A good friend of mine was out hunting during this week's deer season opener. He was riding a four wheeler in the dark up to his deer stand and rolled the vehicle on a steep embankment. He was bruised, but otherwise unhurt. His Winchester Model 70 was on the four wheeler and took a major hit. I have not seen the rifle yet, however I have it on good authority that the stock is in four pieces. I asked about the action, barrel and scope and was told that the owner was too upset to do a close inspection. I will get the rifle this weekend and cannot wait to see the extent of the damage. I have a stock for the rifle. Oh, well. All the best...
Gil

Gil, do you want to borrow some of my Kevlar to wrap the action with when you pull the trigger?

Still waiting for the damaged rifle to be delivered. I called my local gunsmith in case his services are needed. All the best...

Sounds nasty Gil. I remember reading somewhere where there are more deaths recorded from quad accidents than anything else off-road.

Most important thing is your mate is ok...even if his pride is a bit dented. Rifles and quads can be repaired...its a little more difficult to repair the human body if it has taken a big hit.

As Joe says...a few pics would go a long way to reminding those of us that use quads of the dangers.

Cheers, Vince

I thought the quads were suppose to be the solution to 3-wheelers causing more deaths than anything else off-road!?!?

Yep...have vague recollections of that too mate. Biggest problem is the way some people ride them...they ride beyond their capabilities, causing accidents and bending good rifles.

Cheers, Vince
