Too close for comfort

Normally, I drive it like I stole it, but this day I was just cursing home and came across something you don't want to view any closer than this through your HUD, and this is only a baby moose born this spring.

Yep, you should see the bulls when they have a full rack. Looks like a mini van on the road.

It's definitely good you didn't hit him. You might have made him angry...

couple weeks ago I had an experience with a deer in the road. Night time and I saw ahead traffic stopped on a bridge. Got closer, saw the deer just staring at me. A guy in the oncoming lane that was stopped honked his horn. The deer got spooked decided to jump off the bridge. Unfortunate for him too. this is the bridge....

Had an encounter with 3 deer......2 I saw. Saw em running across the road so I braked hard and thought, whew!...Just as I get off the brake and start to accelerate, here comes #3. I slam on the brakes as its cossing my headlights and I hear a thump. Damn it, there goes the front facia! But when I got home, nary a mark. Think rear hoof connected with facia corner. So when some say the paint is crap on these cars, I can attest to IOM being pretty tough.

There's a difference between "murdering" and "hunting" you know.

If you're hungry and you kill it to eat it then I'm all for it. Trophy hunting is nothing but cold-blooded murder to me. That's my take on it. I'm not judging you though.

Lol a subconscious mistake on my part; I was probably cursing for being in Alaska.
