I haven't came up on a deer that wasn't salvageable yet, I have seen some in bad shape but most times that's deer hit by semi's in these cases I wont pick the deer up but when i hear a car vs deer come over the scanner I am on it.I am guessing that 80% of this bucks meat will be edible wont know until I skin him out 2moro but he has no broken legs which is a good sign.

Oh man, I have seen some completely obliterated carcasses on the road. I mean ground and smashed all over the place to the point where you can barely tell what it was. I see several per week on my way to/from work.
