Blasted Deer

My roommates and I went bowling tonight here in Spearfish. I drove the Camaro, and something less than stellar happened on the way home. I was crawling along at ~25mph(speed limit here in town), and I see some deer on the side of the road. I slow down to 20 and creep by them. Well...one of them had it out for me...the deer have joined the ****ed Animal Conspiracy! Lo and behold, WHAM! One of the little ______(insert any profane word that you feel fits here) ran into the side of the Camaro. Put a fair sized dent right behind the passenger door. No damage to the paint...just a basketball sized dent, and the glass in the mirror broke. I stopped and got out to see what the little ____(insert same profane word here) was doing. It was kicking around in the road, but managed to get to its feet and sprint off into the woods. I don't have my camera up here, but I'll get pics on Friday.

The Animal Conspiracy is growing in numbers, and if we aren't careful they are going to strike again!

The Camaro:

oh awesome car! ill take it, dent or not LOL
we have deer that come down to the street I live on in winter and (its a long road with no lights.... no places for cops to park and a great place to speed at bout 60... when the limit is 20) anyways, in the winter you have to be careful cause they are ALWAYS down at the road
sorry about your car though... it sucks when stuff like that happens. My friends mom backed into my car a couple months ago and sounds like we had about the same amount of damage delt to our cars. its sucks

You are very lucky! I see deer hits much much worse. That dent is easy to fix.

I sure hope it is. Replacing a complete rear fender would be no cheap venture.

So... they can run into the side of a car. I always wondered about that.

BTW, I put those $9 whistles on the front of my cars. I've seen them get out of or further away when I get near. Dunno. I've heard tell of folks with the whistles hitting them too.

A Camaro w/ deer whistles...that'd look interesting. With questionable affectiveness, I'll take my chances.

They wouldn't fit in those 3 black grill spaces? maybe they aren't tall enuf?

Heck, for $9, I'd take my chances that they work at least sometime.

The gaps in the grill are actually deceivingly small. I can barely get my hand in each one, and I'm kind of a small guy.
