Well, here’s something you don’t see every day.
Jennifer Luna, a reporter for the Seguin Sun-Gazette, was driving down I-10 when she spotted a large deer hanging off the front of Jeep.
Luna shared the photo online, and it quickly attracted a lot of attention in Seguin. The man who was transporting the deer saw the image and contacted the paper.
70-year-old Bobby Wuest says he was hauling the big deer on a 160-mile trip to Ted’s Auto and Welding in Seguin to drop off the animal. Wuest said he and his friend were just looking for a practical way to haul the big deer.
“I’m very active, but picking up a 200-pound buck is pretty hard,” said Wuest. “He and I came up with this idea; It’s a 205-pound Warn winch, which is basically an electric winch hooked up to the battery. It has pulleys on top, so I can pull up to 2,500 pounds.”
Well, that’s one way to do it.
Wuest’s unorthodox method of transportation certainly attracted a lot of attention online and out on the road.
“I get a lot of thumbs up and perfect hand gestures, and people take pictures of it one after another,” said Wuest. “I got a lot of positive feedback from people.”
