Buddy of mine outwest said they had a problem with them on base and humvees, so they started using Armored Security Vehicles to literally push the stubborn animals off the road. 15 tons vs 1-2 tons..

They are quite oranery. Here, they have the "right of way" in town. If one starts walking out in the middle of the road, which they do frequently and take their sweet time there is nothing you can do about it.

Yeah, moose VS car, the moose usually wins. Cars are low enough that when you hit them it knocks their legs out from under them and they land on the roof of the car. Let'* just say it'* not a pretty sight when that happens. There are times where even after an accident, they get up and walk away.

A Deer on the other hand, it'* a 50/50 chance, lol.

I'll stick with the deer vs. car. That is bad enough. You could put a saddle on one of those and ride it to work everyday to save on gas usage
