Default Deer

Hit a god damn deer tonight on the way home. Was going about 40 and it ran right out from the woods. I hit him on the left front. Front bumper is bent, busted my grill on the bottom and busted out my turn signal also bent the metal valence piece right above the bumper.

pissed as shit. I turned around right after I hit it, went back and I grabbed my lug wrench, I couldn't find the deer but I was going to make the damage worth it. (sorry animal lovers, this is the only case where I would do something like that)

we call that bumper tagging and with out the tag's your looking at fines up to 5000 and/or 1 year in jail. my brother he is still paying for the deer he hit and put in his truck just as the game warden showed up! when he went to court he said the same thing just thought i would get some thing for all the damage it caused. judge didn't like that at all

okay, well I guess I'm glad the deer ran off, maybe it ran into the field near the road and died over there.

You were going to beat a deer with a lug wrench?

Ha, when I went to work yesterday morning I saw the deer on the other side of the ditch in the field getting eaten by turkey vultures, he didn't get very far after I hit him so i'm satisfied with that.

I'll put some up. I gotta take them first. And bambi was already gone last night so either those birds were super hungry or someone came out and cleaned it up so, sorry but we dont get to have any pics of bambi.

Here's the pics, the damage isn't as bad as some of you probably pictured it to be but it still is pretty bad to me.

from a distance


close up


this is the fender on the good side of the truck, but when the bumper bent it went inwards on both sides so it's not supposed to be touching like that.






These next pic make my amber turn signals held in by zip ties look a little better.
