Car vs. Deer

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
