QDMA biologist Kip Adams posted on Instagram: Man I hate to see this. This buck got hit earlier this week just down the road from my house. In the U.S. we hit nearly 1.3 million deer annually with our vehicles. About one in every 23 deer alive will get hit this year, that’s a crazy statistic! Spring (fawning) and fall (rut) are the worst times for deer-car accidents so slow down and be safe.
