Texas drivers encounter a 1 in 269 chance of hitting a doe or buck in the next 12 months; that’s a 7 percent increase over last year, according to data compiled by State Farm.
Other new data from the insurer reveal that nearly half of all deer-related crashes in Texas -- 46 percent -- occur between October and December.
The 15th annual State Farm deer claim study uses claims data and state licensed driver counts in its study.
Part of the study also tracks claim expenses. The amount to fix your car from a deer strike has increased by about $200, with a national average insurance claim of $4,179.
