    And silencers.

    Also tactical night-vision equipment, hand grenades and weaponized drones.

    Forget ‘the caravan’, deer are a bigger threat.

    plastic is light and easily replaced. I remember a roommate getting a deer in his old 80's Camaro. It destroyed the bumper, hood, and headlights on the one side. NJ deer are tiny too!

    This was a sizable deer. Flipped up from the fender. Broke the windshield. Smeared deer **** on the door handle(bastard). Apparently kicked both drivers sides doors. Then tore the rear fender valence. I came to a stop and looked in the rear view mirror. He got up slowly. Shook it off. Gave me the finger. And trotted off into the cornfield.

    The damage is much more painful if you're on a motorsickle.

    Door handle? At that point, you kick out the driver side window and General Lee in and out.

    i ate a fair amount of roadkill as a teen in Montana. the highway through the Swan in the winter could keep a family of 4 in meat.

    you gotta cut around the really mangled parts, they dont taste so good.

    You'd need a lift, bigger tires, and some armor before a winch . . . but then, yeah, get a winch. Brush guards suck, in many cases, when you hit something besides brush, they do more harm to the truck than good. When you get a lift, put some heavy duty coil-overs on and get a full guard steel bumper, then you have something to mount your winch to.

    This happened to my brother in law once. He was so mad at the deer wrecking his truck that he grabbed his hunting knife off the front seat and ran off after it into the woods. Tasted pretty good actually.

    Really? The deer walked away from that? Good for him/her. We've bagged two deer in our lives, one by me, the other by my wife. About $1000 damage each time. One deer killed outright, the other the game warden had to come and finish off.

    yikes! damn automobiles messing up things.

    Speaking of deer season this is the second time I’ve been in Tennessee when deer season starts. Last time when it was time for rifles and around 5:45 am I hear a whole bunch of shots go off in succession from one rifle, maybe 7 rounds in five seconds. I guess folks like to warm up their rifles.

    Could be worse. Could have been a moose.

    A lot of moose crossing signs on the highways hereabouts. I've only seen one once, thirty years ago, but an acquaintance had the roof of his sedan peeled halfway off by one. He was lucky! It just missed his head. Both taller and heavier those largest of the deer clan!

    The push is on here to change the definition of feral deer from 'game' to 'vermin'. The hunting fraternity do not agree, but I think it will happen.

    Oh. My. God. Deer have fingers? That means they can operate an AR 15. We're in trouble.

    I've heard a common scenario where a car hits a moose that makes hitting a deer seem like nothing at all.

    The car clips the moose's legs out from under it and the moose passes over the car hood and through the windshield. The tick-infested animal falls into the front seat, sometimes killing the passengers, and the shock causes it to defecate into the car. Then the moose regains consciousness and begins to struggle.

    All told, I prefer a deer.
