I've seen a lot of dead deer on the road recently - more than I can recall ever seeing before.

I had a friend when I was in the military who we referred to as "The Deer Slayer." This guy has hit more deer with vehicles than anyone I've ever known. I don't know if it's because he always lived in areas with a heavy deer population, in addition to living on the outskirts and in rural areas, or just what the deal is, but his personal count is up somewhere around 12.

When we were stationed on Fort Myer, he owned a house clear out by Winchester, VA - he'd get up stupid early in the morning so he could make 0600 formation. One morning he gets in his little Ford Festiva commuter car, gets out to the end of his drive, looks down and sees that he's running low on gas, and that he doesn't have time to stop on his way in to Fort Myer to gas it up. He heads back to the house and jumps in his late 80s model Ford F350 Super Duty. This guy is also a country boy from North Carolina, so not only is this a big, heavy truck, but he's got it decked out with a lift kit, oversized wheels and tires, loud stereo with a bazooka subwoofer, etc. It was a BIG truck, complete with a personalized license plate that read "NO4NJNK" (No Foreign Junk)

So now he's running late and he's hauling ass up this little paved country road that runs past his house when he comes up over a rise and there's not one, not two, but three deer, standing right in the middle of the road. He rolled right over the top of them going about 60 mph, absolutely obliterating all three. The only damage to his truck was a somewhat bent front bumper on one side that he was able to pull out straight with a winch.

Deer Slayer was my Uncle's CB handle. He also had a very high kill ratio.

The truck Vs. deer thing happened to me on the PA Turnpike on Sidling Hill... It was foggy... I was eastbound at about 55-60... a small herd came across the interstate from the opposite side of the road... running at a gallop. The first one hit dead center in the bumper of my '72 TranStar. the rest went under the tractor and trailer tandems. All told... around 9 or 10 was what we counted... splattered all over the road and the four trucks that were following me.

It was a true bloody mess...

I'm guessing that they didn't need to be euthanized.
