I try to avoid it, but sometimes I have to drive on roads that have the deer crossings signs posted.

I usually go slow as hell with my left foot hovering over the brake. Makes me nervous, because you never know when one is going to come flying out of the woods.

Those little whistles don't work in my experience. Best thing you can do is watch out. Or what I am doing is having a bumper built that can take out a deer if it runs in front of me.

I had 4 of those stupid whistles on my motorcycle when I hit Bambi at 55mph... They do not work as advertised.

I've had both, I shot one deer off to the side and the elk I hit rolled down the truck and bled everywhere! It sucks.
