Yeah, I just reread my earlier post and realized it reads like I wouldn't even try to avoid an animal. Not true at all. I would do everything possible WITHOUT endangering myself or others so as NOT to hit the animal in question. The three times I did hit deer and total my cars, I was dive bombed from the side of the road. Twice they jumped from hills next to the road, and I never saw anything until my headlights were blown out. The other was during a snowstorm, and I actually wasn't driving. My friend, who was giving me a ride home, swerved sharply with a couple inches of snow on the road, lost control, spun out and went cruising into the ditch backwards at 50 mph. THAT is why I don't do anything drastic to miss animals....
