Enjoyed the tour, Hal!

Congrats. I finally ended my streak of fishingless weeks on April 17 at 27--over half a year! Now if I can just get back out and get the feeling you had recently...

Bambi hitting the Trail Blazer is going to cost me $ 500 my deductible. Car goes into tomorrow to have the drivers side door fixed. I have the mental picture of the two bambis bolting across the highway in front of me (20-30 yards away) while I was doing 65-70 mph at 6:00 am in Michigan farm country.

Due to my evasive driving skills I managed to swerve and stop on shoulder missing the first lead white tail. Then heard the big thud to my car, and said oh XXXX. Got out and looked for damage in early morning light at first did not see any. But then saw dent in the door.

I thanked god for allowing me to evade the first deer. If I had hit that one it would have been a frontal hit and it could have flipped up on to the hood into the wind shield, which can be deadly.

First time almost 40 years of early morning and night driving through deer country that I have been hit, actually no other close calls either.

Have to look into the silent animal whistles you can place on your bumper to alert them that something is coming and which may help to scare them away from the road.

There is no reaction time when they bolt across that close and you are doing the highway speed limit which was 70 mph.

I guess I was just due for one of these which turned out lucky for me, could have been a lot worse. Just what I needed to help break The Streak.

Yeah. Right.

"It ran right into me." Sure.

Hal had a spear lashed to his car fender and bumper. Also, the wheel wells are packed with mud. He likes to travel the back roads in Michigan at dawn and dusk. Sounds fishy to me! :hehe:

Was that venison steak tasty? How much per pound did it work out to be?

Explain how that deer did this to my car and then ran away and I assume survived ? Can't see how it did not dent that middle bar on the trail blazer door. I think it hit me back end first since I had white hairs on the door, think it tried to stop and slide into car door below that bar.

I could use that $ 500 deductible for Ms. 5120, now I have to wait longer for her.

Yes she it was sweet casting her at the clave. Some day the relationship will be permanent.

Shoot me your home address it its not non public personal information need to send you some steelie flys, I have way to many even after this weeks trip. Maybe I lost 10-15 flys, still have a few thousand in reserves. I tied up another 24 today of new deep egg patterns, that has proven itself this year.

I figure I can give some to you since it is not likely I will be following down a Michigan river any time soon with you using my secret flies.

I thought it was just a new addition to his dogfood program.
