Car vs. Deer

13 posts in this topic

I got a call on Thursday night that my brother had hit a deer on the way up north in Aldrich along Hwy 10 (he was fine). I rented a tow dolly yesterday and went up to pick up him and his car. Needless to say he was pretty lucky, as a split second earlier he would have hit it square and there could have been a much different result. His car will be totaled, but we got it back down to the cities anyway. Thanks to the employees/patrons at Ted & Gen's bar in Aldrich who helped my brother out after the accident by setting him up at a hotel in Wadena and giving him a ride there. Here are some pics of the car when I went to pick it up (we got plenty of strange looks/comments when we stopped because of the damage):

Good to hear everyone was OK. Ten & Gen's are good people and they serve great prime rib and steaks.

I've hit a few deer, but never had them splatter like that. Glad he was okay.

Glad he is ok, you could buy a front corner clip from wrecking yard, unbolt the damaged parts, slap on the new and have a decent car. I would take it in and get the front end squared up but other than that spend a thousand and use if for a daily driver.

    • Well got the unit today first Impressions are I'm really happy with it...I like how the maps included have depth shading...The screen seems very nice...The only thing I don't like so far is the quick release bracket, I feel like I'm going to break it when I pop it off. The transducer is pretty darn huge, not sure if all side imaging ducers are like that or not...Overall very happy for $499, cant wait to get it on the water.
    • Hey you guys!...had to fly into Phoenix couple days ago to check on some golf stuff and while wandering through a big supermarket saw a display of Canadian pen-raised walleye.  It was 18.99 a POUND.   Can you believe that!?  A stinkin'  little 16 ounces of walleye for THAT much money. If a guy could put up with all that sloppy, soft wiggle-wiggle of a battle to boat one a guy could make a pile of money catching them.  Personally,  I'd fall asleep in a walleye hot bite.
    • What's kind of interesting is there were a few crab apples by my old work and they would eat some in the fall. But in the spring when they must get just ripe enough. It would be a pile on of Robins, Blue Jays, Squirrels and they would clean the trees in a few days. Like a good wine they must know when its time!
    • Hoo boy. I better get me booties on.

    • Hillary and whatever terminal illness she has did seem like a favorite fake news item for you, although I thought it was a close second besides that obama boner thing you really really wanted to see.

    • Shell is complete, had trouble finding a door luckily a guy had a camper door on hsolist that will be re-skined with the black .040 exterior siding.  The aluminum siding was supposed to show up yesterday, but dint for what ever reason and will be delivered on Tuesday.  Installed the bracing for 5 holes, HDPE on the skis will be in tomorrow to be installed hopefully next week also.  As you can see I built a ladder for the top bunk, I am assuming once the kids stop using it as a playhouse that area will be converted into storage as this is just a day house.  Any input would be appreciated.
