Unhappy ME vs DEER........... (need a bumper)


t'was 3am 4.4.08 (early last friday morning.) was on my way to do some turkey hunting in GA. Northbound I75 appr. mile marker 27.... guess this buck thought he would be perfectly safe standing in my lane..... well I was cruising 75mph... slammed on the brakes.... and hit him at 65 or so.... he lost the 100 yard dash that day.... heres the "carnage"




pics taken from the "non-impact side"




Boy did it make a thud, hit him so hard there were deer turds impacted in my A/C condenser ..... so bottom line.... im in the market for a bumper.... Insurance says my deductible is $500 so it just looks like I will be looking for a used bumper in good condition.... PM me if you have one.

On a side note..... we didnt kill any turkeys but I got this here rabbit with my trusty 10/22...... and of course, took these pics to email my mother.... just to confuse her

I cant imagine the "Thud" going 65. I hit one going about 35 and that was loud enough.(Vehicle I had before Powerstroke)

Your lucky though that thats all the damage that was done.

Good luck with your quest.

yeah.... he bounced pretty damn good! I think a lot of the force went into the tow hook.

Nice!

35 didnt quite take care of Bambi when I hit her. Sheriff shot her twice couldnt believe it. Then he asked if I wanted to keep it. Keep in mind the vehicle was a Geo Tracker. "Yea officer help me put it in the backseat please"

Yeah.... I didn't think there was going to be much in good meat left on this guy.... I think he died pretty much on impact.... walked over to him and gave him a kick... didnt even move. I didnt roll him over to see the other side

Re: ME vs DEER........... (need a bumper)

I used to hunt deer with my suburban, there is an art to it to have them still dressable out

First kill was an accident, rest qualified as hunting...

At least it just the bumper to replace, could of been a lot worse.
