    With the amount of rural driving here in WI we're doing it was bound to happen. Wife's ok.

    Wife was driving 55mph almost 3pm on a sunny day. Didn't even see the deer before it came out just in front of her.

    For clarification:: This is the after pic and also note the poop on the back door is from the deer.

    The car guy/hunter in me wants to say that's the best use of a mini van I've seen yet.

    In all seriousness glad nobody was injured.

    Other than eating them, I hate those bastards. I hit one going 30 in my wife's Civic at night. Never saw it. The only reasons I knew it was a deer, I saw a herd of them in the rear view mirror, and when I got home there was a deer head imprint on the hood - complete with tongue sticking out. $3500 later, car was as good as new - gag.

    I have always been told that there are two types of drivers here in WI --- those who have collided with a deer and those who will be colliding with a deer.

    Usually best to just hit the brakes and run into the beast rather than try to avoid it and hit something more solid.

    Glad to read that your wife is OK!

    Lol. Truth. I was heading home one night, three deer across the road with not enough distance to avoid clipping one of them. Ironically it was in Gurnee though, headed back to Wisconsin. I was lucky enough to avoid every deer in WI.
