Never realized how quick it can happen and how big some of the Island bucks actually are!!! Last night about 8pm on the way from painters to Courtenay just past the CR airport a large buck jumped the concrete centre median and threw a totally illegal and uncalled for body slam on my poor volkswagon. Unbelievably we were not hurt and I was able to drive it slowly home. Whether the old Volks gets by the ICBC adjuster and gets to drive again is another matter. I'm hoping the deer survived-he did make it off the road and out of the ditch. fingers crossed.
