that happened to my best friend and i on our way to school. he had an old sixty somethin impala practically mint condition. we never saw the deer though. the deer rammed his car so hard that the antlers pierced the door and popped off the inside panel. the wort part was when we stopped, the deer was still stuck and totallly thrashing around.......kickin in the whole side of the friggin car.

cops came and shot it....right there on the side of the road.

Deer whistles work when placed correctly. They have to allow air to flow completely through them. If there is something behind them, then they can fail. Putting them into a bumper grille or a grille is unreliable at best. They were designed for mirrors or the roof ideally.

The dent on the rear quarter can be removed by magnetic stud pulling and shrinking of the metal. It doesn't need to be replaced. Trust me, I've worked with autobody for 20 years. The door however should be blended to maintain color consistency.

Both my husband and I have hit deer in our cars, although it was several years ago for both of us. I'm sorry about that, Mike Your car is nice and I hope you can get it fixed easily.

i saw this car on the side of the road that hit a deer, nasty stuff, hood all banged up windsheild completely shatered and bowed in and the roof was bent inwards and crinckled upwards like a foot. like the hood/windsheild could have hit him in the head, it was that bent in. blood everywhere and a deer laying next to the car. horrible.

That's really unfortunate. Just because I'm a nice guy, I'll make a deal for you. You can have all my perfectly good new high tech planted stuff. All you have to give me is that banged up old Camero.

Not sure how this helps me when I was nearly stopped, and the deer hit the side of the Camaro.

Yeah, you guys are pretty lucky. I'm an insurance agent in Southern Illinois where deer claims are a daily occurance. I've seen new SUV's totalled from a deer. It's that time of year when they are everywhere. Deer season is just around the corner.

Received my first estimate today. There is more paint damage than I though. Estimate was just short of 1k.

LOL!! I thought I was the only one that had a deer run into my car.

A few years ago my wife and I bought a new van (got kid need van) and I was on my way home from work in the new van. I was sitting at a stop light and a deer running full speed slammed into the left finder and door. I'm glad I'm not the only one that the deer have eyes for.

Sorry to hear about your car though. It does stink!
