    200 pound RAT ran into me AGAIN!

    I HATE F'N DEER! For the 3rd time in 2 years I got hit by a deer. Well, I hit a deer one time and 2 times they hit me. This morning I came around a bend around 5am and 2 deer were starting to cross the road. I slowed quickly and tapped the horn hoping to scare them off which usually works. The one finished crossing and the other looked like he was headed back into the woods but as I crept by the stupid deer decided to cross and ran into the rear right door. I heard a pretty good thump and the car shook. I waited to get to the train station to check out the damage and it isn't too bad. There is about an 18" crack along the bottom of the door and another about 8" above that one maybe 12". I didn't have time to take pics my train was on the platform. I think in better light I will see a depression from the ******* deer. Moments like this really make me want to take up hunting!

    No matter what the damage I will not get it fixed, so it will be just another battle scar on the old tank!

    I'll post some pictures tonight after I get home.

    Not to jack your thread Slip, but I almost hit an OWL sitting in my lane last night. Think the hard rain downed him, he just sat there looking at me when I got out. If I hadn't been slowing down to turn into driveway I would have smoked him(or her). Took a few minutes to get it to fly off. This was moments after narrowly missing a huge possum... damn thing is as big as my dog. Full moon last night and freaky stuff going on...
    Got any pics yet?

    A deer is the reason I got a Deville D'Elegance, I used to have a 06 Charger R/T and loved that car, but a deer ended its life and I then purchased a 98 Deville D'Elegance with 62k and love it, does not have the HEMI power or handling of the Charger but its far nice and seems to be a better build quality over all. I learned a hard lesson that night, when I drive in rural areas I slow it down big time... I just wish deer would use the cross walks!
