Heck, I literally gotta shoo them off the doorstep to get to work most mornings. They come up to munch on my ivy. Zero fear these suburbs deer.
Same here. Then I drive way out in the country and have to work for it. Many times I've sat here thinking that my crossbow wouldn't make any noise at all and I could butcher them in the garage. Then I remember how historically good I've been (not very) at "getting away with something" in the past and give up...

My thoughts exactly… though I could probably K-Bar the herd here. So many folks feed them illegally, you can pet many of them if you want.

Schwack! Jerky and steaks.

Amazed, considering the damage I did hitting a badger - but that was in a Jaguar XJ40, at about 90!
Imagine what a woodchuck does to a VW Bug doing about 90....

Most folks probably can't even imagine a VW bug doing 90. Got a coyote in our Ford Fusion last year at about 90, makes ya miss th good old days when cars were metal.

Looks like I'll be buying new tires after my trip...a little slippy on the wet pavement this morning. Lotsa oil on the roads here right now though as it hadn't rained for a few weeks. Means I got about 15 miles on them all said and done...but it has been some hard use...

Think my worst hit was a woodchuck when I raced semi-pro mountain bikes. Killed the chuck, locked the front wheel and broke both arms going over the handlebars.

After 17 year, 9 months , various lifts, 3 different front bumpers, two rear, various skid plates, two sets of rock rails, different interior,
many full fluid changes , tuneups , 3 different roof racks and untold hours trying new and different things on it
I started it, rolled out of the barn and onto a fifth wheel trailer heading to a new home
May have been a tear involved . :confused::(
Longest I have ever owned a vehicle in the last 52 years of having a legal drivers license

Don't take this wrong, but you and I seem to be air-cooled vw nerds now driving fixed up "not a real" jeeps and now I find out you mountain bike! I think we'd get along in real life.

tomm, I don't think you could have picked a worse time to be looking for a ride like that. everything has gotten stupid expensive, but cool cars like that have gone full re-tard^stupid (re-tard raised to the power of stupid).
