    We've deer, turkeys, foxes, fishers, and maybe coyotes, but never seen or heard one in our neighborhood. Have seen or heard the others.

    At our daughter's in Helena, MT, we've seen deer strolling down the street. Not stupid, they know where it's safe.

    I once creamed a barn owl at night, as it swooped across the road just at the height of my windshield. No damage to the truck, probably because it was a 30 mph road, but Hootie the Owl did not make it ( and some rodent or rabbit lived to squeak another day)

    I went for decades of lots of night-time miles without a single casualty, but in the past three years I have auto-assaulted one deer (a big one!), a turtle, a couple of partridge, a rabbit, a couple of squirrels, and a raccoon. So far, I have fortunately maintained my no-hit record of porcupines and skunks. And no, I am not trying to make up for lost time.
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    The road kill birds you see here are Pukeko, a swamp hen, and Hawks. The hawks get hit because they won't or can't let go of the carcase they're on.
    Northland roads have a lot of beware of kiwi signs, fortunately I haven't seen one.

    From Adventure Rider at https://advrider.com/f/threads/i-hit...-bear.1339423/


    A friend and I were hitting the back roads in West Virginia earlier this week. We always take turns leading and picking out interesting side roads in the mountains. I was leading on my Africa Twin on a twisty two lane road. I came around a little right hander at about 50 MPH and scared up a black bear that was in the ditch on the right hand side. I didn't see him until he darted out of the ditch.

    I didn't really have any time to react other than swerving to the left a bit. I was relieved when I was able to get the front of my bike past the bear, but then I felt a substantial hit on the back of the bike. I looked in the rear view mirror and saw my buddy swerving to miss the bear and the OEM side case and its contents laying all over the road. Luckily, neither the bear or me went down.

    My next concern was dealing with a really pissed off bear! However, he was hightailing it back up the mountain. The side case was totally destroyed and there was a slight dent in the heat shield on the muffler, but that was the extent of the damage. It could have been much much worse.

    So, if anyone has right side OEM case, OR wants to buy an OEM Africa Twin a left hand side case, I'm all ears. Racer

    PS Side case sold.

    Damage to three panels plus windshield.... yeah 6k seems about right for that. Did you at least hose-off the deer **** before you brought it into the shop?

    That winter after Reagan's election I was rural poor people's organizing in New Hampshire's North Country. I'd had a round of house meetings through the late afternoon into the night - Groveton, Lancaster, Whitefield, Bethleham - and had come over Agasssiz Hill on my way home to Franconia. About midnight. Lovely full moon. Snowbanks high on each side of the narrow road so it was like driving through a white trench with a roof the brighter stars and the moon. When out of the sky something landed on the hood of my car, smashed through the windshield, and somewhat hung up on the steering wheel.

    I managed to stop without crashing and found a twitching thrashing deer keeping me stuck. I was able to get out my knife and cut her carotid and that left peace enough to extricate myself. I remembered an occupied farm house by the meadow at the foot of the hill so, after putting out reflectors each way in the unlikely event that another car came by, I lurched the half mile to warmth and a phone.

    I must have been a horrible sight, covered in deer blood and all. The whole family got up and got dressed to hear my tale and ply me with coffee. They offered whiskey but I saved that till after my interview with the Stateys.

    I was told I had a right to any salvageable meat. Since I didn't want it, I happily gave that mess to the farmer. I did have dinner on some of it in the spring or so. Because I'd bled the doe so soon after impact, there was less blood damaged meat than one would expect from road kill.

    As the spoof radio show call-in went (sorry, that meme really was a gag), they really ought to move the deer crossings to a place you're stopping anyway, like by the school bus stop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFCrJleggrI

    Unhappy Re: Deer season should be extended, magazine capacity unlimited, auto weapons allowed

    I hit an 8 point buck going 55MPH in a 28 foot box truck.
    At night during a thunder storm.
    Killed the deer, the truck had to be towed and I needed a change of underwear.
    Ain't fun is it Paul?

    So, if the deer had automatic weapons with extended capacity magazines, how badly would they mess up cars?

    Exclamation Re: Deer season should be extended, magazine capacity unlimited, auto weapons allowed

    I whacked an Armadillo in Texas one night.
    It banged around like a pinball underneath my 71 Ford Mavrick and knocked the muffler and tailpipe off.

    My lad is driving the East Coast of Oz at the moment. He's whacked a few Roos with his roo bar. No problem. But one came at him from the side. Bugger.

    Years ago I rode my Triumph Tiger up to Moosehead lake. I was on a logging road north of Jackman, playing boy racer sliding the rear wheel some on the corners & came around one to find a cow & her calf in the middle of the road. I came to a stop less than 10 ft. from them, stalled the bike & sat there shaking. She gave me a "What is your problem?" look & ambled off.

    I rode about 15 MPH the rest of the way...

    FIL had a deer cave in the windshield and wipe out the passenger seat in his Boxster. Needless to say, we was pretty shaken up by it.

    Fortunately the car was away at the shop long enough for him to calm down.

    Actually, moose have such long legs that they tend to flip up over the vehicle. Unless you have a typical Yank pickup or SUV.

    Oh I so want this to be part of Kat's christmas-surprise scheme in which the body shop pretends to have lost the exploder so they could have time to paint it John Deere Green.
