A Wisconsin deer-motorcycle crash can do serious damage. Please know that they usually travel in herds and show up during evening and early night.Deer accidents are three times more likely to occur in November than anytime between February and August. In Wisconsin, which is ranked seventh in the nation for deer-car collisions, the risk of hitting a deer is one in 79.

This risk doesn’t just affect drives of cars: 4.4 percent of deer crashes involve a motorcycle. Deer can do serious damage, both to a motorcycle and the motorcyclist; 33 percent of injuries and 78 percent of deaths in all deer-related crashes involve motorcyclists.

Tips to avoid Wisconsin deer-motorcycle crashes

  • Use your high beams when traveling in areas where deer are likely.
  • Be watchful near posted deer crossing signs. These indicate active deer crossing areas. Slow down, use your high beams, and prepare to brake.
  • Be careful in the evening and early night. Deer are most active between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m.
  • Remember that deer usually travel in herds. If you see one deer, there are likely to be more nearby.
  • If you see a deer, slow down. Try not to swerve as that could put your motorcycle in the path of a larger vehicle. Brake hard.
  • Wear protective gear. You may not be able to avoid crashing into a deer, but you can reduce your chances of serious injury.
