First deer of 2015!!!
« on: February 23, 2015, 05:18:00 PM »
Jen was coming home from the hospital (she works in the ER) this morning, at 5 a.m. and a deer/doe decided to play chicken with her Toyota Camry.  

Toyota Camry was the winner.  No damage to Jen or the Camry.

Deer ran off. Jen went to sleep.

When I got off work, we both set out to see IF we could find it.   About 2:30 we found her on a frozen creek (about 200 yards in).   Temps were in the low 30's today.

Called Virginia Game and got permission to move and process her.   Jen is a happy girl for the additional venison!!!

P.S.  About 5 years ago, this same Camry was surprised to see a small buck jump in front of it (east side of West Point) while driving at 55 mph.   Deer died on the  spot.  Camry had $1500.00 in damage.  No damage to Jen.

Glad she wasn't hurt.

Yes, yes she did!  No real damage to to talk of on the outside of the deer, but a true mess to the rib cage inside. So, I guess that makes it a clean shot to boiler room!
