I would like to salvage this animal and agree to the terms of salvage:
Three quarters of the deer were salvaged. Both front quarters and the left rear quarter. Also salvaged was the back strap of the animal.
I'm absolutely certain
The color of the animal was that of a female mule deer during this time of the year. In general, tannish to light brown with areas lending itself to the color of white. The doe was about 150 pounds and appeared to be traveling with about 3-4 other deer. My friend and I were heading up Highway 21 from Boise around 7:00 pm when we saw a doe standing in the adjacent lane facing Lucky Peak Reservoir. The actual earthen portion of the dam where the road crosses the dam. We came to a stop and the deer turned to go back in the opposite direction that it was previously going to travel. At that time a truck pulling a load of lumber with several cars behind him traveling down hill around the bend appeared and struck the deer on its left hind quarter. The truck never stopped nor any cars behind him. My friend and i pull off the highway along the adjacent road to check on the deer. The deer died from the collision approximately 5-10 minutes after being struck. During this time, a white minivan pulled over to check on us since they saw out headlights. Once the deer was dead, we travel back towards Boise till we had cell service and called Fish and Game leaving a message describing the incedent. We then went back and loaded the deer in the back of our truck and continued out of town. The meat was salvaged at our camp located just as you cross the middle fork to the left of the bridge. I took a video of the describing what happen with my phone and must not have hit record as i no longer have the video for what ever reason.
