Default Hey Miffy/Grandman Does this sound accurate?

the story


How many 'rescues' do you have a year strictly from vehicles hitting deer?

From the front page of the article: Last year alone 62,707 drivers crashed into deer and those damages cost an average of $2,000. Tim Herrington, owner of Keford Collision & Towing, said this is the time of year he rescues dozens of cars from deer accidents.

Which part of it ? dont matter it sounds about right to me . Dont know the actual numbers but there is a lot of car deer crashs .

This time of year it does get much worse , deer in rut ( chasing does )

Hunters in the woods moving them too , both contribute to there running in the roads this time of year . Spring is bad when the grass first starts turning green also , due to the salt on the road they will be all over the shoulders of the road .

Why do you think the DNR went nuts with hunting licenses ? the INS company wants the deer heard obliterated . He has has the money rules the goverment .

it is sad but that is the truth all the talk of Ill deer and need to thin the herds is bull, along with all the farmer get to shoot them off there property all they want because they eat there crops. And it is working the hurd #'s are down big time around here, I watch the deer and 10 years ago we could see 30 to 40 deer in one day. now your lucky if you see 5 or 6. It keeps going and soon there will be NO Deer for any of us to worry about.:miff:

We hear here that the deer population is expanding too much and that it needs to be thinned out to reduce vehicle accidents. I'm not sure if that is only south of Bay City or not. It was on the news this morning that more antlerless deer hunting licenses are being distributed this year.
