Looks weird though, I know it's a "Dodge" but should t there be some damage?

That's what I was thinking. It almost looks staged the way the blood is on the fender and a cut to the neck of the elk.

 :yeah: Har far out in the field do you have to be before it's called poaching?

That mature bull body looks tiny compared to the truck, tire, wheel, etc.

Wow....

I have no inside scoop but some of you are jumping right to poaching?

How can you possibly tell from a pic?


And if it was mortally wounded and ran 100 yards it a field, so what?

I hope if this is a legit roadkill that those who accused him are man enough to apologize.

It does look staged but there is damage to one of the brow tines and there are trucks on what appears to be a road behind the truck... anymore pics of the incident?

:yeah:

I've seen bulls shot through both lungs run much further than that before stopping.

The traffic report on the news this morning talked about delays due to a vehicle/elk collision in Maple Valley.

I'm guessing there is damage on the front passenger corner, that blood all ran down from the hood, I'd guess either a severed jugular or he ended up on the hood after the impact
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

The driver is being transported for non-life threatening injuries.

You get to keep the head on roadkill? Or have to turn that over when getting salvage permit? Too bad to see this happen. Really hope the driver is ok.

I was joking, Dan-O. I guess I apologize for my bad sense of humor. God, I can't wait until hunting season starts.

My understanding is that you keep the entire animal

Yeah, website doesn't say anything about antlers and the form doesn't ask.  That's a great trophy although if the guy was hurt it isn't likely he would be able to bag that one up.  That may not even be the rig that hit it first.

The car that was hit was a Saturn Vue.  This guy just stopped to help.  I was told the meat was taken to the food bank.  No poaching or anything suspect.  Prayers to the injured driver.

Was hit on 169 right passed Foley's produce stand heading towards Renton.
