If a deer does run in front of your vehicle, brake firmly but do not swerve. Swerving can cause a vehicle-vehicle collision or cause the vehicle to strike a pedestrian or potentially deadly fixed object, such as a tree or utility poleDeer often travel in pairs or groups, so if deer are spotted crossing the road, slow down and be alert that others may followBriefly use flashers or a headlight signal to warn approaching drivers when deer or moose are spotted in or near the highwayDo not rely on devices, such as deer whistles, extra lights or reflectors, to deter deer. Research has shown that your best defense is your own responsible behavior
I was curious if deer-vehicle accidents were common in the Basin? I was told, yes. I see coyote's that were smacked, along the road. I found a list of suggestions to avoid hitting a deer.
I like this deer photo. He is mocking us!
