DEER-CAR COLLISIONS:  WHAT ARE THE ODDS?

A driver had a 1 in 169 chance of striking a deer last year, according to State Farm, the nation's largest car insurance company.  In 11 states, the odds were better than 1 in 100. 

The chart below is a projection of deer collisions by state for the year ending June 30, 2014 - the last year the data was available for at press time - estimated by State Farm, and a ranking of odds that considers the number of licensed drivers in each state.  In addition to the accompanying chart, you can find an interactive map by

SOCIAL MEDIA TIPS

It's that time of year when we all want to show off our hunting success.  Here is a well written article to guide you through it in today's world.


 

In today’s hyper connected world, we can text, email and post updates about our personal lives to social media in real time. It’s easier to discuss ideas, politics and to stay in touch with friends and family.

Unfortunately, its also easier to become a victim of identity theft, hate speech, or condemnation for personal beliefs and actions. Sportsmen are no exception, and have faced widespread scrutiny (Change.org Users Seek to Ban Hunting Photos from Facebook) for posting images with harvested animals.

Follow these social media etiquette tips to avoid becoming the anti-hunters next target:

YOUR FIRST 3 MUST-DO'S ON YOUR NEW HUNTING LEASE. 

                  By Sean Ferbrache COO, American Hunting Lease Association

Congratulations to you and your pals.  Securing your own hunting lease is a big step, but one you will be glad you took.  No other arrangement can bring you the safety and quality of hunting private land like a hunting lease.

I don’t want to repeat the same topics I wrote about in the last two articles of this series.  If you want to review those, they can be found here:

Let’s Do It.  Choosing the Right Hunting Lease.  September  2015
                Are You Ready for A Hunting Lease?  July 2015

Instead, let's really take a look at how you can make the very most of your new hunting lease.  Of course, “when” you signed the lease will have an impact on what you can and/or should do on your lease.  Let’s assume your lease was signed, insured and paid for in the early fall. This might limit your options with regard to food plots, but valuable clues are starting to show up that will help guide your strategies.  Read more.
