I seem to have a penchant for killing critters with my vehicles, so i thought i would share. dozens of doves...about 12-15 quail....2-3 housecats ...lots of rabbits....4 coyotes... and 1 javelina/with my honda goldwing, and some snakes, at least 5 rattlers, this is over 35 years of driving. anyone else out there have this problem?

When I was driving truck, every time I went thru Wisconsin, I would hit a Turkey. Every time. That is no exageration. If I went into Wisconsin a turkey died. Never killed one with a gun, but plenty with a Freightliner. Other than that 1 groundhog, and a squirrel, thats with 35 years of driving, and several million miles.

I had a hot little 65 falcon when I was a teenager., Flying over antelope hill between Mayer and Cleater I hit a jack rabbit at about 65 mph. Caught him right on the corner of the right front fender. Pushed the fender back into the door and jammed the door. Looked more like I hit a deer than a jack. Fuggered my car up real good.

All I remember is a German Shepherd and a few rabbits.

I have to laugh at the way cottontails will run to get out of the way, make it to safety with room to spare, then get scared and run back in front of the car again and get nailed. Rabbits are the very definition of "mind numbing fear."

Del's post reminded me, I hit a flock of an Amishmans ducks once. Ol Troy and I were headed back to camp, I was going a little faster than was prudent, came around a corner and there was about 8-10 ducks coming across the road. The amishman was herding em like goats. Feathers flew, ducks squawked, and the tires went bump, bump. I mashed the gas and kept on going. Last thing I seen in my mirror was an Amishmen shaking his fist at me.

My buddy whacked a turkey that flew across the road, going full bore in his new suburban. Right square in the windshield.

Took it to the auto glass joint and they told him ... "We got your windshield replaced, but we couldn't get that brown stain out of your seat"
