Glad your husband is okay. Just saw a story on the news about deer and how many people hit them and they gave the worst states. Thank the Good Lord your husband came through okay. My prayers are with you.

It is a real shame you don't eat deer.  I would love to get the backstrap if he was that big.  I used to hunt but since I broke my back at work I can do practically nothing anymore.  It is a painful effort just to cook and bake but that issomething I am not willing to give up yet.  Well it's time for another pain pill, see ya'll later...

Thank God, your husband is ok. Sorry to hear about the car and the deer.

My husband hit a deer several years ago.  I was in the car with him.  Thank God we were ok.  The car was not so great though!

Glad your husband is fine.  It happens all the time around here from fall until spring.  They are so very quick its hard to avoid them sometimes.

Here in rural Minnesota if you hit one and don't want the meat local butchers will process it and it is given to the local food shelf to be distributed.
