A "Caption Needed" Two-fer ! !

While I'm on a hunting theme, I just had to post these two pictures. How did the deer manage to not take out the grill? Do any of you know what actually happened? I sure hope no one was sitting on the passenger side........

Anyhow, I couldn't come up with a good caption, so I'm throwing it out for those of you far better at coming up with good captions than I am! Have at it!

Elementary, my dear Watson, the deer was in mid-jump when struck by the Dakota.

If this occurred at night, which is likely, dispite the daylight photo, all the driver had to do was turn his lights out for one second and the deer would have safely run off the road.

I've saved probably 5 vehicles from crashes by doing that. When I lived in the Upper Peninsula of MI, I used to see deer on about every other trip to town from my remote home.

I've heard of dogs surfing and pigs racing.


Go Figure!

If the deer jumped into the passenger side windshield head first, what put the dent on the driver's side roof?

You sure that's a deer, and not a ram.

Yeah, I know.

I would say that the roof damage ocurred when the startled driver ran under a vehicle such as a hay wagon or a logging truck, but that's just a guess. The damage resembles that of a roll-over, but there is no side damage, so I would have to say it's a run-under.

There's one other possibility: that someone on the other side of the freeway hit the deer, launched it, and the Dakota ran into it as part of a multi-vehicle wreck. Could get complicated to analyze.

Oops, one other possibility: the Dakota driver just bagged the deer (or picked up a fresh road kill), and was driving it out of the woods draped over his hood, which limited his visibility, and he had a wreck, ass-ending the above hay truck or log truck.

Caption: Hal was momentarily chagrined to find that he had completely overshot the ram's head emblem at which he had been aiming. But only momentarily.

I'll need to dig to find it but I have the original story from this with more pictures that show what really happened. The deer was on an overpass and jumped over the side fence when traffic approached on the bridge. There is a good shot from in front of the Dodge looking back at the bridge. The driver escaped with minor injuries.
