White-tail highway



Things I wouldn't have known without reading the Sunday New York Times.

Your odds at hitting a deer on the highway in Arkansas? One in every 110 vehicles will hit a deer in the next 12 months.

Those are the worst odds in the U.S. save Iowa (1 in 109), Wisconsin (1 in 99), Michigan (1 in 86), West Virginia (1 in 57) and Pennsylvania (1 in 100).

Motorists still have better odds than the deer. Same article says there are 32 million white-tail deer in the U.S.  and hunters kill about 6.6 million a year -- 1 in 5.
