HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The Pennsylvania Game Commission estimated last season’s deer harvest at over 315,000 animals.
That’s a lot of deer but does not include the tens of thousands of deer killed each year on our highways. Pennsylvania’s road kill alone outnumbers total hunting harvests of most other states.
What happens to them all? And what about bears and other game as well?
Fortunately, not all of that venison goes to waste.
Collisions with deer and other animals are costly as well as dangerous, not only to your vehicle and passengers but also to the herd. Losing that many deer each year is a big blow to the deer population.
Be alert when driving in deer country. Let’s cut those numbers down.
