Just wondering if any Caravaner's have had encounters with the Bustard [Plains Turkey ] I found out what happens to them and what they hit [ see photo below ] I have had Driving Lights destroyed , lucky the lights stopped it from hitting the radiator , And another Truck Driver at the same Co' i was driving for had one go through the Windscreen , So I have thought about if any Vans have been hit ,
Anyone got any stories [truths only] and photo's to back it up /

And a decent sized one will feed 16+ hungry blokes. Oops did I say that? I've been told that a decent sized one......

I've seen one bounce off a cruiser ute windscreen, breaking it and killing itself.

I haven't seen one for ages, they always make me laugh with their heads in the air, walking around like a snobby pom.

They also mate for life, so if you're gonna have one for dinner make sure you finish off his mate as well. Birds have feelings too you know.
Looking for adventure.

Saw a Cokky bust a LC windscreen and bounce off like a footy on the F3.

Ded though tough as nails.
