    the fact is

    you may or may not be able to cut down on the probability of hitting a deeer. remember that they just as ofter run into a vehicle as the vehicle runs into them.
    bottom line, ya gotta ask yourself,

    Always know how close the car is behind you. If you see anything brake first, decide what it is later. I may have slowed for things that were not deer more than I have for the deer. However, slowing for deer is a good thing, and outweighs slowing for false alarms

    Wear gear!

    and smile, a lot
