips down to the cool clear water...

Sorry to hear about your accident. My coworker was showing me pictures yesterday of his brothers truck from this past Saturday night. He swerved to miss a deer and rolled his Chevy S10 after he put it into a ditch. Good thing he was okay.

we had a guy do that...loaded fuel tanker. (you can guess how big of a mess that made...but he missed the deer) shame bambi didn't have insurance.

I thought of you right after it happened. :supergrin:


I'm fine, not hurt. Yes it was a nice sized buck. Yes, deer are idiots.

Funny thing: It happened in an area with no cell coverage. 3 people had stopped to help before I had time even check to see if the deer was still in the road. After cleaning things up a bit (plastic/glass bits and pieces... deer had disappeared) and getting my stuff together I walked maybe 30' before another dude stopped in a grey F150. Hey, I have a grey f150. His last name was the same as mine. And he was driving to work... in the same town, on the same street where I work... about 4 blocks away. It was strange!

I was driving a new Peterbilt in Chantilly Va and we were in the farmlands (fields). My buddy who was in the passenger seat says "hey look at the deer way out there". I kept driving and for some reason they were running almost parralel but towards my path. Finally I realize it's on and tapped the brakes but too late. I hit one with the right front chrome fender and it launched the deer like a catapult. This deer flew about 500 yards through the air. When it landed the deer got up and ran away tail up. :shocked:

Glad your ok OP

I hit the sucker at about 62mph.

The vehicle itself has to decelerate at a fairly good rate to fire the airbags. Chances are the deer's mass wasn't enough to slow down the mass of your car moving at 62mph.

I'm with you on this one and glad to hear they didn't go off!
DIAF? Shouldn't that be COAF, Cook Over A Fire!

It was much more than strange. It was paranormal.

That encounter with the man with your name, driving a gray Ford 150 like yours, working in the same town on the very street as you, may have happened exactly as you described.

But more likely you were simply interacting with the ghost of yourself, a residual haunting caused from the shock/energy/emotion left behind from the accident.

I'm also guessing you hit the residual energy of a deer, not a real live deer. That would explain why your air bags didn't deploy and the deer's body was never found. :rofl:

Sorry about the car. Glad you're ok.

"We hit the deer and his paw... What do you call it? The paw."
"The hoof."
"It got caught in the grill. I got to hack it off."

Don't know the year, but just from the pics, if there's no frame damage (doubtful, looks like a pretty straight hit and not enough mass to compress the frame) and without airbag deployments, I'd guess they will opt for repair rather than total loss.


I don't know how redneck it is, but as of last year, here in IL, you'd be perfectly legal to take that boy home and get him cleaned and prepped for your freezer (to be followed by your grill....well....your OTHER grill).
