In Colorado, if you kill a deer, you get to keep it. There's a form you have to fill out within 48 hours at the Sherriff's office, but it's free venison. There are also volunteers who clean up deer for the highway department. In Durango, the jail got the meat, and the volunteer gets to keep like 25%. Damned prisoners got to eat venison stew.

I once hit two elk with my 1970 Scout. The whole damned herd ran across the road and I stood on the brakes and aimed for the thin spot. One slid down the road and the other did a spin. I jumped out, knife at the ready, but they both got up and ran off. I was only going about 35, so they just put out the headlight. Thank you, brush guard.

Another time I was driving in a snowstorm with some friends. I made a joke about the guy in the back seat, glanced at him to gauge his reaction, and when I looked back there was a HUGE bull elk (like the Hartford commercials, antlers and all) in the center of the road. I hit the brakes a bit hard and went into a flat spin (Mayday! Mayday!). Somehow we didn't flip but ended up sliding right past the damned thing at 90 degrees, staring at it staring at us. The elk turned around, still looking at us. I was a bit pissed, so I cranked up the Scout and started chasing him. He ran off the road and jumped a fence. I turned back around and we drove off. Very surreal. After about five minutes of dead silence, the guy in back asked, "Did that just happen?"

True story... A friend of mine was driving in northern Illinois when some kamikaze deer hit her car. Again... the deer hit her car, not the other way around. Even put a dent in the side. Deer walked it off, but my friend was pretty shaken up.

So what'd us losers in IS do? We got a 1ft. high wooden deer and decorated it... gave it a cast on it's leg, little fake blood, little white paint on its head... and gave it to her as a gift. That was like 6 years ago. I think she still has it. Ah memories.

damn MSIE ate my comments.

anyway short version:

I've hit 3, first one almost killed me.

I'd agree that hitting them isn't good for people.

Statusquo: Be very, very glad the cop didn't pull you over for a speeding ticket!

Last spring I moved into the country -- have a long driveway up a hill. Came up the drive after a hard night of partying and found an elk standing across the driveway -- blocked the whole thing. Just sat there looking at me. I love wildlife, but that was farking annoying...
