I hate deer

Arg, on my way home about 11 tonight and am comming over a small hill, right over the top there is a deer aannndd i smashed it. Was able to slow to about 30 before I hit it so luckily the bumper seems ok. Clear corner, headlight, grill are all shatered. Sucks too because I have 1,000 dollar deductable so it will all probably be comming outa my pocket. Anyway I will have pics tomorrow when I'm in a better mood. Just needed to vent a bit.

Uh, yeah, wholey crap Q!

Chris, my advice is to not even tell the insurance company about it. A few 'little' claims like this and your premiums will go through the roof, regardless of fault. Ask me how I know.. :(

Uh.. I'm not so sure. I have a Manik on my truck and have 'tapped' a few arm and wrist sized pines not too long ago. I now have some pretty heavy dents in the guard. I believe they are 80% cosmetic..

Hahah the deer is good and dead so I dont think I will be seeing any money from him. If I was going to do it, now would be the time to try an 04 front end conversion... may run into some problems with the hood latch though...

Six deer...I hope you had five other guys with you....in TN that would be five years in jail if you did that by yourself. TX may be different.

Christian, that is an AWESOME mount. My brother does Taxidermy work...I need to show you guys some pics of his work. He's done a bobcat, 2 turkeys, one racoon, 2 coyotes, one fox, countless deer, and rabbits. He's only been in business about six months. I'm keeping him busy on the fish side of things. :D

that pic is when it is in the taxidermists' office...

my dad's office is full of mounts.. my stepmom doesn't allow them in the house...

i have a few mounts in my dorm room, a turkey in my room, a deer in my room... and one of the mounts in my dorm is one of our cows that got shot by some losers(tresspassing) point blank in the forehead... it looks scary...
