OK, you win this round.

How about the 'I got closer' game?

My entry (from a non-RV):

.....that's a lot of elk.. Each one probably outweighs 5 of Doug's deer.

I guess I won this round in 2011 Doug (my entry from a non-A320). Right after Phase 1.







One less danger in the sky

Default Clear For Deer

The insurance company was not too inclined to believe the story at first. But about a week or so later, another pilot somewhere else hit a bear on his take-off roll. Killed them all, the pilot, the bear and the airplane. At that point the insurance company paid up and thanked my friend for limiting the damage as much as he had.

Now before starting the engine, my friend calls "Clear for deer?"

Y'all be careful out there.

About four years ago... I was standing by a wreck. The insurance adjuster said you shoulda hit the deer. The highway patrol officer said, no... the pine tree was the better choice. The SO officer said... yup... it's totaled. I took it in the shorts... either way. No hull coverage.

Default Close is easy.....

.........The harrassing wildlife charge would be expensive. Not good to stress the animals this time of year either. There is a lot of winter yet that they need their energy for. If you run an animal, it's (hormone) stress levels are elevated for hours.

[ed. I wouldn't say I was 'close', just to be clear. Here is one of the originals...non-zoomed. One pass. The 'real close' deer shown earlier was just off the grass runway. dr]
