Survey: 1-in-79 Wisconsin Drivers Will Hit Deer

A survey by State Farm Insurance shows one in every 79 Wisconsin drivers will hit a deer in the next year. Wisconsin ranks seventh among the states when it comes to how likely a deer-vehicle collision is. West Virginia topped the list for a sixth straight year. Drivers there are twice as likely to hit a deer as they are in this state. November is the month when deer-vehicle collisions are most likely, and most of those accidents happen between 6 and 9 p.m. The average property damage cost of a run-in with a deer is a little over 33 hundred dollars, up almost four and a half percent from last year.
