hit a deer last night

So I was driving home from work last night and took a back road to avoid traffic on the interstate and sure enough a deer runs out in front of me :/

Re: hit a deer last night

I waited 9 months for my car to arrive after I ordered it, had it a couple of months and I hit a big buck...

Man I know that sucked! I had a buddy come get the deer I hit, he dressed out at 150lbs. Didn't burst his bladder so dude cooked it and we ate him! Instant gratification! I have part of his antler somewhere too.

I hope you at least got to eat it and keep the antlers.

Nice! That sucks about the car, but hey if it had to happen at least you got something in return. Venison tastes good when it's cooked right. especially when mixed in with a little lean ground beef. Venison Burgers.

Sorry about the car. It's not too bad. Damn things are stupid-and eat my up all my gardens. Them and the stupid Rabits.

Man if werent for bad luck then I don't think you'd have any at least you're okay and the car is fixable.

Yea deer suck, they are good to eat tho. Just a pain in the a$$ to deal with right now tho bc my baby was born yesterday so now getting the car fixed is put on hold until later. Think ill need a new hood or will the auto shop probably try to fix mine?

I doubt they try to fix it. It would take too much time. There is good news to that if you are wanting something like a carbonfiber hood now is the time.
BTW congrats on the Baby.
