Whitetail Deer Made of Car Parts

Scrappy the Whitetail Deer is still there, and just behind him is a large tree sculpture that has fallen apart -- but is still neat to see!

Whitetail Deer Made of Car Parts

Along with Scrappy, there's a buffalo statue and Sinclair dinosaur at the same location, and some sort of concrete tree with bones embedded in it...can't tell if it's falling apart or in the process of being assembled, as there are pieces lying around! New attraction being born, perhaps? Lots of nice picnic tables too, if you need a stop for lunch!

Large Whitetail Deer Made of Auto Parts

A previous posting lists this as a big elk sculpture. In fact, it is a whitetail deer (You only have to look at pictures of both online and compare). It is certainly made of old auto parts and is astride a crushed car body. It's a very good piece of art.

Scrappy, Majestic Mech Deer

I detoured to visit Scrappy mid-January 2014 and he is sadly no longer there. I could see the base that he used to sit on, but the property is for sale and I'd assume the owners took him with them.

This appears to be the "Scrappy, Majestic Mech Deer," which used to stand in Kerrville, Texas.
