Default Rough opening day

Thought you guys might get a kick out of this. I had to work today so I wasn't going to be able to make it out this morning (Opening day in Mo.). I left for work about 5:30 AM and was traveling down a road surrounded by conservation land (no hunting permitted). I was thinking to myself that I should be climbing into my treestand right about now when all of a sudden......SMACK! A nice 8 point came out of nowhere and took the front end of my work van out. He rolled 3-4 times and just laid in the middle of the road. I collected my thoughts, pulled to the side of the road and got out. I got about 5 feet from him and he jumped up and took off. Talk about being a little startled. I waited until daylight and took a walk in the direction he ran off to but was unable find many tracks or a blood trail.

My day at work today is dragging now because all I can think about is seeing a buck like that coming toward my stand tomorrow. Just wanted to share my opening day experience with you all.

It busted out the left side headlight and flasher. It also destroyed the grill and punctured the radiator hose. The front left quarter panel also had a sizeable dent in it.
