So I was on my way to work and from outta nowhere BLAM hit a deer. The only damage is the corner of the fender is caved in. Any ideas how to pull it out?

... The biggest buck I have seen in my life was one I took out with a 2500. The hp wouldn't let me take it, but the tow truck guys went back later and grabbed the front to mount!

BTW, I was just talking to my buddy from up-state NY and he told me that back home that deer were considered "property of the state" and NY paid for any damage resulting from hitting one!!!

My state would be broke tomorrow!

Try using a hair dryer (or a heat gun set on low), and a wide bladed extra long screwdriver.

I don't know... he said that technically it was illegal. It was my first question. Here they collect them and take them to the food bank.

I had an interesting hit. The deer jumped in the middle of a 2 lane just as I was approaching a car coming my direction. I hit the head and the car hit the rear end. Deer spun like a top and tore up the whole side of my silverado.

glad you made it out OK!

I worked about 8 miles out in the country at a sand plant where they separate rock and sand for concrete mix. We worked at night, overnight, and the deer were all over the place from 10pm to 3am. There were times when patrol came by and checked in on us, they always joked about how they were waiting for the deer in the road and wanted to hit one so they could make some jerky. They weren't kidding either, my one supv used to bring out all sorts of deer jerky. She and her husband went hunting for elk and whitetail or mule deer every year and she would carve it up. Nobody in my unit ever hit a deer though, it's like they knew we were hunting them with our vehicles.

Im no body guy, but if you went to a body shop and didnt mind a hole they could maybe use one of those stud pop rivet dent pullers.
