Have a happy and SAFE holiday season!
« on: November 22, 2007, 12:40:02 pm »

Happy Turkey Day everybody!

Remember that there are a lot more accidents and drunks on the roads during the holidays. Be extra careful!

For those in the Northwoods, watch for deer! They sure are running.

Not a good scenario!  Similar to what happens if someone hits a horse.  The vehicle takes them off their feet and they come through the windshield.  Even happens with deer sometimes if they jump just before they get hit.  We've also had a lot of dead deer on the side of the road here lately.  As mentioned it's probably related to rifle season.

Its also rut.  Nothing like running into an amorous deer.

Yah, My dad had a deer come through his windshield in Central WI. the deer hit the passenger seat(luckily no one was in it) and pretty much exploded inside the car. Internal organs were found on the floor in the back seat. Feces was spread out over all of the rear windows. My dad walked away with only a few bits of deer flesh on him.

Car was totaled. The deer bent the roof frame.

Sorry, I could not find any digital pics of this.

Where I live we only have a 2 week bow season, no deer hunting with guns. The deer are like rats with antlers. I was driving to work recently near my home in bumper to bumper 70mph on the Saw Mill Parkway when a deer jumped into traffic right in front of the guy in front of me. His Honda Pilot sent the deer 20 ft in the air and completely over the traffic in the right lane. The dead deer tumbled along the side of the road for maybe 100 ft. The guy never slowed down. I guess he really needed to get to work.

man, we have bow, muzzle loader, and rifle hunting up here. Rifle I want to say is a good month long. My ex girlfriends family averaged about 15 tags between the three people that hunted, and they normally got all their tags full.

Its almost to the point up here that they cancel school on opening day of hunting season.... you're missing have the students anyway. Razz

Certain rural school districts around here and in Northeast PA do also.
