    Shit happens in the forest. Even when you aren't there.

    I hit a fully grown fallow deer stag (braking from 65mph) on the front right side in my Landrover. The noise the animal made was horrible. It was thrown into the opposite ditch and died a few minutes later.
    The Landrover needed a bit of work too.

    2008 GMC work truck with almost 200,000 miles...looks almost identical to this. I just had the first real work was completed.
    The engine mounts needed replacing, but no troubles up to this point. Regular oil changes and brake jobs, I do myself.

    Be glad you don't have moose. You tend to chop the legs out from under them as they fall through the windshield. You do generally get to go really fast in an ambulance afterwards, so at least you have that going for you.

    Moose/car collisions are no joke:

    Even happens with a pickup, unless you have a big lift kit.

    That it would. I should buy a big D.O.T. snowplow to drive.

    We have a 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe and a 2012 Genesis. Will be ditching the Gennie for a Lexus LC500. The Santy will likely become a Lexus as well. Still need the SUV for gigs.
    Stock photos.

    I wish that was the case. I had a 379 Peterbilt hauling rocks around and one night on my way home wacked a large 10 point buck. Took out the charge air cooler, grill, headlight and fender. $2300 later I was back on the road. A moose probably would've totalled the truck. You'd be surprised how fragile a big truck can be.

    In the late 70’s coming across
    Interstate 10 in Texas , I cut a mule deer in half with the bumper of a 1972 KW cabover, had to stop another trucker to help pull my bumper out of the tire.
    The deer had decided to go just as I came up on it!
    Where I am living now people have been killed by hitting the wild burros in a place called Reche canyon!
    Cheers Mitch
