Take a few minutes to look at pictures posted of vehicles that have hit a deer and you will see that these brush guards are worse than having nothing at all as they toss the animal up and then it hits the windshield. I would rather have the damage to the grill and radiator than to myself and my passenger. But the brush guards look cool when the truck is sitting at Wal-Mart.

Spend some time actually driving thru the Deer Capitol of the World. Real world experience trumps pictures and assumptions.

In other words....if the conditions are present for the carcass to roll up over the hood, it makes no difference if the guard is there or not.
Deer tend to leap in their strides when spooked.

Also, hitting deer at night?
You weren't driving fast enough.
