Don't hit an elk with your motorhome, unless we build you a custom cow catcher! This guy only had some plexiglass for bugs, it didn't help!

At least he has an excuse, over here people hit kangaroos that are much smaller but seem to do just as much damage to modern tinfoil vehicles.

I learned as a teenager that coyotes and small cars don't get along at 80 mph either!

Doh!! Something tells me the motorhome came out of that better than the Elk did, even though it left quite a mark!

Who says the elk was wasted?? I see elk burgers for days, and let's look at it positively- he saved a 180 gr. 7mm mag bullet!!!!:laugh:

Hey You got a kitchen and a fridge available in the back! How can it go to waste? I say whip out the grill and make the best of it till the cops show up.

What's that big white chunk of fiberglas cost?

If an elk smashed my camper I'd definitely be stocking that fridge.
I might even let a few beers get warm to make room.
On second thought, they wouldn't have to get warm.
Butchering is hard work!:drinkup:

The glass boys showed up a few days back and we have windshields now.

Anyway, after about a million little details, the cap is in place and lucky for us, the owner does not wish to have graphics this time! That'll about do it!

where is the elk catcher you were supposed to build for this? now how is it that the elk hit the rv instead of the rv hitting the elk? hence why many OTR semi trucks have them

Nice repair, I'm sure he's pleased, those are pretty cool rigs.

Note: talk about an ~other blamer~ personality... "An Elk hit me." ok then,

friend hit a moose in his peterbilt and it bent the frame. sitting in the front of that motor home i would imagine hitting an elk would pucker your butthole.

Serves him right. That coyote had no business doing 80.

But with an ACME Rocket, you too can mow down that Road Runner at break-neck-speed!!


Pesky small cars keep getting in the way!?!? :confused:
