I was looking in the wrong spot!!




I got this in an email this morning and don't remember seeing it here before. So here they are.

This is the story that accompanied the pictures.

This happened at Manitoba Hydro. The Winnipeg, Fort Garry Crew got this call that a deer was up on a pole.
Sounds unbelievable, but a train hit it and launched it onto the power line.

Bad set up not enough background cover to break up his silhouette. He might get lucky on some young kids but not on any experienced adults!

See IL-BOW-MAN, the deer arent stupid. They figured you out. They figured if you can hide up high from them in them trees, well then they can hide up high there from you to.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> Heck why throw old shoes up there when you can throw old deer up there, it must be a redneck thing.<img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
