It's filthy with deer here, peops are hitting them all the time. Glad your mom was ok, I heard on the news, deer are the most lethal animal in North America, they cause more deaths than any other animal. I will give kudos to the 8 or 9 deer that hang around my road, they wait nicely on the side of the road and wait for cars to pass, quite road savvy.

(Sorry, Mama but it's true. ) But it happened in front of a known druggie house so I didn't feel like dealing with any high-out-of-their-mind idiots who could be armed and dangerous.

I hit a huge buck a few years ago in my little Honda Civic. I also didn't see it and hit it square on. $11,000 worth of damage to a brand new car, but I was fine. Police officer looked at the deer and my car and said he couldn't believe I was standing there. Always hit them square on if you have the choice. Glad your mom is okay.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
