I see deer every day. A friend of mine hit a deer a few weeks ago with his BMW 7 series. Did you know that the headlights on those things cost $1000.00?? Of course, the deer got the fender, bumper and hood as well.

Had a deer hit me in the side, took out both doors. Deer was seriously injured but able to stand, barely. Sad part is that the police came, said he was going to euthanize the animal. Four shots with a .40 caliber pistol, close range. While another cop took down my report, I watched sadly as the deer stood there for 10 more minutes. Wanted to race home for my gun just to put it out of it's misery. Point being, if you want to rob a bank, do it in Pennington, NJ. Even if the police come, there is a really good chance you'll get away!

Out of the 24 deer I saw in Wisconsin's gun season, 8 of them were on the road. I guess my 451 has some sort of traction control, because I "dynamited" the brakes 3 times in the last 5 days, and yes my deer whistles must work; I've not smoked a Cervid with Ms. Katarina yet!

One year I got my limit of 5 deer with different cars/trucks.

Just about hit 2 a few weeks ago they were standing in the middle between both lanes on a main highway about a mile apart. If I was driving a full size car, I'd be picking Bambi out of my teeth. as it was, my smart was quick enough to swerve around them.

In forty years of driving, I've spotted deer from my vehicle exactly 3 times. Twice it was a pair, and once a single deer. Two of the sightings were within State Parks.


Once, driving through west Texas and New Mexico, I saw thousands of large jack rabbits. Like a locust swarm, they were everywhere, alive and dead. I nearly jack knifed the rig I was driving (1969 Ford Custom 500 hauling a Ford Pinto). That scared me enough to realize avoiding the rabbits was just too dangerous. But, I don't recall hitting a live one.

Ride up to my house NCC. I guarantee you'll see some deer. I see them everyday. A lot right here on the property.

Thank God you didn't hurt the Pinto.
