Our whole family was in the car. We were thankful that only the deer got hurt (pretty much knocked his back end off.) There was nothing I could do. Now I know to aim for the deer when it's inevitable that something has to give.

First deer of the season
I finally got my first deer, and I didn't even fire a shot. We hit one about 100-110 lbs. on NC 96 north of Oxford yesterday just above Roy Laney's. I didn't know that hitting a deer did not make your car insurance go up in NC until today. If I had missed the deer and hit the ditch and wrecked, it would have been a one-car collision and would have affected the premiums. The agent said, "ALWAYS hit the deer. Always." the damage estimate is $2025.00. The whole front end was affected.
