Default RV-3 hits a deer..

A while back (years) a guy hit a deer in an RV-3 or RV-4, took the deer, laid it in front of the plane and took a picture.

Does anyone have the details to this? It seemed like there was a thread on here about it, but I can't find that thread and only one vague mention of it.

Anyone?

Search for "hit deer" and it will come up.

All I can find is the "Oh Deer!" thread where YellowPeril says he knows the guy.

There used to be a thread with a description of the event.

Everytime this picture pops up everyone screams "Photoshop!!!!!" and it just popped up again on FB. LOL

I just had a look through Google using that image as a search term and there was no reference to Vansairforce. It only comes up around 3 dozen times across the internet according to Google.
