This morning I woke up bright and early to this creature.
Oh and this one…. (there were 2 big bucks within 15 feet of each other)
There were also a couple of does.
Isn't this an awesome animal? They were only about 20 feet from the back of our house.
I saw one of them while making breakfast. I went over to our back doors to see him better and he looked up at me, like he knew I was looking at him.
See you later deer….
It was 4 years ago today when I met one of these little boogers on I-35 going around 70 miles an hour. Every October I think.. about deer .. here's why.
#1 and I were headed home from a fun evening in Kansas City when
out of NO WHERE a HUGE deer was standing in front of my car.
I swerved to miss it.. but hit the front passengers side corner and the deer flew around and it's antlers hit the passenger window where #1 was sitting.
Immediately after the collision #1 started yelling.. "I CAN'T BREATHE!
I CAN'T BREATHE!" I tried to explain to her that she was talking..
so she was breathing.. but it didn't help. 😉
The repairs were almost $15,000 and took 6 weeks to complete…
I think it took so long because of the kind of car it was..
The deer of course didn't make it.. but the next day while it was going
to the shop I got to tell a guy I got a "14 point buck" at Casey's. He was not so
impressed when it found out it was with my car.
