on my poor car since a freeken big buck ran into the side of my car last night 5 miles from home. I am fine, did not even need to stop the car. The worst part was I did not even kill it, it just bounced around on the side of my car, then ran off into the woods. If a deer is going to do that much damage to my car, I at least want to harvest the meat. I live in an area where there are too many deer and I see new ones dead on the side of the road every day and think hopefully the person that hit that one is ok and what a waste of good meat. I also feel very lucky since it was a big deer and if I would have hit it head on, I could have been seriously injured and my car been totaled. Luckily I only have a $250 deductible on my insurance but it still bites. Then I saw maybe another 8-9 deer in the 5 miles to my house and there was one doe standing along side the road ¼ mile from my driveway.
So this little incident just reaffirms our plans for hunting season. My hubby or I do not hunt but a friend of my hubby’s hunts close to where we live so we are buying him some tags to harvest some deer for us. There are just too many deer out there plus venison is a good healthy meat.
Next is getting the damage appraiser to come out and take a look at the car and write us a check for the damages, then find a place to fix it.
Oh well, could be worse....
