Sir, the dumpster in question was angled (4ish feet to 6ish feet).

We couldn't pull all the stuff out to properly search the back of the dumpster.

Early 1990s, MI Wing SAR Academy, we had a C/Capt who had run into town (5-6 miles away) to call his parents. He took another cadet officer along with him in his quite stylish Chevette.

Another officer and I were at the SAR Academy to instruct, not to participate, so we were staying at my mom's house 12-15 miles away. Hot showers, etc (IMHO, the *best* way to do SAR Academy, but I digress)  We were getting ready to head out for the night and hanging with the senior staff while the students were clearing the camp area of debris and such.

We're sitting in the staff tent shooting the breeze with the commander of the school and the remainder of the staff when the C/Capt pokes his head into the senior tent (mind you: just his head thru the tent flap, nothing else. This disembodied head appears in the doorway.. I almost jumped about 4 ft in the air)

"Uhhh, sir?  I, uh, I hit a deer."

One of the officers, not realizing it was the C/Capt who had driven into town, says "What, with a stick of something?"

"Uh, no sir. My car."

It was like someone ran 110v thru all of us as we jumped to our feet. "What? Where?"

"Out on the road, sir, I think I hurt it pretty bad."

The entire senior staff all look at each other. "Well, hell, I think we gotta put it out of its misery!"

It was a headlong dash for just about every member of the senior staff to get to vehicles and head out to the collision site.   The C/Capt had left the other cadet officer with the deer while he drove back to camp to let someone know.

We all roar up to the site of the collision and the other cadet is standing there by the side of the road in his jungle fatigues, no deer in sight.

"Where is it?"

The cadet shrugs his shoulders "I dunno, sir! It just got up on two busted hind legs and hopped away.."

We all spread out thru the woods on that side of the road, but never did spot the deer. We figured he hopped away to some low-lying spot in the swamp nearby to lay down and die.

But I guarantee we were all thinking about some fresh venison steaks for dinner that night. :)

(And the damage to the cadet's car? The recessed turn-signal light on his bumper was pushed in.  10 seconds of pushing it from the back side of the bumper and it was right back in the same spot it was before the collision)

Now if your cadets had only jumped into the future and taken the Cadet Survival School, they would know how to administer the Coup de gras and it could have been venison for everyone!

Lets just say that there were enough people able to administer, if you know what I mean.

EP, attempting to rationalize your behaviour doesn't make it any less foolish. One of the last things a Darwin Award recipient has been known to say is, "Hey, watch this!"

Shoulda done ORM on leaping over a small bush in the middle of the woods.

I'm going to add "possibility of field-goal kicking a baby deer" to the possible hazards we need to consider.

Well we know what happened to you. But what happened to the deer?
