ok i just got home... heres what happend:

I was crusin along at about 85-90... came up to pass some guy so i got into the left lane, well as i was right next to the guy while passing, i noticed a mangled deer ahead of me in my lane. I didnt actually hit it, some other guy took the liberty of doing that, but the entire back half of the deer was chillin in my lane... i couldnt go right cause the car i was passing was there, i couldnt go left cause the left shoulder wasnt big enough to give me the room, so i straddled the ****er. I paused my cd player went over it and heard... clunkclaunkclucankccluanck. Yeah, lots of clunkin around. Anyway, i looked at my car and as far as i can tell no damage yet... my front bumper cleared it so it didnt hurt that anymore then it already is... it was just freaky cause it was such a huge hunk of animal... im used to straddling coons or squirrels... not the entire back half of a fockin deer lol

i didnt break my front end... i saw the damn thing coming in my headlights so i hit the puase button to hear what kinda damage i was gunna take on.

And brandon, the head was gone... this was literally the rear end of the deer. There was an ass, some body and 2 legs with a furry white tail. Im guess a truck hit it or someting and took the other half with it lol

glad to see tha tyou are alright mike!

the springs are sent so if there is any suspension damage, wait for them to arrive and use the new springs. just think... if you were lowered right now you could be looking at hundreds in damages to your front valence. be glad they got lost!

pressure washer to the rescue!

me and my mom nearly got killed by a deer in pennsylvania. it jump cleanly over our hood. it was such a close call that the deer's hooves gently tapped the windshield. quite a memorable experience! that is a shame about your friend dangerdude. deer wrecks are so frustratingly pointless.

sorry to hear about your freind corey, thats very unfortunate.

As for the people that are telling me things like "I shouldnt have been going 90 on the interstate" and similar comments, give it a rest. I know for a fact im not the only one here that cruises on the interstate. I had be driving for 5 hours, it was 1045 at night, i was 30 miles from my house, and i was ready to just get home. If you've ever driven on an interstate in Iowa you might realize that the 65mph speed limit is just redicuolous. Theres nothing but flat straightaways across the entire state. There was hardly any traffic that late on a thursday night, and i wasnt even close to being out of control.

Dom, by having time to pause my cd player doesnt mean I have time to stop a 3100 lb vehicle going 90 mph within the distance of me seeing the deer and me being on top of the deer. Even if i did slam on the brakes the only thing that would have happend was id do a nice powerslide, my front end would dive to the ground and would have been taken off due to the lessened ground clearance.

It was weird because it all happened so fast but it felt like it was slow motion. I sat there and debated what i was going to do to avoid the thing, paused the player, braced for it, and went over the damn thing. Its hard to explain but it just felt like everything was thought out and i made the right choice.

once again, enough with the "you were going to fast" bullshit. We've all been there, dont act like you never have.

I understand, and your experience isn't uncommon. When you butt is on the line time seems to slow down and you have lot's of thoughts going on. Your brain sorts out the best option and you go for it.

I had a somewhat similar experience, though at slower speeds. This was back in 91 when I was in Memphis. I was driving down a freshly blacktopped state highway driving my 64 Chrysler. I was passing a car when we come over a slight rise, this way a two lane in my direction road. In my lane was something big and black. Dunno if it was a large dog or maybe a hog. Well it was night and if you ever drove a car with old sytle incandesant lights you'll know why I couldn't ID it. I couldn't go right, the other car was there. I couldn't go left, no should and a big old ditch. So I loosened my grip on the wheel, got off the gas and braced for impact. Whatever it was hit my bumper, bent it too, and bounced around under the car a few times. Lost my front plate too. Went back and couldn't find anything big enough to ID.

At that time I went thru a similar slow down process like you mentioned. My three passengers didn't though and I had three pucker marks in the upholstery that night. Never saw a Marine that scared before or since, lol.
