Deer collisions becoming more likely in Wisconsin

Your chances of hitting deer are only going up in Wisconsin according to recently released data. Insurance provider State Farm says Wisconsinites have a 1 in 56 chance of hitting an animal while driving. That’s the second-highest incidence rate in the Midwest and trails only Montana (1 in 39), South Dakota (1 in 48), and Michigan (1 in 54) in that department.  The AAA estimates that the annual deer collision claim is over $4,500 with insurance holders only paying a small portion of that out of pocket. Julia and Paul Stoneman from Stoneman Schopf Agency in Sturgeon Bay say it is best to take care of those claims right away.

October and November are often the peak season for car/deer collisions in Wisconsin due to mating and hunting seasons. In 2019 there were 361 car/deer collisions in Door County and 188 in Kewaunee County according to Wisconsin Department of Transportation data.
