Pay attention when scouting game.

This pig hunter found the only hole on the side of the road for 11 miles. The authorities left the vehicle like this for three days as and example for tourists to pay attention.

Wow, that old truck has enough rust to be from New England.

I don't see a problem getting that thing out of there. All ya need is a couple Kanaka Nui's to stand on the left rear bumper. Unless, of course, the rear bumper hasn't rusted off, yet.

Yep, tinworms have been busy! Rust never sleeps.

Shoulda kept his eyes on the road and his hands on the wheel...

These guys are always out on the sand near the water so they get the real salt treatment. I agree, that's about 2 years worth of New England salt brine mix on the roads. We used to spray our trucks with used motor oil and kerosene for
Winter protection, but that's a no no today.

We still do spray them with used oil. I just had both our vehicles done. $110 a piece. Skip a year lose the battle with the rust.
