I was hard on the brakes with the anti-lock kicking in as I struck that cow. Knocked it down and pushed it under my skid plate as it got drug down the gravel road for a few yards. As soon as I came to a full stop, that cow jumped up out from under my truck and looked at me with as much of a "WTF" look on his face as a cow can muster and then ran off into the pasture, just missing a patch of hair on his side. Messed up my bumper and fender but the truck was still driveable. We met up with the rancher and his wife in town, with me not really being in the mood to party now that my truck is messed up, and then come to find the rancher had the wrong date for the charity dinner and it was the next weekend! He felt bad so we found a restaurant and he bought us dinner.


So, did you tell the rancher that you ran over his calf?

I hit a huge 4 point mule deer just East of Burns Oregon in 1999. Luckily I had a big bumper/tow bar on the front on my truck. Still dented the hood and bumper. Unfortunately I didn't know at the time I could have kept it. One of the biggest deer I had ever seen at that time.
