It’s that time of year in Wisconsin and across the nation. It’s the rut. That’s when every buck tries to find a doe.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety approximately 223 people died in animal-vehicle crashes in 2007.
institute records revealed from January 2005 through April 2008, animal-vehicle collisions were three times more likely during November.
Rural areas with speed limits around 55 mph were most dangerous. They note that collisions were more likely to happen between dusk and dawn. So, if you are going to the cabin to get set for the upcoming deer season be careful driving!
