[SIZE=4][B]you return to your vehicle to find this[/B][/SIZE]

[SIZE=4][B]And like me you say to yourself "WTH?!"[/B][/SIZE]

[SIZE=4][B]I know it's the Halloween and all and true I've had some minor problems with local trespassers but ... [/B][/SIZE]

What is the air-speed velocity ...

No. Let me start over.

What are the minimum and maximum flight distances of a laden hawk, where laden = Blue Ridge bunny?

Slow pedestrian? Obnoxious bicyclist? Game warden who asked too many questions?
4.) bluecat - 10/25/2018
Were there any feathers found around the area?
5.) Bob Peck - 10/25/2018
If you look carefully at the photographs there is a giveaway clue.
6.) bluecat - 10/25/2018
Looking at the window I see scratch marks, so maybe an injured dog/coyote was trying to get in. That would be consistent with the blood spatter (dripping down) from below driver's side window.
7.) bluecat - 10/25/2018
I see some bird poop, so maybe a hawk ate something while sitting on top of the driver's side mirror and then after the hawk was good and bloody, moved to top of car where blood dripped down.

What do I win?
9.) bluecat - 10/25/2018
I think you got it Swampy. It may be a few months before we find out though.
10.) crookedeye - 10/25/2018
you were adjusting your sideview mirror, after gutiing a deer with a havolon knife?

[QUOTE=bluecat;57290]I see some bird poop[/QUOTE]
Bingo. It was a bird attacking it's own image (over and over again).

I know this because yesterday in the same spot I was walking towards the vehicle and through the binos watched what looked like a wren or sparrow go at it occasionally dropping to the ground and flying back up for another "go". It would have made a better story if it were a raptor like a fan tail hawk or kestral but such is not the case.

Claw marks on the mirror glass and window
Bird poop on the car
Consistent line of blood across the top of the mirror
Parked near a possible roost
Only on one mirror but not the other

Another case solved by Outdoor CSI. :applause:

But did you get deer blood on that nice hunting rig?

[QUOTE=Jon;57295]But did you get deer blood on that nice hunting rig?[/QUOTE]

Yes. Twice this year. 11 times last year.

I continue to be a source of great annual humor to the hillbillies of Virginia who work at the processor where I donate deer to Hunters for the Hungry. They stop what they're doing and pile out of the processing facility with cell phone cameras in hand to marvel and laugh their guts out at the magic of deer stuffed into the trunk of the company Sonata. They thought when I owned a Dodge Magnum it was funny but this ... this Sonata gets 'em every time.

Someday when I don't have kids in college there may be extra money laying around for a manly man truck but sadly not for a while. Until then... laugh on hillbillies, laugh on!:laugh:

WTF? Put down the pipe and get back into rehab.

There’s an Englishman, a Scotsman and an Irishman being chased down the street by a cop after a night of drinking. (The Englishman, Scotsman and Irishman were doing the drinking this time, not the cop -- that we know of.)

The three run toward an old warehouse where they find three empty sacks on the floor. They each jump in a sack to hide. In comes the copper and sees these three bundles laid out. Goes up to the first one and kicks it. The Englishman shouts out, “Woof Woof”, and the copper thinks it’s just an old dog and leaves it and goes and kicks the second sack. The Scotsman yells out, “Me-ow me-ow”, and the cop leaves this one as well thinking its just an old cat.

He walks over to the last sack and kicks it, and the Irishman yells out, “Potatoes Potatoes..!”
