Deadliest month for drivers

GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) - With deer mating season, November is the deadliest month for drivers.

Hunter, Donald Dykstra says, "We don't see very many deer in the woods but we see a lot when we're driving. I was coming home last night and I had one run out in front of me."

The government says every year deer kill nearly 200 American's, cause 10,000 injuries, and cost drivers one billion in damages.

Locally Kent County responds to about 1,900 deer crashes, the most of any county. Both Allegan and Ottawa Counties respond to 1,000 crashes.

Hunters say beyond sport, deer hunting keeps deer on dinner plates instead of car hoods.

Dykstra says, "You just brace for the impact, but luckily she kept going and I didn't hit her."

It's one time this hunter is happy he missed his target.
