The thing has been up like this for a few years but today it was one elk too much. Wifey says it gives me a project though. I will relocate my antenna switch up on the hill side and likely build a few different setups.

Elk came through my property and one panicked and got stuck in the feedline going up to my dipole. It tore the dipole apart .. one side is stuck up 50 ft in a tree that maybe someone in a few hundred years will find ... I also think the feedline (100ft of LMR400) broke. Got a quick hamstick up but I will be out for a bit :(
