Wow, you surely took a nice hit with that Turkey. Head on too. Glad it hit the hood and not a direct hit into the windshield. Obituary would have read......"He was done in by a bird, and not a 2 legged one".
Regardless, did some pretty significant damage. Glad you had a good outcome.
Oh, and to the stink, you are so right! Just for those who have never encountered one.......they wreak, and it lingers, and lingers, and lingers. Did I say it lingers! LOL It's worse than having dried eggs splattered on your windshield ( know from experience, lol ) to get off.
