The day before last I struck a deer with my car. I was going about 40mph and had no time at all to react. By the time my foot hit the brake, the deer was behind me having been thrown over the car. It took off back into the woods. It was smallish, I would guess it was a yearling doe. Today the insurance inspector will tell me how much the damage to my car will cost. There were a few hairs of the deer stuck between the fender and the headlight, but there was no blood on the car. My guess is $2000. I imagine the deer soon after lay down to die. I work just north of Princeton, NJ and I drive a long way on rural roads. I have come close to hitting deer many times, but this is the first time I hit one. I see carcasses along the way all the time though. A few years back there was a kill in Princeton to reduce the size of the herd. It was an issue that split the town pretty good. Anyone else here hit a deer with their car?
