    I am so sorry to hear of your deer/car accident. All that matters is no human was hurt.

    Deer are a big problem around here - glad you weren't hurt. We have several friends who have run into them on dark roads.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    We don't have deer, but Kangaroos are a real problem around here, they get pretty big and do some serious damage too. I'm glad you weren't hurt.
    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    Been there, done that, and so has my daughter. Neither of us were hurt. Glad you're okay, too.

    I hit two deer while living in MT. As the silly insurance lady said, "did you hit the deer, or did the deer hit you?" She had to have been a city girl. I was really shook up when I hit the first one. I'll never forget her eyes. Always a blessing when it is not serious. But I had to have body work done both times.

    I have never hit, or been hit, by a deer, but my brother hit one that came through the windshield and one of the antler tips just scraped the corner of his right eye. 1/4" closer and he probably would have lost his eye and maybe his life. Truck was nearly totaled. Glad you are well, sorry about your car.

    Glad you ok. My neighbor and his family were coming back from Texas, just north of San Antonio and a deer got them in the back panel of the car. Scared the kids, but everyone was ok.

    Must have been scary for you. Hope you can get the car fixed without it being too inconvenient.

    Oh Dear, it did do some damage. But, you wouldn't want to hit a kangaroo, it could right off your car.

    Deer can do a lot of damage. There was an accident many years ago in FL where a car going north hit a deer, the deer crashed into a car heading south, went through the windshield, killed the driver, went out the back window and landed 30 feet down the road.

    One of the scariest things I have seen driving, I was headed south on an interstate, on the right was woods, there was no median, just a 5 foot high concrete divider between northbound and southbound lanes. As I watched in horror, a deer came out of the woods on my right, made it across all the southbound lanes, LEAPT over the concrete barrier into heavy traffic going north. I was beyond it at that point, I can only imagine it landing ON someone's car or just in front with the driver having no warning or chance to stop.

    Glad you were not hurt.

    DD and I were driving in the dark on I-90 in Montana and hit a young dear. There were many people behind me and so I could not stop. There was no damage to the truck I was driving, the damage was to my emotional well being. I pulled off at a rest stop as soon as I could and just breathed for a while. I had looked in the mirror after I hit the dear and I could see that it was in shock with a broken leg. Definately hard on my heart.

    Glad you were not hurt. My sil and dd live in a very rural area and in 2 months' time hit two deer, a turkey and a raccoon. Their car was in the shop about a month and when they got it they hit the second deer the next day. I had never heard of anyone hitting a turkey, but I guess it can be done. We now call that area death valley.

    We have a lot of deer here too. One ran into my husband and crushed the front quarter panel and hood almost $1k damage. The adjuster said if he had hit the front, the car would have been totaled. Glad no one was hurt!

    Hitting deer around here is serious business and big business. Fortunately I have not had any deer wrecks. Hiopefully I will not although I have had two very close calls

    You are very lucky that is all it did to your vehicle .. Glad you are safe.

    When a trucker hits a deer, elk or moose-let's just say its time for either the DOW to come out or the truck is along side the road parked due to damage sustained from the confrontation.

    I live in central Texas. I was driving through my friend's neighborhood (minding my own business) when a doe comes sailing over the hood of my van. Scared the living daylights outta me!
