I did most of the body work myself. Got replacement bumper, grill, hood, fender, right light, and blinker. A little hammer work and it look pretty good. Since it is my work truck I am getting it painted at Maaco. The one in Fresno has a pretty good team so I am been told.
Our insurance just gave me a check for the damages, said I could go anywhere or fix it myself. I already had a few bids and the Alstate adjuster was spot on with his appraisal.
My wifes cars has more damage. I doubt I can do the work, won't even try. Her deer did the same damage as mind, but pushed the fender back into the passenger door, plus it cracked the windshield.
You are correct, the deer really ran into us, there was no reaction time. Both were DOA.
