    Is this all tire tread kill or do you actually have to clean the front of your truck off?

    San Antonio to Dallas. Dallas to Joplin/Carthage, MO ... and back to San Antonio, TX.

    I didn't hit a damn thing .... 'cept a ton of bugs on the windshield.

    San Antonio to Liberal, KS to Los Angeles, to Portland, OR to damn near the Canucklehead border in N. Central WA, to San Antonio ..... 10 days - 5000+ miles. Lots of fricking snow, and lots of "near-misses" in the animal report.

    I saw a bear in Washington. I was telling a friend about it, and he said Grizzlies can be chocolate colored, which is what he looked like. I didn't get a good enough look at him, as it was dark, snowing, and I was more concerned about not hitting him. So, I looked around the net, and decided to report it anyway.

    US Grizzly range

    The "range" of the North Cascades grizzly bear population extends to where I saw that bear.

    That's what he looked like, to the best of my recollection.


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Last night driving SE of Lubbock, TX - between Slaton and Post, TX, I saw a BIG cat cross right in front of me. I damn near hit it, missing it by less than a couple feet. At first, the size made me think it was a large coyote, as it was about the size of some of the bigger coyotes I've seen.

    Then, I realized it had no tail, and I focused on the face. It was feline (cat), not canine. The truck behind me saw it too, and he said he was sure it was a bobcat, saying they get large in the "Big Country" area between Abilene and Lubbock.

    Bobcat didn't make sense to me. It wasn't spotted or striped, but solid colored, similar to Mountain Lions. It's facial features also more closely resembled a Mtn Lion, but the body was more stocky like the bobcat. The lack of tail threw me too.

    Link that might mean it was a bobcat.


    It was an interesting trip for animal sightings. Saw a **** Ringneck Pheasant, and splattered 3-4 quail (thud, thud, thud - off the air deflector over the cab). The bear, and deer of every variety (whitetail, blacktail, mule).

    Oh .... almost got me a coyote too, up in Colorado two nights ago.

    On Highway 78 in Stone Mountain, Georgia last wednesday There was a deer in the median by the Jersey wall that had been hit. It had a pretty big set of antlers on it...

    On my way home on Thursday I noticed that the deer was still there...but the antlers were gone!

    Some 'ol boy is bragging to his friends about the eight pointer that he shot last week!:lol:

    That happens a lot. I've seen many deer road kill with missing heads.
