What a deal! 100 pounds of moose meat for the low price of $90,000 in hospital bills.

You didn't eat it when you struck the moose?

A few years ago, my buddy and his girlfriend were returning from dinner at a bar the next town over (they have the BEST garbage-char wings), and they hit a deer at about 60mph.  He doesn't really remember much, except for what people at the scene told him.  It REALLY rang his bell.  No broken bones, but a good dose of road rash, and his helmet took a big thwack, he is a big boy, 6'1" then 280-ish pounds.  I didn't go see him until a couple weeks later, after he was home from the hospital.  His two college-age sons sat on either side of him, monitoring the conversation.

Me:  "Hey man, how you feeling?"
Buddy:  "Oh, I feel pretty good."
Me:  "You getting back to normal, things coming back to you?"
Buddy:  "Oh yeah, I'm good as new."
His 2 sons look at me and shake their heads back and forth in unison.

It took him quite a while to recover, but eventually he's pretty close to what he was, but now and then, he has trouble remembering something that he thinks should be an easy recollection.

He tried. That's where the $90,000 in hospital bills come from.

Only 100 Lbs of meat? How small was that moose?

I would too. Fark that moose. Make me wreck my bike, now you get to be my burger. You gotta show them who's boss, and eating your enemies is the sweetest revenge.

Hold on, wasn't that the mythbusters?

I could've sworn they did some testing associated with that years ago.

Growing up, we took a trip to the Maine wilderness every year to visit my mom's family. The year I turned 16, I of course wanted to drive as much as possible. We go to a movie in Presque Isle one night and I get to drive back. Mom wasn't with us, or she wouldn't have let me drive in the dark because of the big, scary moose.

Well, she was right to be wary. About halfway back, a huge hulking mass suddenly appears to my left, almost out of thin air. I didn't panic per se, but I also didn't swerve or slam the brakes. We hear a quick thwack and then the moose was gone as quick as it had appeared. I look out my sideview mirror, and whaddyaknow? Gone. I can only assume I clipped the moose's nose with the mirror.

We stopped at the next place with lights to assess the damage, sure enough, mirror shared clean off. Dad says good job not hitting the moose. You weren't driving and we'll tell mom that someone must have taken out the mirror while we were in the movie. She bought it.

There are worse things to hit a moose with.   If you ride low enough, scrunch down and try to slide under it, you have a good chance of survival.   If it lands on you, not so much.

Oh man, he is for a rough time. I broke both my wrists a few years back and it was not  a pleasant experience, the breaking or the recovery. And I lived alone so I had no one to help me with certain tasks, such as opening up brand new bottles of Gin, Vermouth, and olives to make myself a drink (took me 30 minutes! and water pump pliers!).

A guy in my high school was driving late one night in rural FL and hit a deer while he was on his motorcycle. He wasn't sure how fast exactly he was going, but said it was well in excess of 100mph.

First of all, the deer...... exploded into a shower of meat chunks.
He said by the time he came to a halt on the road (and luckily he was wearing full leather riding gear, head to toe) he could see his bike still rolling and bouncing along.
Broke most of his major bones.

It's surprising that it was the moose that died. They're farking huge.

In Ohio, at least when I got my license there when I was 16, if you hit a deer, you could keep it if you called the DNR for a tag

Hey, free deer.

I was tramping about in the woods in Vermont once. Saw a moose about 60 meters away moving absolutely silently and effortlessly and QUICKLY through terrain I was struggling with.

It was terrifying.

Only the huge mooses are huge. The medium size mooses are medium size.

Yeah, same for Michigan though not sure the DNR needs to be involved.   You can also contact your local sheriff department and put your name on a call list so if the driver doesn't want the deer they'll give you a call to collect.

Nope. The smallest they come is Large, and those are the babies. You don't want to hit a large moose because Mom is nearby, uninjured, PISSED, and easily capable of killing you.

Surprised this guy lived. If you hit a moose with a car your chances of dying are high.

beezeltown: What a deal! 100 1500pounds of moose meat for the low price of $90,000 in hospital bills.


FTFY
Still not a good deal though.

TFA said they recovered 100 pounds. Otherwise, yes, I would agree on the quantity.
