Drivers, beware: Deer-car collisions increase during hunting season  November 14, 2011 California, Sacramento Bee

Pennsylvania-based Erie Insurance, which has analyzed deer-vehicle collision data in the state for more than a decade, found that the opening day and opening Saturday of deer hunting season are "(t)wo of the most dangerous days to drive." According to the Missouri Insurance Information Service, increased deer activity associated with hunting is a "major factor" in the rise in deer-vehicle collisions in the last three months of the year. With more people (hunters) in the woods, deer are spooked out of wooded areas - often out onto the road.
