Would that have been the La Sals?
Beautiful country down there. Red rocks and blue mountains.

Re: Can somebody sell this guy a truck!

ha he ha.. had to chuckle at that one. ive had more than 1 fully grown wild boar strapped in my passanger seat in my Mitsubishi Pajero(montero)the wife complained about the smell and the serial killer stains on the seat, so i bought a game carrier that hooks on the trailer hitch (tow bar for you Brits). it must have been a bitch to get an animal so hight up with only 2 blokes, ever notice how the hair on animals legs goes the wrong way on for gripping em? i struggle like hell to get some of the se pigs on the carrier and its only 3 feet of the ground.

This is a funny picture! Hey Pete, you are lucky you still have a wife after putting a dead animal in the passenger seat of your truck. My wife would have me strapped to the top of the car if I ever did that. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Can somebody sell this guy a truck!

Knappy, wait till you are stationed here buddy, i'll show you the stains on the seat,
Game in cars,, i'm working with a Greek guy at the mo, his brother hit a wild hog with a 6 month old BMW touring (station wagon)just clipped the pig and didn't dammage the car much ,but the pig was laid out on the road, thinking cheap sunday roast, he and his mate lifted the pig ( a 60kg perhaps 3 year old boar) into the back of the car,.. they had gone maybe 15km when there was a grunting scuffling starting to occur in the back, all of a sudden the "dead" boar was wide awake, and pretty unhappy about been run over and kidnapped (or pig napped as the case may be) . screaming and snorting.and creating havock in the back of the car.. The driver stopped the car asap and de-bused, unfortunately some how managing to close the doors behind them, so now the pig was trapped. to scared to approach the car and open the door, they left the pig inside and called the automobile association for recovery, mean while the pig completely wrecked the inside of the car..
the story made the papers in Belgium apparently, which is where the incident occured.
the cheap sunday lunch turned into an expensive one.
Pete

Re: Can somebody sell this guy a truck!

A little update on the sweet "elk on car" photos:

From the Billings Gazette.


November 17, 2005



Off-Trail: Mystery of cartop elk solved
Brett French
OFF-TRAIL

Bonnie Potter was "tickled to death" when she saw two pictures of her bull elk, tied awkwardly across the top of a small Dodge Colt, printed in The Billings Gazette's Outdoors section last Thursday.

"It was so cool," she said. "It was my first bull, and I wanted to bring it home whole to show my daughter. You wouldn't believe how many people took pictures. So many people were smiling, and others were flipping us off, too."

The photos were sent across the country via e-mail to friends and family, a copy of which ended up in the Gazette newsroom. The Gazette's caption on the photos asked for more information on who the photographer was and if anyone knew the occupants of the car.


Joe Hughes, an engineer at Micron in Boise and former Montanan, called in to take credit for the photo. He snapped it on Oct. 30 on his way back from hunting with his father and brother near Winifred.

"My sister gets the Gazette and she called me up and said, 'Hey, your picture is in the Gazette,'" Hughes said.

"It was pretty interesting," he said of seeing the big bull motoring down the highway atop the tiny car.

Potter, of Roundup, said her truck was in the shop the weekend she went hunting, so she and her boyfriend had to make due with the small Dodge. It was her first big bull, taken on a private ranch north of Roy in hunting district 417.

Potter's friend, Garth Bascom, a foreman at the ranch, loaded the five-point bull atop the car using a front-end loader, she said. The group laid two 2x6 planks across the length of the roof to keep it from caving in, placing the elk on top of the boards.

"It was sagging but the boards held," she said. "I sure as heck wasn't going to sit inside there when they loaded it."

With all the weight, Potter said the car was topping out at about 45 mph on the ride home. "The back wheels were hitting the fenders on almost any bump," she added.

She's already purchased a new freezer to hold all the meat
