Re: First early season montana deer
I do not ever apply for the early season deer or elk tags but somehow I always draw them. Three elk and many whitetailed deer, no serious truck damage. The benefits of a Herd bumpers and a flat bed usually means broken mirrors, flesh on the flatbed and guts on the horse trailer.
Oh ya, I prefer the Dodge.
Just the other day I was going to pick up a new horse just outside of Bozanglos MT. I was trying to keep the local drivers from killing me. There is something about horse trailers that make people risk their life to pass you, then dynomite the brakes and turn with no turn signal. So in the middle of pre-road rage rant, I noticed the all too, familiar whitetail deer, 126 yards from the road, running like a prison escapee, at a precalculated angle if intersection with,,,,,,,me! A guy can see it coming, know what is about to happen, and only slow down so fast then wham! Right into the door. I looked at my dad and said "the friggen deer do not even know how to act decent in traffic here!", but he was still in shock from the deer attack and waited a few minutes to laugh......He kind of even screamed, at the time of impact like an ol' guy falling down. We lived, horse lived, deer inside out!
My weapon was Dodge truck with the Titan 16 foot, loaded with 1,500 lbs. of draft cross, seated at goose neck, usually around 126fps, but target was impacted at 73fps. DRT
