OP, I am glad your wife is OK. Most of you probably know this, but if you want to minimize the possibility of hitting a deer, try to find out when the deer rut is in your area, typically lasts 1-2 weeks. That time of the year and 1-2 weeks prior to that (so called pre-rut), the bucks are cruising around looking for a mate. Filled with testosterone, they have little regard for humans or vehicles. The does, chased by these bucks, tend to be unpredictable as well as they are trying to run away from their “suitors”. Rut time combined with the shorter day light can make driving treacherous in states with high deer population.

I am an avid deer hunter (not very good at it though ) and l love the pursuit of this beautiful creature. In large parts of the country, humans are the only predators keeping the deer population in check.

Happy New Year!
