The CANAM Deer strike is legitimate. It was filmed during a rally style point to point race.

The angle of deflection from the nose, combined with the speed, created a "launching" effect for the deer.

It was a fawn and it was found with a broken neck, hanging from a tree - THIRTY (30) feet in the air.

If I remember correctly, it was filmed in Austria.
