My sad saga

So ... my friends wanted me to take some photos of my FR-S in some scenic setting. I get my car washed and drive to a beautiful lake near my house and meet this young deer with my right front corner. At least they gave me a good rental until it comes back from the body shop (3 - 4 weeks with luck).
Guess how much time I spent stomping around and cursing. More damn deer in rural NC than people sometimes.

Are you serious about getting an R8 for a rental?

I retired after 25 years of handling automobile insurance claims. I've never known of a persons rates going up because of a comprehensive claim.

OK, ya got me. It's a neighbor's R8. Would have been nice. Instead I have the car of my dreams, a Chevy Impala. And no, I've been told that my insurance rates won't go up, despite the deer being uninsured.

I ask because in FL we don't have deer. Panthers and Alligator are what we watch for but mostly in the Everglades

Google "Key Deer"

I've seen a number offroading and in the keys, they are almost never in cities unlike the midwest though.

Looks like it will be easier to black out your headlights now.

Large protein mass just below smashed headlight and medium sized stain on passenger side glass (when doe bounced off windshield in slow motion and then flew over roof).
No structural damage - lots of body work needed. Just hope it doesn't take longer than the 30 days of insurance-paid car rental. We'll see.

Isn't deer hunting season over already? Sad to see another white car crashed.

I've got a tiger & lion restoration center near me, so large felines feasted on my dead deer.

I guess I'm the only one who would be more sad about killing a deer than the damage on the car

And yes, I've actually seen deer in the everglades, US41 in route to Naples. I believe they even have deer signs in the area.
