Not 15 minutes ago, right in front of my driveway. I was going about 50mph (55mph speed limit) on the decelleration to turn in, and I looked down to turn off my radio and check my speed and when I looked back up there was a deer sprinting in front of my truck.

I hit it on the left front bumper, it made a loud crashing, cracking noise and it tumbled off the road. It was a big buck, probably 4 points on each side.

Obviously I slowed down to make sure it got off the road and wasn't about to get hit by other cars.

Anyway, finished pulling into my driveway and checked my car.

At first glance it's not bad at all. There is a small 3-4inch crack in the plastic, nothing a little glue wouldn't fix, and the headlight fell out of it's socket and broke. The plastic headlight enclosure is loose.

What do I do pit? Report to insurance? How much would that cost to fix?

Doesnt sound like it would be something you need to report, the damage isnt great.

Its a good thing you didnt get hurt, deer are the most lethal animal on earth.

I'm a bit disappointed you didn't end the poor thing's misery with your bare hands then enjoy a nice venison meal.

I wouldn't report it to insurance, those bitches will suck you dry of every penny they can from it.

I live in the forest. There is a dead deer missing two legs about 200 feet from where I hit this one. Deer are everywhere here.

That is up to you. If you think the damage is minor then go get it fixed on your own. If not then I suggest reporting it. Get an assessment on it at least. Then decide if you want to file a claim.
#10
I wouldn't report it because they'll charge you way more over time on your bill than the cost of the damages. Just make it look like your car is fine in case the authorities are dealing with the corpse as you drive by or something.

EDIT: I don't know about elsewhere, but here in Ohio it's illegal to hit a deer and not report it.....it may even be considered a hit and run>.< not sure but it's the same idea.

Yeah dude, just call your insurance people and they'll sort it out. All you'll pay is the deductible. I hit a deer a couple months ago. It sucked.

actually, they'll probably raise your bill(...premium?) also. Just like when you're in any other kind of accident.

Got a better idea? It's not like it's callin' for a rez or anything. It's done for, unlike his car which can actually be fixed.
maybe if you had a

you'd

No, he did a pretty dramatic barrel roll for about 30 feet though.

Well, OP said it lived. Though it will lead a life of despair, immobility, and "why me, god" moments. Again, OP should have put it out of its misery and feasted in its name.

It's just that he said it in a mean way, like that he wanted to make sure it was off the road from the impact, and that his car gut dented. He just didn't say much like, I hit a dear. I feel back but my car in dented too. It was more like, I killed a deer and my car in damaged.

Oh, yeah TS you should've ended it so it didn't have to suffer. That's why I always recommend you keep one of these in your trunk:

Also, tape a picture of Obama onto the receiver, it adds a +20 accuracy buff

EDIT: C'mon, it'll make for a funny story in the pit when you get pulled over and a cop finds a .50 in your trunk with Obama's picture on it

Well you live in the states, the deer there are small. If you hit a deer in Canada at that speed you car would be alot worse off.

Look man, it's not like I'm too stoked that I hit a deer, but what's done is done and I can't do anything about it other than try to fix my truck. I'm sorry I didn't word it more sensitive towards the deer, I mean cmon. I work minimum wage, it's a big deal for me when something like this happens.

That reminds me of a story. My dad was driving home from Houston when he heard a loud thump from the front of the car. He shook it off and when he got home, found a dead baby owl stuck in one of his headlights. A ****ing owl. It was insane.

well your truck is still drivable. Isn't it? I mean... If I hit a dear and damaged my car a bit, I wouldn't care too much about my car for a while. That's just me. You hit it in front of your house, and first thing you did was check to see if your car was alright, then went on UG.
I would of went over to the poor deer, covered it or something with an old blanket, called animal control to come get it. Then thought about the dent.
