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.

    • Already doing many of these.  It's slowly improving.
    • I was just getting some info on this unit: http://www.zoellerpumps.com/en-ap/product/63-basement-sentry#features     I am sure you could hook up multiple batteries as well
    • Sunday, pulled a group of 3 toms from about 500 yds across private into the public only to hang up at 60 yds. We worked them for 2 hrs and they never got in front of the blind. They finally got closer, but instead of going in front of the blind, they got behind the blind at about 5 yards inside the woodline and could hear them stepping on twigs. Man what a rush. Sadly, they walked back onto private and out of our lives LOL. Kinda wish I was hunting with a shotgun!   3 or 4 gobblers were rattling off behind us in the woods in the morning and shut up by 7. The 3 that we got to come in from private were to the other side and they didn't gobble til they were close enough to see/hear our setup. Those two hours were between 8 and 10. Will try again.
    • They will lose 90 to 100 games again this year. They do not have the pitching to even get to 500. Santana will be our lone all-star and be traded before end of year. Hope something changes but they did not add anything for starters or offensive so until they do we will get the same junk. Really sucks cause i love watching and listening to the games all summer long.
    • % of people that have picked that person. 
    • Some rainy river monsters! 61" 60" and a 54"! Have a look!  
    • Many big sturgeon boated this past week again.  Has been a great year for sturgeon so far up and down the river.  Fish different holes until you find fish.  Use a 3 ounce no roll sinker, a 1-1.5 foot leader, and a circle hook loaded (called a sturgeon rig) with frozen shiners and crawlers for best results. Anchor boat up stream of a deeper hole and pitch sturgeon rig into the hole. Heavy equipment is preferred.  Pike fishing is going good right now in shallow bays and on the Rainy River. Best methods so far are using buzz baits or lying a frozen cisco on bottom with a hook and weight(similar to a sturgeon rig but with less weight).   Pike are active in bays. The lake and bays and water starting to warm up and pike are being caught.  Pike are open all year up on LOW.   Up at the NW Angle, the ice is gone and it's open water.  Remember, walleyes open May 13th, pike and crappies open all year for LOW MN and sturgeon fishing through May 15th and then again July 1st.
    • Was clearing some downed trees from trails this morning. Checked a couple of trees and would you look at that. I didn't look very hard so I'm sure there are more, but of course have to head to work. Cold weather predicted after today though...  
    • Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!
    •   CM..that is a big "if" and pretty much the story of the series...good puck possession, lots of shots, few goals...and they have to find guys that can score against the "Allen's" of the world going forward...we aren't going to be playing against trash tenders come any playoff time.   Agree with your observation on the D zone coverage...way too much stick checking all over the ice by both forwards and Dmen...lack of putting body on opponents is either A  - pure laziness or  B - simply outmatched physically. This has to be addressed going foward.   Quite frankly I cannot think of one player that stepped up in the playoffs and played above their reg season...not one.    Haula seems to be a headcase...I don't think he is near as good as he thinks he is and tends to beat to his own drum IMO but we might be stuck with him. Ek will figure it out...playing in the World's now after playing in the Junior World's as well so he'll keep working on his game and be a good one soon IMO.   Will be interesting to hear Fletch's spin on things when he assesses things publicly soon but my guess is it will be "the sky is not falling...blah blah blah" same dump every year.  Sounds Like Leo is keeping him unfortunately...but he's made his own bed, now he has to sleep in it and there are not many GM's in the NHL that envy his postion IMO.
