Auto deer hits spiking in November

With the highest number of reported car-deer crashes occurring in early November, drivers should slow down and be alert for increased deer activity.  Accidents typically peak during early November as the bucks pursue potential mates during the rut.  Randy Sahs of Sahs Auto Collision in Sturgeon Bay says the early snow precipitation this fall also is contributing to a busy body shop.



Deer activity spikes during the hours around dawn and dusk.  The average cost to repair a November deer strike was $3,875 in 2018, according to an analysis from the Highway Loss Data Institute.
