WHAT TO DO IF YOU'RE GOING TO HIT A DEER

Slow down, and grasp the steering wheel firmly, with both hands. Brake hard, without locking the wheels and skidding. Steer straight and stay in your lane. Do not use extraordinary measures to avoid the deer. This could put you in greater danger by crossing lanes into oncoming traffic or by hitting things like telephone poles.

WHAT TO DO IN CASE YOU HIT A DEER

If you hit a deer and cause its death, you may take possession of the deer, by law, as long as you report the collision to a game protector or other law enforcement officer. The game protector or officer will then investigate and issue a certificate entitling you to the carcass. It is illegal to take a deer carcass without reporting it.
