Default deer vs R/T

driving into work this morning, and out of nowhere a deer jumps right into the side of my truck. It takes out my side mirror puts a dent in my pillar behind the door and puts this huge dent into my bed. it also rips my rear tail light out. fortunately the door was completely unharmed besides where the side mirror hit the lower window seal and put a gouge in it.

Yikes!

That's an impressive amount of damage for a deer side impact! I'm guessing it was a good sized one. Hope you at least get to keep the deer. After doing that to your truck, it should repay you by filling the freezer.

Ouch that sucks man, i'd say your pretty lucky that you didn't hit it head on. With that much damage on the side you would have likely had the deer right there in the cab with you.

the deer kept on running, i didn't even get to see it. i would of thrown it in the back if i found it. I'm sure it didn't live to much longer after that hit. i have to wait until Thursday to have insurance come out to write an estimate up. But my good friend works at the body shop I'm taking it to so it will be better than new when its all said and done.

Thank God you are ok. Metal can be fixed , there's only one you.
My brother ran into a deer with a Geo Metro of all things - it tried to jump
over the car and slammed into the hood. After a new hood and air cleaner
it was like new. The deer continued on into the woods...

Wow...that really sucks! I had one scramble up over top of my car years ago when I lived in Wyoming...up on the hood, over the roof and down the backside across the trunk lid.

Explaining that one that I got run over by a deer (vs me running over a deer) was a funny thing to do with the insurance agent.

It may survive with a lot of bruising. I don't see any blood on your truck.....not that it would stand out.
