Got me a deer while I was going home last night. Took a pic of the damage this morning at work. It looked worse when the smashed headlights were still dangeling in there.

Thats not to hard to fix, iv helped replace the Header panel and lights before on my Bros Wifes 94 GC

ITs like $100-150 in parts. not to bad, and if you dont want to you dont have to replace the hood, should be able to bend it back.

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.

Glad you made it out of it okay. Sorry for the Jeep, but it should be back together in no time.

As far as the deer in the back seat? lol that reminds me of that movie where the deer came back alive. I want to say it was a Chris Farley movie? I forget, but funny as heck none the less.
