Deer have to be the dumbest animals alive. If they were to become extinct I don't think I would ever miss one. Their only purpose of existance is to feed other animals and to made into jerkey.Godzuki said:I'm instrument and multi-engine rated. Havent been flying much in the last 2 yrs. No time and other interests.
But I did hit a deer while taking off some years ago in our 79 Piper Seminole. Saw it run across the runway and just pulled back. Front strut smacked it and screwed up the nose gear. After 2 hrs of circling to burn off fuel, had to belly land in a field next to the airport. Lots of screaming from Kelley and our friends (who never been in a plane in their life) during that time. That was the last plane I owned. Every so often I'll rent one to get some hours in, but nothing like I did before. Kelley wont even get in a small plane anymore.
