It is a good thing to remember to when pulling your airstream. Swerving for critters can yells more damage

I learned, a long time ago driving a semi, pulling a 53 footer, that if you are going to hit something and you have control of your vehicle....keep control and hit it head on.

I had a neighbor that hit a deer on the way to work. Two days later, before he had even reported the first deer hit, he hit another one.
The insurance company hit him up twice on the deductible. Obviously the right thing for them to do, but it frustrated him nun the less.
We have a lot of them around here, but I've never seen as many on the road as the Texas Hill Country. They were quite a bit smaller than our local deer though.

Good advice - keep control of your vehicle. What happens after that is not in your control.
