Our local Utah/Wyoming mountains have a lot of wild life (elk, deer, etc.), plus a good bit of free range livestock (cows, sheep). Never drive at dusk/night because of this, but the free range animals frequently trespass on the roads even in daylight, while the wildlife is drawn to same once the mountain shadows cover the road as early as 3 pm in some areas. Plus there are those occasional misplanned trips where I find myself miles from home with dusk/night approaching.

Does anybody have any experience with the deer/animal avoidance systems on the market? I know Hornet makes an electrical system that emits a high pitch sound to scare the animals away, and I've seen others that work simply with airflow. Does anyone know if any of these systems are effective or know of another type that is.

the only thing that i have heard is that they only get the attention of the deer and that when a dear is grazing on the side of the road i think the last thing you would want to do is get his attention.....as far as running deer i dont think it would make a diff.....there on a mission....and nothing seems to change thier mind....think about it.....running in the road with semi trucks and cars ....i would think that if that noise wont stop them nothing will....i think alot of that stuff is just hype....and the fact that your doing say 70 mph...there not going to hear it intime and most likly until you pass...those kinda things i have heard....and how would you test it anyways...best thing i think is a sharp eye and pay attention....one eye on the asphalt and one eye in the grass...i do it everyday...youll know where every broken bottle and roadside reflector is after a while....just stay sharp!!

I had read some time ago of a test on some of those deer warning sound devices.

it said the deer can not hear that noise, maybe some dogs can.

I think we all should carry shotguns and shoot any size deer we see at any time.
We have why too many in the USA. They have become dangerous for us.

screw Bambie.
