How to avoid hitting deer this fall

The Insurance Information Institute — a non-profit communications organization supported by the insurance industry — has just published a list of steps to help motorists avoid deer-vehicle collisions this fall. Some of the tips include:

Be especially attentive from sunset to midnight and during the hours shortly before or after sunrise. These are the highest risk times for deer-vehicle collisions.

Brake firmly when you notice a deer in or near your path, but stay in your lane. Many serious crashes occur when drivers swerve to avoid a deer and hit another vehicle or lose control of their cars.

Do not rely on devices such as deer whistles, deer fences and reflectors to deter deer. These devices have not proven effective.

via Warning to Motorists: Fall Is Peak Season for Deer-Vehicle Collisions.

North Carolina didn’t make the list of states with the highest incidence of deer-vehicle collisions, but West Virginia did. And itsĀ  mountainous areas closely resemble the terrain of Asheville and Western North Carolina, where deer ramble in abundance every fall.

For those who are more interested in encountering deer, the North Carolina deer-hunting season in Western has been in full swing for several weeks. Hunting-related searches are picking up on Iwanna.com including searches for deer camps, guns and bows. North Carolina’s archery deer hunting season runs through tomorrow (Oct. 2). Muzzle-loading season for deer is the week of Oct. 10-16, and rifle season beginsĀ  Oct. 17 and runs through the end of year.
