Well this isn’t the best list to be in the top 10, but according to State Farm and the Federal Highway Administration Michigan ranks eighth in the country for the most deer collisions making us tied with Wyoming.

According to the latest statistics living in the mitten state we have a 1 in 85 chance of hitting a deer while on the road. The national average is 1 in 169.  At least it’s better than living in West Virginia, where they have a 1 in 41 chance of hitting a deer.

Mating season is when most of the deer collisions happen which is October through December.

So when you’re driving along the country roads, do like I do and honk your horn a lot… or don’t, but keep an eye out for deer.
