I wish I would have driven my Jeep...

A deer thought it could ram me and live. My little Neon didn't stand a chance. My headlights, radiator, hood, bumper, and left fender is all fubr. My driverside door wont open pulled the front end out of alignment it likes to pull to the left alot now. If only I would have driven my Jeep.

I hit a deer once in an 89 GMC s-15 Jimmy 4x4. A few hairs and a spec of blood on my bent tag was all the damage it did.. and she got up and walked away after rolling down the road a ways.. Wranglers are about the only thing with steel bumpers anymore.

Ill get some pics it it happened close to 8:30 last night. My Neon has taken a beating this is the second deer I've hit on the same road. There is just tall grass on either side of the road and it makes it hard to see the speed limit is 55 but i was going 45 and I saw a deer jump so i applied my brakes then no sooner than I let my foot off the brake another one jumped out and hit me. In fact the I hit the other one less than 100 yards away. Never again will my Neon go on that road...only my Jeep.

my wife's cousin hit a deer a couple of years ago in an older S10. It rolled over the roof and into the bed. He stopped and got out and the guy behind him stopped too. The deer was alive but not long for this world, the guy that had stopped asked her cousin if he was going to keep it? Steve said no and the guy ran back to his truck got his pistol, shot the deer in the head and asked Steve to help him get it in the back of his truck. So he did, he was like, I wasn't arguing with a guy with a gun LOL ... hope your OK.
