Thread: Fun start to the day. . .

  1. #1

    Default Fun start to the day. . .

    So we are moving and yesterday morning I decided to head down to Heppner Oregon to look for houses, I got about 45 miles out of town when a Mule deer steps into my path.

    Needless to say when a Honda Civic hits a Mule Deer the Civic wins but not by much. Car is a complete loss--good thing it's insured. . .

    I should add that I was the only one in the car and no one (well maybe the deer) was hurt.

    Glad you're alright. I can't believe how much damage it did!

    Did the police give you the option of keeping the deer? It makes for some good cookin'!

    No, no police showed up. It's a pretty common occurrence in Eastern WA. If I would have had my pickup with me I would have loaded it up.

    I've been told that the deer is now gone and that it was picked up less than an hour after I was gone by one of the local farmers/ranchers.

    Glad to hear you are O.K. The worst I have ever seen was a relatively high speed collision with a 600 pound hog. Not much left of the pig or the Volvo.

    A few years back a guy in town nailed a 4 point buck going 65+ on I287. Rolled right up the hood, through the front window and gored him in the heart. He's dead on the spot, deer is dead, car continues down the road out of control, crosses a grass median and glances off another car before hitting a retaining wall. Guy 0 Deer 0 Cars -2. They had to saw off the rack to get the guy and the deer out of the car.

    By the way, it's not recommended you eat road kill deer. The impact usually splatters their innards which then leaks some pretty vile fluid into the meat.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    That sounds like one crazy crash! A few years ago, I hit a deer. My car was totaled, but the deer was trying to jump the hood, so all I did was break it's legs.
    The cops showed up and said that they would have to shoot the deer, unless I wanted to. I said I would, called a buddy who showed up with a shotgun and a jeep. We shot the deer, gutted it on the side of the road and took it to the processor. It was good meat, although it wasn't killed by the car, so I guess that vile fluid didn't leak into the meat.

    I've also heard, though I can't verify, that some of the food banks around here will take the deer meat from road kills. Maybe it depends on how it's killed or how quickly it's gutted. I don't know, but now you've got me worried!
