Oh dear

My advice for the dear whistles is DON'T. I know some swear by them but you will never see me with them any where near my vehicles. I am originally from N.W. PA. Tons of dear, big ones too. A family friend was in her senior year of college. She drove 40 miles or so to school every day/evening. Her dad decided to try to be safe and install the dear whistles. That evening on her way to school she hit 2 dear. Dear don't care about the whistles, just like some dogs don't care about the silent dog whistles.

Your best bet is just to keep your eyes pealed. Watch for their eyes, and hope for the best. I have came up on dear, turkey, racoon, squirles, local dogs, and several rabbits (and one verry unfortunate one). If you have to hit one try to be square with it. You don't want to be swerving or skidding sideways upon impact.

I never felt the rabbit at 140. Split him into 3rd's. Tail on one side of the road, head on the other, the rest of him was on my headers, block, and in the belly pan. Not fun to clean out at 4:am. (Rabbits smell very bad, espically with the gut-sack half cooked.)

Later,

Steve

That's just nasty.
Look out of those pesky animals.

We have lots and lots of Dear and some Moose. Just be very careful. I had the wistles (2 of them) on a RX7. I was going about 25 miles per hour and hit the deer with a very gentle bump. the dear sat on my pop up head light and then ran away. hey do run if you beep at them.

Going with the masses on this one! Never heard of anyone having 100% success with anything......................
Unfortunately, going to have to just keep an eye out for them!

Attach a big, sharp blade to the front and ride faster.

Good hard-luggage would be a plus, for when you want to get a bite to eat.

oh..now I remember what the hell i was wanting to comment on DEER Whistles have saved me so many times in South Carolina back roads...They always look up because they hear you coming! When i was a kid, we lived on a stretch of rd, I always knew when a cop was coming cuz i could hear the whisles.


Hey Narcissus,

That's how we do it here in Louisiana. Not many zoo's because we eat just about everything...all the way from the rooter to the tooter.
