If you're trying to upload a pic that's got the same name as a pic that's already in your album it won't work. Just rename the pic or uncheck "Use Orginal File Name".

They got lucky, but the car doesn't seem to have suffered too much. BTW Is that the Focus that you're always talking about? lol

At least the driver is okay. Just by coincidence, I watched two vehicles hit the same deer last night. Driving along on the way home with my honey, we were following a late model Exploder along a two-lane, dark, tree lined road at about 50 mph. I saw the eyes flash on the road ahead and slowed down, but the driver of the Ford was busy on her cell phone (yes, she told my wife after the fact) and drove right into it.

With everyone okay (except Bambi who was alive and still kicking... a little) another guy showed up so we used a tow strap to tie it's hind legs and attached it to my truck to pull it off the side of the road. The movement startled it and it kicked free and now he was pissed but couldn't get up. If you've ever been sliced by a deer hoof you'll know sometimes the best thing to do is to stand back.

So here is the current scenerio. There are now six vehicles in close proximity of the deer, four on one side of the road and two on the other. All of them have their emergency flashers on and all of them have their headlights aimed at the deer with the exception of the Exploder (no more headlights) and my truck. We're standing around trying to decide if the best course of action is to shoot it (put it out of it's misery) with the 9mm I carry in the truck, the other guy's 22 or wait till a cop shows up with a 12 guage, and... Some dumbass in a Neon comes along and hits it again. Right in front of eight or nine people who are looking at the deer lit up like broad it's daylight.

And you know what? She said she didn't see it... because she was getting her ringing cell phone out of her purse. At least she snapped it's neck and killed it. More proof that some people shouldn't breed. :banghead:

Can't help but feel for the deer there VWHobo.

I did and I do. That's why I wanted to make sure that when it was shot, he died instantly and the the 9mm or the 22 weren't going to do it. I sure as hell don't care about the dumbasses that hit him. And then to add insult to injury (or death), he won't even be usable for some good steaks, sausage or chile.

Being a military man you probably would have appreciated the old 243 rifle I used for roo shooting with a dum dum.

Well, I find that kinda funny, $5 says it was Newyorker that hit the deer second :laughing:

Me as well. :orglaugh:

Me too...untill I saw hobo say it was a female, although that means nothing in this day and age lol.

lol, yes, that's one of the Focus'.....the higher mileage one (just topped 200,000miles a couple of weeks ago :ohcrap:)

He was going at about 40mph, I too have seen DEER cause more damage than this, but it's still a write-off, and considering he didn't actually hit the deer (maybe I didn't word it properly, he missed the deer and hit the island, including it's lamp post, instead, the deer ran off!), I think he made a pretty fine mess of it lol...and no, I wasn't in the car, I just had to take the rest of the drivers work from him lol. I'm suprised he didn't do any damage to himself though, as both airbags deployed and usually the drivers airbag would atleast burn your arms, especially as he was in a short sleaved shirt!
