That was me on Sunday. Luckily the damn thing cleared my van. Happens so fast one can't react. I got lucky! C5 driver, not so much.

Lucky it was a smaller one.

I saw photos of a C4 with the roof basically ripped off after hitting one.

I've managed to hit/kill two in my life (first was on my birthday ). I'm so happy none in the Vette yet but tons of close calls. Deer are everywhere here in Iowa.

If you are a deer hunter like me, deer respect you and never jump in front of your car!

I hit one in a Ranger once. Clipped his back end, he spun around in the road next to me. By the time I stopped, he'd already run off. No damage to my truck either. I didn't hit him fast, since his two deer buddies had already run across. He obviously was the loser in 'frogger' that night.

This is really the thing that worries me most while motorcycle riding. I can avoid most of the idiot drivers but you are screwed if that happens.....
