I certainly don't recommend that you attempt this at home, so take my word that vehicular damage from hitting a deer at speed is often catastrophic. Ours wasn't, for which I am eternally grateful. The photos show the visible damage. Purists can add at least a front wheel alignment to the mix.
We cracked a headlight, bent the hood, have a dent in driver's side fender, and have half a barrel of deer feathers stuck in every seam on the left side of the car.
If I were footing the bill, I'd likely cry a tear or two, utter an oath, and ignore the damage. After visiting the body shop I'm more likely to say "here is an estimate for $3000, send the check to me." What a sick world.
