It's the perfect ride; quiet country road, smooth pavement, picturesque scenery and the hum of the road. Just the Hearing Protection for Motorcycle Ridersmotorcycle and the country; an escape from the stress and business of life. Suddenly a deer appears out of nowhere and in an instant, that biker loses his/her life. It's an all too common story in Wisconsin and across the country and one that all motorists need to be aware of.

To date, six motorcyclists have lost their lives because of deer compared to two fatalities in all 2015 and eight in 2014 and there are still a few months left for riding season. Since no one could ever predict when or where a deer will pop out, it's up to the rider to watch for them.

According to Department of Natural Resources (DNR), there are more deer-vehicle collisions during the months of October and November when deer are most active during the breeding and May and June when yearling are seeking out new areas to live.
