One had the intestines out,but not broke. I will find out tomorrow if they are salvageable. They better be,cause I'm thinking the truck is a write off.

You did your fellow man a huge favor and you might have saved some lives. Hope this will help you feel a little better.
Deer are more of a danger to drivers around here than just about anything that I can think of.

Most of the time any deer that has been victim of a vehicle hit is dog food.  Get to much blood in the meat.  Need to be gutted right away to start with and start to get them cooled down.  Hard to see in the fog regardless what they are doing, standing running or walking.  Got to watch for that horizontal line.

I'll give the same advice I gave a gal at work after her 2nd incident in 2 months; "You need to invest in a big push bar."

Depending on how those push bara are mounted they can cause more damage to the truck than without. Seen a guy mount one of those cheap Weston bars to his truck. He was bragging about how deer wont be a problem.

He Hit a deer a few months later on the left side. The bar bent back onto his truck busted the all the lights both sides, grill, bumper, hood and bent up where the bar mounted into the frame. Nearly totaled his truck

"You need to invest in a big push bar."

 

And I know a guy who put one on his 3/4 ton Dodge 4x4. He was in the double digits on deer strikes when he traded vehicles and only went to the body shop once. Deer came out of the ditch and hit the side of the truck.  We call them cattle guards and his might have been top quality .

The only time anyone of us has hit one with the front of a vehicle was my mom with a '96 Subaru legacy wagon, deer came up on the hood, very minor damage, deer walked away, mom drove home, never fixed dents, sold car a year later.  My dad had one run into the side of his truck not even a month after putting it on the road, dent in the door was only damage, never fixed as the truck while licensed "commercial" is mainly used as a farm truck.  Comp/collision insurance in this area will double your insurance due to deer, I don't have it on my truck as with 174000 miles and some rust they would just total it anyway.
