Dammit

I when I was hunting on Friday I backed into a tree on a tight trail, it dented the back plastic any ideas on how to fix it? Here is some pics, thanks

Bending plastic back to where it was originally? Probably not gonna happen. Take it off and see what you can do maybe heat it up a little and push it back?

Take it off and use a heat gun. You will be able to push it back in place no problem. Just make sure you heat all the dented area and push slowly the plastic back on its place.
Not much you can do for the white stress lines that the plastic now has.

No elk in NC. Its deer season here and she was a big BLACK cow. And I would take a foot of snow then what 70 degrees like it is here. Nothing likes to walk in this heat.
