One local business is still profiting from the nine-day firearms deer hunt. Sahs Auto Incorporated of Sturgeon Bay is seeing steady work repairing damage from vehicle-deer collisions. While the shop sees deer damage year round, company President Randy Sahs says the current workload should peak soon.
The cost of deer hits continues to rise. A State Farm survey finds that the average cost to repair deer damage to a vehicle was about $4200 dollars per claim last year compared to just under $4000 in 2015.
