It smashed the hell out of your car, and left its' body right in the road. Why would you waste food? I have left the woods after squirrel hunting only to have one run out in the road in front of me. A slight swerve and I popped that squirrels head like a nut. Five for the day instead of four. I have done the same with rabbit, deer, and turkeys. Road kill is definitely good eating, but you have to get there before the flies show up.

The picture at the top paints an unappetizing picture, but there's nothing wrong with roadkill of a large animal like a deer. You will generally want to discard the area where the animal was struck, at most about a quarter.

In states where this is an established practice the local sheriff or animal control will have a list of people to call when the driver that struck the animal doesn't want to claim it. So you don't have troll the neighborhood and assess the freshness of animals on the side of the road.

You'll need a dedicated freezer of course same as for hunting.

My grandpa always told me “the more times you run over a dead cat, the flatter it gets.” <—true story
