I purchased my brand new 2006 Tacoma on 12-15-05. Less than 3 days later, Saturday evening, I vaporized a deer on the right front fender. After pounding the fender that sucker ricocheted forward came back and hit the grill! Insurance Co. is currently balking at replacing parts, they want to bend back the radiator support beam rather than torch it off and weld another on. Over 3k in damage so far. Any suggestions regarding the radiator support beam would be greatly appreciated ......I'm going to therapy now. Thanks, -flatbroke ...in Wisconsin
For those intested in what a Wisconsin deer does to a 2006 Taco, I have pics, not sure how to upload.
damn deer, they are just as stupid here in oklahoma too, my cousin just got hios truck a few years back, and was driving at night and nailed on, took off his whole front bumper, took out a headlight, but he picked that deer up and threw it in the back and took it to get the meat off it new way to go huntin a guess lol
Hey Flatbroke, sorry to hear about that. Keep fighting those insurance jerks and hopefully they'll take care of things.
Hi Elwinna, what about those Keys deer down around Big Pine? Saw some this year while driving to Key West and they're neat looking little deer.
I guess there are a lot more deer than there used to be and a lot more people, too. So that makes encounters more common, I guess. I'm not a hunter, but maybe they should prolong the hunting season or allow even more liberal bag limits in order to thin out these out-of-control herds.
