Four deer and still no significant damage

Yes, I hit another deer :cry: That's two in a little over a month and three in a year. Actually the deer ran into the left side, so the only damage is my fender is no longer there and the wheel cover is cracked. I'm beginning to think that silver Insights make some sort of sound that attracts deer :!: The damages have been: $850, $1257, and this time will probably be around $1000. Two of the three deer have survived. I just filled up my tank and drove home and got the best mileage(75MPG) I've gotten in a while in this cold weather we've been having. I've been struggling to hit 60MPG. Is it possible the aerodynamics of the car are better with the fender gone :?:

Hmmm, maybe a headlight upgrade would help? A drop in (real) HID retrofit would run you about $400, but at the rate your paying for repairs it might give you enough time to react. The main advantage is that you get a lot more light immediately to the sides of the car and the beams will extend a lot futrher and the whiter light will probably help you see faint things a lot sooner. Also, on things like signs they glow in HID light, maybe Deer eyes will be noticable from futrher away?

Just some suggestions. I know nothing about avoiding deer. I live many hours away from where there would even be a living deer.
