  1. About hitting a deer in Wyoming. In the 1990’s I lived in West Virginia. The first one I hit, what a shock for some middle age lady moving out of Connecticut (too crowded, too costly, to urban, and much worse now) to the old house on a hill top in WV! Then I learned, at dusk or dawn, the deer were everywhere, even though the WV hunters LOVED hunting season. They even closed schools during Thanksgiving Week, because many kids, boys and girls hunted. Then I SLOWED way down, 5 to 10 MPH on the way home. The other 2 hit me, got up and walked off. On the interstate I would see HUGE blood spots where I knew some vehicle (lots of pick up trucks) hit a deer at 60 mph and the counties are good about getting the dead deer off the road. They are great to look at, GREAT eating, but even with an average harvest of 200,000, WV back then still (and apparently still does) have a LOT of deer! Wonderful state, and I moved back to BLUE STATE CT due to circumstances, but WV has a HUGE place in my heart! Redbud Season is the greatest, and their Fall Colors rival NH, VT and New England. Heck of a lot less expensive to live in WV. Good people, capable and HELPFUL. Plus, Obama and his killing of coal has turned WV from Dems to REPUBLICANS. They are RED state now.

    The woods are crawling with grizzly, and wolves around here. The biggest wolf I’ve seen, I helped a trapper load up. Two guys could barely get it in truck. In excess of 150 pounds, and massive paws. The wolves are getting huge on deer and elk calves. And so are the Black Bears that eat on carcass left by wolves. And there is also Mountain Lion. The wild west is getting wild once again, and It is flat out getting dangerous. Always go out loaded for the biggest thing out there, even the moose out here are not necessarily afraid of you. Sometimes they will just stand there and look at you for awhile.

    A hot 180 grain round nose in a .308 Winchester is the bear minimum. I prefer more insurance than that. Full auto would be a good option too, but I’ll got is a bolt action. A semi auto 12 gauge is better if you can trust it. And not only do I have to be extra careful if I go out at night this time of year, we now have a badger after the chickens. However I can rest assured that if the any of the libtards invade, they will have more than just snow to slow them down. Some of them will feed the bigger critters around here.

  3. hI, great write up.

    You brought back many nice memories as my family also lived in WV from ’96 to ’01 and had a seven acres tucked in to the Laurel Mountains with beautiful streams and the Monongahela forest and big rivers nearby. Like what happened to you I was driving along when a large deer suddenly leapt out and struck the side of our Toy 4Runner and totaled it.

    My buddy Phil Hudok and I had a Randolph county cable TV program twice a month called, “STORM WARNING: Prove All Things.” Phil is currently running for Sheriff in the same county. I sure do miss that part of the country. Thanks again for the memories, ‘hI’.

  4. Grayish mostly, with dashes or markings of black and white. It’s been awhile. It was scary big. All the wildlife around here is in abundance and healthy. We got it all. Lots to eat. If we are limited by what we can grow up in the mountains, we will have something else to compensate. This is one of the factors that is not usually considered.
