Harvesting motor vehicles

Posted Monday, February 9, 2009, at 3:16 PM

A recent report by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency contained some interested facts about the number of deer "harvested" by hunters in Tennessee during the recent deer hunting season.

The report indicated it was a good year for hunters but one item was missing from the report.

How many of us would like to know how many motor vehicles were "harvested" by the deer?

We've certainly had our share in Bedford County. This past weekend there was a report of motorcycle versus deer in an injury accident.

Maybe the traffic and wildlife officials could get together to give us an accurate report on this problem.

I worked at a body shoppe in the '80's and saw what full grow Buck vs. small british import will do.

The Buck did not live, but the car was really damaged. It became a convertible pretty quick.

Seems to me you need a longer deer season in TN.

I hit one back in the 90's, don't want to again!
