Default I hate deer

I just got a 94 ranger, 5 speed 4cyl with 129,000. i paid like 500 bones for it which i thought was a good price. Very minmal rust body looks good, and it runs good. So im just driving around and a damn deer hops out and i nail it going like 35. now i have to get a new grill i hate ohio sometimes.

At least you weren't going 60. You'd be replacing more than that. Sucks about the damage though.

Been there and done that deer thing in my first ranger, and it was a good wakeup call to watch for deer from now on, lol.

I hit one before in my old ranger. I was going about 75 (toll road). Luckily I just hit it in the ass while trying to avoid it. It only broke the driver side headlight cover and put a lil ding in my hood / side ( my custom grill guard was messed up though ). It was scary as hell, that thing probably got shot up in the air about 6 feet spinning around like a dang windmill.

I am invincible as fas as deer are concerned. I've hit two with zero damage. One was in my countour and i had slowed to like 10mph when i hit it. Got it in the ass and it did a somersault, got up and stumbled into the woods. Got out and checked it over, not even a scratch. The second I was doing about 40 down a hill with woods on either side. The deer came running out and only got its head in front of my jeep before it made contact. Dead deer.

Deer fear me.

Nope, lol the other truck is still on the road, although the damage from the last deer is still there, that happened right before I moved to Montana so that truck has pretty much been sitting idle for two years. I'll fix it this summer. And the 2 dents in the Ranger.

Almost hit plenty here too, just barely missed that last one.

Anyone know if those little whistles that stick on your bumper really work?
