    Trying to find out some info about the deer guard that Prime uses on their trucks. I seem to remember hearing awhile back that they made them in-house and would sell to a outside buyer. Anyone have knowledge of this.

    Truck 2 and 3 have them but I don't know who the manufacturer is.

    You can get a Bambi basher at a truckstop for like $500.

    Wouldn't drive a truck today without one. I remember, when they 1st came out, I asked a driver how it worked. He said, he hadn't hit a deer yet, but was kind of looking forward to it. :biggrin_2559: There are so many deer in Colorado, they few natural enemies and breed like rats, and the "tree-hugging PITA activists" won't let you shoot them. "Aw, aren't they cute"? Until one customizes THEIR front end.

    I'm curious if anyone hitting one field dresses it and takes it with them.

    Same here... But these days, it’s not just deer clogging the highways that we need to worry about!

    They are buying them instead of making them now. I don't know what brand. They talked about it in one of those YT videos but I don't remember which one it was.

    You're not suppose to hit a deer. You should swerve left or right and put the truck in the ditch, right ?

    In most states that's illegal. The states that I know about, its illegal... not allowed.
