I have to say i am impressed with the general lack of damage. I was going probably 50+ when I hit it. The deer slid about 150ft down the road after I hit it. No, I didn't keep it. I don't like venison that much. But some guy stopped and asked if he could take it. He waited for the cop and got the permit, and threw the deer into the backseat of his car!
All the headlight and grill supports are bashed out and the fender rubs on the door a little bit now. I think the radiator was close to being punctured, the fins are messed up in a few spots. I called my insurance, its not even a collision claim, its comprehensive! I am hoping that means my rates wont go up, or at least not as much as if it were a collision claim. I just have to take it to a shop on their list and they will fix it. I don't have to mess with getting estimates or anything.
Just for the heck of it I went to a place and got an estimate...$3534.28
I'm not sure how State Farm computes it, but the average retail on NADA is $6900, so there is a chance it could get totaled.
