November peak time for crashes
November is the most dangerous month of the year for deer-vehicle collisions in Illinois, according to insurance company State Farm. Such collisions are three times more likely to occur in November than they are on any day between Feb. 1 and Aug. 31.
Last year, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office handled about 100 deer-related accidents – 14 percent of the total accidents handled by sheriff’s deputies that year.
Kerry Novak, park superintendent at Shabbona Lake State Park, said that the deer herd this year seems large. The second or third week of November is the peak of the deer’s rut, or breeding season, he said.
