Deer Season, Part Deux

A week ago, I got a big surprise when a young buck jumped into my headlights at a range of about 10 feet. My Blazer took some damage but was still drivable; the deer did not dare as well.
We got the call from the body shop, and it looks like a hefty $2,100 tab to replace the grill and a headlight, untwist the bumper, and replace the hood. What surprised me was that the insurance company decided to fix it, since the truck is 11 years old.
One piece of good news out of this incident - someone got some nice venison out of it. I spoke with our friendly neighborhood police officer, and he tells me that the carcass was gone pretty quickly.
