Yeah, stops them cold, just like a....deer in the headlights.
Cool if it works. 45 years of driving in rural Wisconsin with no deer hit...then, in one year, I hit five in separate incidents.
Then the loony left would want to give the deer birth control to stop the invasion of deer.
How about extensive harvests in areas that have high deer hits? Speaking for myself, I have hit 4 over the 23 years I have lived in KS and I absolutely dread the rut season.
Can I use this to encircle the apple trees in my garden?
The deer kill at least half the trees I have planted. My next step is a 5 foot razor wire fence.
Wish I had had one of these a couple of weeks ago.
I think this may be used by more hunters than drivers...
Sounds cool, can we using them for hunting?
Deer and other large animals cause 2700 traffic accidents a day? Really?
“it literally stops the animals in their tracks as cars pass by.”
Yep, the old deer in the head light trick.
Then bam you hit one.
In coastal California, with the small coastal deer, that might not be a problem unless you nail an Alpha Buck or doe. One of our friends hit a big buck and did about 8K$’s in damage to her big white* luxury suv.
For about a decade I carried a skinning knife and fillet knife, a small butcher saw, and a few large Zip lock bags in the back of my OJ Simpson Bronco. That was passed on to a younger relative, who got an early inheritance of the decade old Bronco. It is rumored that a small coastal deer striking a white suv, will cause minamal damage to a large OJ Simpson Bronco and have excellent tasting back straps.
*White vehicles and deer kill.
This is not a scientific study, but it seems that our California coastal deer for some reason do not see the all white vehicles and often will walk right into one. They don’t seem to see grey vehicles either, and we have watch when driving my wife’s grey vehicle. They seem to see blue, and they get out of the way of my blue pickup which replaced the all white OJ Simpson Bronco.
I need one of those for the garden.
Please Move The Deer Crossing
It suggests the deer moved on to another area or there was something in the present that deterred them. Deer are one step up from goldfish as the stupidest animals on the face of the earth.
Years ago we put those deer whistles on all our vehicles because we got tired of them committing suicide on them. The whistles didn't do a thing. This new whistle won't either.
wondering if it would work on illegals....
Great idea, but I would prefer lower rates on deer licenses and higher number takes allowed (and fewer restrictions). I think would fix the problem more than this, but then I just like hunting.
My husband and I were driving at night in either Nebraska or Colorado, I don't remember which, in my Jag, and a cop came up behind us with his lights on. We pulled over and wondered why he did this since we weren't speeding and the Jag was in good shape.
He came to Bill's window and said, “I know you weren't speeding, but you don't know this road. Go no more than 35 mph until you get to the next town. There are Elk on this road all the time. Bill said we had the same trouble with deer in Texas. Cop said an Elk is much larger than a deer and the damage would be great.
Now, I think he said Elk, and not Moose but I'm not positive as that was a number of years ago. We went at that reduced speed on that road until we got to town.
I have friends in Bandera, Texas, and that area must be the homeland for every deer in Texas. That's the hill country and the friends live on a high hill. When my son and I visit these friends, going back we are on the road at night from their house back to Bandera and on to Boerne where we stay. From their house to Bandera, we don't go over 10-15 mph because deer own those roads and cross continually. It's like driving through a zoo with no animals in cages.
People who live there have deer guards on the front of their cars/trucks. Both my friends have hit deer from the deer suddenly charging out of the woods and into the front of their car and the friends know to go slowly but they still hit the deer.
