Okay it was more like a thud....I was driving one of our prisoners to the hospital in a county vehicle (Excursion) when lo and behold a ginormous Elk decides to cross the front of my vehicle at approx 45-50 MPH...it was the most disgusting sound I have hever heard as I drug him under the vehicle....the impact didn't feel bad but the damage to the Excurion was tremendous I mean it crushed the passenger front of the vehicle....I almost crapped myself when the Sheriff showed up

Good thing you weren't driving one of those small "great on fuel" cars.


Seriously, glad you're okay. :)

So did you field dress it and tie it to the squad car take it back to be processed.

Elks steaks sound good. or even just grind it for sausage

Yikes. Elk are enormous.

I was driving in my little BMW up west of Golden a little while back, and a herd of them were on the side of the road. The male's stomach was above the doorline of my car.

Did you hit a male or a female?

I was wondering when we'd see photos of Plummer's road rage incident.

Did you hit a male or a female?I'm guessing it was a male...the top of his back was as high as the hood on the excursion and it is up on 33'' tires...I'm pretty sure his rack was as tall as the top of the truck
