Yin Yang Hunter 1 - Canada Goose 1. Wildlife encounters

A hunter was knocked out by a goose on 5 oct:

He and his son were out hunting geese when something fell out of the sky and rendered him KO. It turned out that a goose, shot by his son had crashed down right on his head after falling about 60'

The hunter, Ulf Ilbäck from Linköping, Sweden told a reporter that he was forced to call in sick for a few days and that "many humorous remarks were made" when he returned to work. He also commented that: -I suppose the goose wanted to get even...

Maybe they should rewrite the hunter safety courses, because I don't remember that being covered

And people thought Canadians were sweet and demure....hah! We're a vindictive lot...but usually we're more subtle than that goose.

It's deer season here - for hunters and cars. I've seen them before but.....

I hit a deer yesterday. That was a first for me. He looked at me...I slammed on the brakes, but it was a place I just couldn't swerve without being in bigger trouble. I was a bit shook up - and thought he flailed, then died, but then he got up. Looked at me like "what did I do to deserve that?" So car has minimal damage, he may have wandered off an died, but looked 'ok' when I left, and I was OK (airbag didn't deployy!) Just freaked me out a little.

Glad to hear it, and I don't blaim you for freaking out a bit.

The problem with the guys in my pictures are that they are so tall and heavy. When you hit them, the results are often catastrophic: You hit the legs and the body falls straight through the windscreen. A colleague of mine did that last year. He walked away from it in far better shape than one would expect, but he had a very spectacular lump on his forhead, and a couple of king size black eyes. He looked like a racoon for weeks afterwards. The car was a total write-off, of course.
