Hey robin those bumpers are plastic- YouTube it it's an easy fix.. dump boiling water on it to soften plastic and press it our from the back side. Save the $500

It’s one thing for me to post it, entirely different for someone else to do it. Besides, I’m older now and could care less, lol

It always sucks when ya hit a deer, but I've gotta say, if you've gone 40 years without hitting one....youve been pretty lucky.

That's the most expensive deer you will ever kill, when I hit mine it was $5,500.00

Damn, sorry to hear.  Glad you’re ok.  I hit a deer last week, cracked my bumper and knocked out turn signal bulb.  Not worth the deductible to fix in my case.  I just replaced the broken bulb myself.  Good luck with your repairs!

The insurance company told me that I would not have to get an estimate if I took it to one of their approved repair shops, so next Thursday, the shop is picking up my truck and doing the repair work.

Yep I know how you feel. I've done it twice!!!

Sorry about that . . . 40 years driving and I've only had one minor accident, backed into another vehicle as I was pulling out of a parking space.  This is my first deer hit . . .

I just bought a new truck as well. every morning I almost hit a deer driving to work. Im going to camp out world near jugtown mountain this weekend to look at brush guards. I just want something where the guard will take most of the impact if I were to hit a deer.

When I hit my first one the insurance adjuster said he was only going to take pictures of the damage on my front fender but will estimate it to cover all repairs. I center punched an 8 pointer with the front of my truck. When I questioned him on why, he said if I hit the deer it was my fault and it wouldn’t be covered. If the deer hit the side of my truck then it was the deer’s fault and was covered. Gotta love insurance companies! 🤬 Worst part was after the deer got his senses back he jumped up and ran away. I never found him. Only thing I got was a piece of antler that broke off when it stuck into my radiator causing a giant hole.

Good that he worked with you.  I have collision regardless of fault, but the deer did hit the front corner of my truck.  It's going in on Thursday.

Sorry that the deer messed up your truck, but glad that you and your daughter didn't get hurt. Here's hoping it gets fixed in no time.
