PDA

View Full Version : Life So, we hit a deer....

Only four of us went up to the game this week. Took the van of a friend of ours who was unable to go. Dad was driving, I was in the passenger seat, and two friends in the back. I was resting my eyes, when someone in the back yelled, "DEER!" I opened my eyes just in time to think, "Oh my god!" It was big. We're guessing it was an eight pointer. When we went back to get pictures, we noticed that the rack must have been ripped off its head. It managed to split the radiator.

Hit it between Clinton and Harrisonville. Had it towed to Clinton, and a friend of ours (owner of the van who couldn't go to the game) came and got us.

Pics to follow....

Nope. We couldn't find (the deer) rack. :p

If they find a piece of it in the radiator, I told the friend of ours (who is the one that came to get us) that he needs to put it on a string and hang it from the rear view mirror.

I got this picture from a friend who runs a wrecker. Deer strike on the interstate.

Good thing papasmurf is a capable driver; in the last week, I've heard of two incidents where folks swerved to miss a deer and rolled their vehicles.

Ouch.

Yeah. We were going about 80, and dad figured we had nowhere to go. He just held onto the wheel let off the gas, and ran him over. Things could have been a lot worse.

If someone would have had to pee when we passed through Lowery City, if we had hit a light red passing through Clinton, etc. Oh well, we're all okay, so we'll be able to talk about it later. We figure after 3 or 4 years, it will have been a 20 point buck charging at us...lol.

Fender work, new grill, new radiator, and new AC. That's what we're figuring.

That's not really all that bad, it's not uncommon for deer strikes to total out vehicles.

It was on my way to the Lake of the Ozarks; bounced a deer off my right front quarter panel the first time, then on the return trip hit another deer nearly head-on and pretty much broke the thing in half. I was driving a 4Runner at the time.

Maybe that is why I have seen a couple decapitated deer this week..














Or it was some horrible hunter who is going to claim it as his trophy kill..

If you want to see it, it's at Golden Valley (I think is what it's called). North end of Clinton. Limited time, as they're going to go get it tomorrow.

Too bad you didn't have my number I could gave you guys a ride back

The semi coming up in the background in that pic didn't miss the deer by much when he drove by. I turned my head and took a few steps back. I just knew I was going to be wearing deer guts if he hit him.

It's legal to take them, you just need to contact the conservation guys within 24hours. Meat, antlers, whatever.

Here you go Luv :D I'm glad you all came out of it ok.

Mild and Smoky Venison Jerky

This recipe is for 2 pounds of lean, sliced venison. There is no hot pepper seasoning added to this recipe, so it's nice and mild. The liquid smoke can be left out if you dry this one in the smoker.

1/4 cup of soy sauce
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon of Tender Quick®
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of liquid smoke

Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Combine the marinade and the venison, and refrigerate overnight. Drain the strips of venison well before dehydrating.

The thing had antlers when we hit it.

Although I can't remember for sure. It happened really fast. Everyone else said it did though.

Quick...get your ass back to that location and recover that carcass. Get it to a taxidermist asap and tell them you want that thing stuffed and filled like a punching bag, but tougher.

Then, every gameday, smack that sumbitch with a vehicle of your choosing.

Thanks.

It's not our van. It's a friend of ours who couldn't go to the game. I'm wondering what's funny? I think it's really cool.

Anyway, the insurance company said they would total it out, but our friend wants to take the check and fix it. I guess the paint job was a pain in the ass to get right.

Typical insurance company, they don't like to pay to fix older vehicles. And I don't doubt for a second that paint job was a pain in the ass, it sure as hell isn't something you do in your garage on a Saturday afternoon.

That, and it kind of has sentimental value, ya know? Many a story involving that van. It's legendary. Plus, the guys who went in together to buy it put so much work into it. The cloth on the inside is Chiefs. THey even took some of their parent's red shag carpet and put in it. No way were they ready to retire the old gal.

How old is it anyway? Those Chevys didn't change at all for almost 30 years other than the grille, and it's obliterated. From what I can tell it's an early 90s model?

I have no clue. Let's see if I have another pic.....

Nope. None of the front. Here's one of the co-owner of the van/tailgate grill master (anyone recognize the shirt?) and an example of the cloth and red shag carpet (look at inside of back door).

Eh, it's no big deal, just kinda curious. I did a little research and it looks like Chevy used the stacked headlights from 84-91, so it's at least pushing 20 yrs old, but looks to be in great shape for its age.
