Hit a deer

Keep an eye out for those deer's. I hit one in my blazer this morning going about 55mph. It was a doe, and just ran right out in front of me, I pretty much T-boned her. Her head hit my passenger side blinker light and her ass hit the drivers side bumper and pushed it in a little bit. I was surprised it didnt do as much damage that I thought it would. After I hit her I ended up running over her too (ouch!) The front wheels came off of the ground and now my blazers a little out of alignment. I can only imagine what would have happend if Pat was with me [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] And for all you red necks out there, No I didnt stop to get the deer [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Hit a deer

I bet the thing got back up and ran off. [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
I saw one get nailed by a tractor trailer on my way to work a few years back. I thought the thing was definitely dead.
After it bounced off the bumper, it hit the concrete divider, jumped back up and bolted across the rest of the highway.
On the other hand, I passed by the top half of a doe on the same road. Pretty gruesome.
Be careful though, when one runs across the road, there are usually a couple more following behind. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Hit a deer

Jeepchick got one in her Intrepid a couple of years ago. It was a good size buck with his head down and she hit him with the left headlight/fender. It spun him around and he ripped off the rear bumper (if you could call it a bumper). Tore the car up pretty good but I was just thankful she was not hurt. I came very close to smacking on on the same hwy a few days later. I had just passed a big truck when I see this b buck stepping into my lane, head up high. I missed him but the truck T-boned him. Not a pretty sight.

Re: Hit a deer

I saw what happens when a deer gets between the cab and the trailer on a tractor-trailer. It isn't pretty. There was deer hide and blood for about a mile and a half before the tires finally spit out what was left.

Re: Hit a deer

Is that a ZR2 I see in that there picture? If so, Hail to the ZR2!!!! [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] I loved my Blazer but it could not handle the dirt too well. I had tons of electrical problems. So I bought a 73 CJ5 to beat up off-road. Hope you have good luck with it.

Re: Hit a deer

I hit one that stuck it's leg through the soft top window before launching off the back and running into the woods.

My mom still hasn't driven with me since..

The worst one I ever saw was one that got smacked by a F250 on the northbound side of the highway, went over the divider and was smacked by a MAC truck before it even touched the ground..

That was the nastiest thing I have ever seen.

Then there's always the fox that got punted off the edge of a 70-80 foot cliff.. that was by far the funniest one.

Re: Hit a deer

I know a guy who cut one in half on his Honda 650 motorcycle doing about 110 mph. We took the same route to work and I must have been just a few minutes ahead of him because I saw the deer in the ditch and was worried it was going to run out in front of me on my bike.

Me and my brother went and picked up his bike from the towing place and it was not a pretty sight the front tire was touching the oil filter and it stunk real bad from all the insides all over it. He was lucky to live through it he did break a ankle and had a hairline fracture in his skull (no helmet) but he was out of the hospital in 3 days.

We see deer all the time on the road we live on...well until hunting season comes along [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Hit a deer

1. Stop for a deer at your own peril.
2. I prefer Mad Max spikes on the bumper.
3. The law frowns on my ideas.
4. In the 1950's I was standing outside Valdez Alaska on a snowbank made from the snowblower on a locomotive.
5. I was standing at the bend in the tracks and could see a bull moose standing on the tracks.
6. A train was coming and blew it's horn.
7. The moose, startled, lowered it's head and started to charge the oncoming train.
8. The locomotive was equiped with a very large snowblower.
9. It was not a pretty site when that moose hit those blades.
10. It was about the same sound as if a misqueto flew into the fan on you're computers power supply.
11. Only amplified... a lot!
12. That moose never knew what he hit...
13. The fan blades hardly even knew the moose was there...
14. They never slowed down.
15. This made the natives downright happy...It rained moose for about the next mile... [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Re: Hit a deer

1. That's disgusting.
2. Those Railroad Snowplows are something and a moose would certainly pose no problem.
3. That's disgusting.
4. The reason a cow catcher on a locomotive is called that is due to a device fashioned to deal with cows on the tracks that was a plate of iron with spikes. When the train hit the cow, it impaled it and carried it on the locomotive. The idea was to keep the cow from going under the locomotive causing the derailment. The farmers didn't like it, so they had to change to a system where the cow was instead thrown to the side, but the name stuck (so to speak).
5. That's disgusting!
