    Truck: 1 Deer: 0

    About a mile outside the University of Maine campus, hit a buck about 250. I was doing about 40.

    Damn, no good guy. I was wondering looking at the first link how you hit a deer with the side of your truck, but then realized after looking through your front drives side got smashed too. Thing is, those bastards don't have insurance to pay for it, so there goes your insurance hiking up Mount Everest.

    Man that really does suck, I hate to see anyone's ride get messed up. But on the plus side if there is one, it didn't mess up your grill which I have to say is pretty tight.
