Deer vs Car ... It's That Time of Year Again

Last Saturday as I was driving to Eagle Creek to meet up with some birders that are new to the area, I had a little accident. As I was driving down the road, I was suddenly struck by something on the drivers side of my car. It turns out that a deer actually ran into the side of my car! It must have jumped at the last second since its front hooves landed on my hood and one of them actually left a hoof print on the hood!

The deer actually ended up running off but my car did not come out unscathed. There is actually $3,200 in damage and it will take over a week to fix once the shop gets the parts in. Luckily we have good insurance!

Tomorrow my wife and I will be participating in the Ohio Young Birders Club Conference in Columbus, Ohio. I can't wait to hear all of the wonderful presentations that the young birders have put together!

...glad the hoof didn't go through the window. That might have ended very badly for you! Glad you were safe.
