?Don't laugh, I had a deer hit the Fiero the other day! I slowed for the first one and had I stayed on the brakes, I would have hit the second?deer and messed up the front end of the car. So I let off the brakes and the deer hit me with only a small break in the plastic by the rear marker light. Had it been my Corvair, there would have been a big dent there. And I'm in Michigan!

Ken, have you tried this?  http://www.deerwhistle.com/  Freeze them in
their tracks, so they can't hit you.

Just wondering, if they jump out from BEHIND a STOP sign, how fast were
you going?

I should mention that now that we have 3 or 5 zingy street cars, we find

that there are so many deer standing in the middle of the nice twisty
of Iowa .... that we are now afraid to go more than about 46 mph... day
night..... you don't just hit the deer, they jump out from behind a stop

sign and HIT YOU !!

Might have to rent a  race track to find a safe place to play boy racer
