David W. Snook, 57, of Bridgewater, New Jersey, died on Wednesday, January 15, when two deer leaped into the path of his Dodge Ram on Route 206. One of them was airborne when it smashed through the front windshield, striking him before exiting out the rear window. This caused the truck to veer into the guard rail and come to rest in a ravine.

The ones coming in high will get you every time. One killed a man locally on the way through the cab and knocked the topper off the bed.
I am always worried about deer. They are absolutely suicidal. While they usually commit suicide at night, I have even seen suicidal deer during the day. I’m not a hunter and never liked hunting much... but I’m also seeing that way too many deer are threatening human lives.
We live just south of the PA border. PA has the highest number of deer-vehicle collisions in the nation, over 100,000 per year (IIRC). I see dead deer on the road every day.
Mayors Against Illegal Suicidal Deer? Probably we need to call nannie bloomers and get him on this.
During the Great Depression, deer disappeared into stewpots ..... that’s likely to start happening (if it hasn’t already) as people get really hungry - just a matter of time. I’ve seen two references now by reputable economists that we are in a depression, one saying it’s as bad as the Great Depression IF the numbers were reported accurately. Farmers are getting run out of business with onerous regs and feed costs. This bitter weather isn’t helping. Folks will have to do what they have to do to feed their families .... the ones NOT in cities are going to be the more fortunate ones.
Remember the lady that was complaining about the deer congregating at the deer crossing signs? They just need to put up some mountain lion crossing signs. The deer will see those and go, “Crap! This is where all the mountain lions are! Let’s get the heck out of here and back into the trees!”
Funny too that you can find herds of them during the “off” season but once the hunting season opens, they’re next to impossible to find. Unless you’re “vewy, vewy quiet”.
I say we kill them back...and eat them!
